Default Replacement buttons for electric seats

Has any of you found replacement buttons for these controllers?
They cost an arm and a leg new, and buttons can't be bought separately.

I took a chance on some relacement buttons for newer audi models but sadly they didn't fit.

Any ideas?

Interested to follow this, as mine (in platinum) are well worn. I was thinking of swapping them for black ones

I managed to find 2 buttons on Polish ebay (allegro.pl) for 27 inc. postage
they had no part numbers as they're part of the whole button assembly.

the seller has dozens of them:

No English version but you can use the Chrome browser and have it translate from Polish to English. However, I suspect that the issue is when searching for an item. For that I'd suggest you used Google Translate in combination with the site to first translate your search criteria to Polish and then copy and paste into the Allegro site. It's not going to be foolproof but should help. Searching by part number (if you know it and the seller lists it) would be better.

Did exactly that - entered the Polish 'FOTEL VW CRAFTER' and the 3rd result was exactly what I was looking for (going by the pics anyway).

We have a polish guy working on a machine for us at the mo. Will use his services for translation on Tuesday
