Would Honda Warranty Cover This or Can I Buy The OEM Button?

Hi,

First of all, I apologize if this is posted in the wrong thread section. I'm new here, but thrilled to be a part of the community!

I just purchased a 2022 Honda Accord Sport 2.0T (for a ridiculous price) and less then 200 miles/5 days in, I noticed the paint is already coming off my steering wheel's button? Some of you will think i'm just overreacting, but I am OCPD (working on it) and did just buy a new car that I handle very cautiously. The dealership is already going to be fixing part of my center console trim because it came much more noticeably chipped.

Do you think Honda's warranty will cover replacing this button or would that require replacing the entire steering wheel? I assume the button presumably even just pops off and can be replaced, so i'd be okay replacing it myself if they wouldn't cover it. I just don't know where to find an OEM new button replacement? I can only find cheap plastic Ebay covers.

I'll be sure to leave some photos below. Again, i'm sure some of you will just roll your eyes at the minuscule damage, but please be understanding of my situation.

Thanks,
Dylan

I would think (hope) your dealership would replace that under warranty for you as it was probably damaged during the build of your car. I wasn't able to find the button by itself but think this is the assembly that will contain it - P/N 36770-TVA-A21 Switch Assembly, Cruise & Acc & Lkas & Hud. Good luck and let us know how it is resolved.

I appreciate you trying to find the button for me, I also found this:

Which I think is a newer version of it? Looks like a singular button probably doesn't exist that is OEM. Figured i'd share the link just incase anyone on the forms is looking for it.
You're welcome. The part I found was for my model year (2018) which I have saved to that website when I look for parts and forgot to change it to your model year. Something you may try if they don't want to replace it under warranty is try using a black permanent marker to cover that spot up.
@Dylberts did you get this resolved?
If this thread was required to be closed or something I apologize for not doing so.
No requirement to close a thread and no apologies needed... I was just curious as to the outcome.
