    Hi, the two buttons that toggle the nav system in my 2012 R60 Countryman S All4 are frozen/jammed and no longer toggle the nav screens. Tried compressed air, nothing. Any tricks to make them loose or do I have to pull apart the center console and fix something?

    I'm sure my wife's 2012 convertible will someday face the same fat. Thanks.

    I can't help either, but I misread the subject as "Nav butts frozen" and I immediately thought "Tell the Nav to drive south" :D

    CRC QD Contact Cleaner. Try it out before you disassemble, it is plastic safe. Use it on my toggles when I spill coffee.
