Sticky Steering Wheel Buttons?

We've had our '02 E320 wagon for a couple weeks now.

I noticed that the steering wheel push buttons are "sticky" - they stick to your finger, as if they're covered with syrup or something.

Afraid to damage the finish, I cleaned 'em (and the st wheel) with mild soap (Woolite)and warm water. They're still just as sticky - almost as if the finish itself is sticky. Maybe damaged with some idiot goo such as Armorall or something?

I'm anxious not to ruin them with solvent - any ideas?

Does MB know about it, dealers are fully aware. Are they doing any thing NO, they changed mine under "good will". There are some that have scraped with limited sucess, they are easy to change, not cheap, the switches are replaced, on the shelf in most dealerships. It seems they fail "post warranty", and are not safety related, fill in the blanks yourself.
