I have a 2003 CTS with the Luxury Sport package. Recently, my Sport mode and snow mode switches beside the shifter have been sticking.

Can anyone tell me how to access them? I think the wife may have spillled some kind of liquid on them. They still function, but are sticking at times very badly.

So...does the cover holding them just snap off, or what?

Thanks,

Henry

You may wanna try a bit of WD-40 and work it in to dissolve some of the crud.
Be careful.

Don't use WD-40 on electrical connections, because it may leave a residue that will further gum things up!! Use alcohol or a spray electronic parts cleaner, available at most hardware stores or Radio Shack..."
WD 40 can be thought of as "Spray Kerosene", & can stain, & shouldn't be used in places where your would not think of spraying kerosene .."
