Sticky switches, dash components

So I have a 2014 F type V8S here in Florida. The sticky surfaces are driving me crazy, around the window switches, surround around the door handles, and several other places, the surfaces are sticky and there is a sticky film that I can scrape off with my nail. Obviously Jaguar never tested their products in a hotter climate than Birmingham England so the rubberized surface wasn't an issue? However, this sucks, as they say. Anyone else have this issue and has found a solution. I bet that Jaguar resolved this issue in later model years.

Me too

Crap materials. I don't think it's the heat or humidity, I think it is the lack of resistance to normal, common detailing materials; armorall, etc.

Sticky components

Hello!!

In Georgia I had a 2014 F-type and traded it in for a 2016. Love it!
So we have a home in Hawaii so I bought a 2014 F-type sight unseen from a dealership
in Honolulu and had it shipped to Maui.

The paddle shifters and other buttons are sticky and its gross.
I don't know what I can do except for goo remover??


I'm happy with my F-types but I want to clean it up.

Sorry for the extremely late response, I never did see your question. But I returned my 2014 car to the Dealership and they replaced all the sticky and gross door grips, buttons, steering wheel cover, you know what I'm talking about. Obviously they never tested their cheap materials for service in a warmer place than Birmingham England, in August.

........But I still love that engine.

Has anyone else had any luck getting their dealership to change out the gooey plastics? I'm in Louisiana and mine are really bad. Even the surround on the pop up vent in the dashboard is sticky.
