Start stop button replacement

I have searched, but couldn't find an answer.
Are there alternative buttons available, ie ones that don't eventually rub off? Maybe with a metal button?
Aliexpress job? Anybody have any experience with the ones available there?

I bought just a button cover just to cover up smudged lettering. Had it on 6 months and its fine

Is the button cover the same concave shape on the inside ,or is it flat and does it cover hhe whole button?
 It can when others can't,
It will when others won't,
It goes where others don't.

If I remember correctly it came concave and covers the whole thing

Did mine a while back .... got a red one .... think it was listed for an Evoque.


As a tip [especially if it's a cheap Chinese replacement], best to carry your original button in the Disco for a bit, just in case of failure.

I think I need the red one!

It might help me remember where it is as the MG5 one is almost exactly the same but on the other side of the steering column. Censored

Is living with a 'smudged button' really that much of a disaster?

Sometimes you just have to accept these things and worry about something that's important.

It is by no means a disaster at all, as the functionality is still there. But here in the first world
sometimes it is nice to have things looking tip top, even if they are 14 years old. Laughing

is that like this button? just plug-n-play vs the old style button in the D4? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/195945721574?it...K6G8JE2RS7

I bought silver which also looks way better than previous, I also bought the 5 knob covers for the stereo/AC etc, they are pretty crappy, they go over the existing stuck on with double sided sticky, they also hide the led's on the AC levels!
