    I’ve tried everything short of pulling apart the interior. I want to avoid that, any tips?

    I used a clay bar.... Warmed it.... Then stuck it on.... Waited a minute and let it set..

    Then pull hard and fast....

    Worked great

    i used claybar on mine. heat it up a little so its more workable. maybe even the 3M double sided tape stuck to something and pull it straight out. or last resort to a hot glue gun stick, but it might be a pain to clean the button after.

    The crazy thing is...I tried the 3M tape as well. It did much better than the putty but still didn't come out. Think I should stick some 3M tape on the button and let it stick for a half hour then try it again? Clay bar is my next step after that.

    heating up the 3M also helps it stick much better. try to stick it to a bottle cap and use the bottle as leverage? haha idk just thinking of something for more leverage.

    Try using clay from a clay bar. Make it the same size as the button and about 1 inch long. (Like a tootsie roll shape)

    Warm it in your hand until it's sticky. Put it on the button and then run your ac on full while holding it for 2 minutes.

    In one motion... Pull straight out .... So fast u almost hurt your arm.

    If u fail.... Do it again.
