Default throttle trim button sticks

Anyone every have their throttle trim button stick, lately my trim button in my throttle sticks in the up position, doesn't do it all the time but often, I have a 98 42 with the white shifters, does the switch come out fairly easy? any surprises.

Mine did once, 29 single, sprayed the switch with WD40 in both the up and down position and solved the problem

Mine stuck down the other day while docking and didn't realize it, burned up the seloineds for the drive trim so be careful if it sticks

luckily the trim stuck tripped the circuit breaker under the rear seat and didn't fry anything
