Default Ranger button switchs

I have a 2014 Reata which on the dash has all those button switches and some are getting a little sticky and do NOT pop out easily
Is there a better replacement or something different or can/should you spray some lubricant in the back??

Any and all suggestions would be appreciated THX!

Give the ranger factory a call and ask them.

You have to be very careful about spraying chemicals into switch and plastic.

Often the chemical is all right, but the propellant in the spray can can sometimes melt the plastic.

Check with the manufacturer before doing anything.

Good luck

Just curious. How many and what years did Ranger use those types of switches?

Tri Flow would be the lube of choice for me. I haven't messed with mine though yet as they work fairly well.

Mine do the same thing on my '16 1880. I called Ranger parts and the new replacement switches are about $17 each, the complete loaded panel was around $250.

I also called and talked to my Ranger dealer and they said they've seen lots of boats come back with those switches being a problem and Ranger is on their 3rd or 4th revision of the switch.
