Traction Control Button

So to start off I have a 2008 E90 M3, and in an odd turn of events, my traction control button has popped off and managed to disappear. I have search top and bottom of my car and can't find it anywhere. The top cover of the button that you press on is the only piece that is missing, I am still able to press the button, but the annoying part is the orange LED shines upwards and sometimes catches me in the eye.

Has anyone had this happen before? Do you know if you can just buy the button itself and not the whole assembly? If so where? Thanks for the help in advance.

And just to clarify, I did search for about an hour online to try to find any better info, but have come up dry.

Put some duct tape on the button. Call the dealer and ask.

Call the dealer to see if they sell it. Never heard of this issue.

Hey, I have the button tray for you if you want to buy it off of me. The cord to the tray is broken, so the functions electronically doesn't work as a direct swap, but the buttons pushes down just fine. In fact, the easiest swap for you would be to swap out the top part of this entire replacement tray with your bottom half's circuit board. It's just 2 screws.


Let me know.
