Handheld VHF160 troubles....

Iíve got a WEST MARINE handheld WHF160.

Itís been a great unit for many years.

Recently, the Volume/Squelch button has been acting up. Sometimes it would need to be held 5-10 seconds before allowing adjustments of vol/sq.

Now, it will not allow any adjustments at all.

I can hear the button clicking as I press it , but nothing happens.

Iíve charged the battery, removed and reinstalled the battery and Iíve scrubbed around the button with running water and a toothbrush. Itís waterproof.

If it wasnít a waterproof vhf, Iíd take it apart and clean the button contacts with alcohol and a q-tip. Due the need for being waterproof, Iím hesitant to disassemble it.

Any suggestions before I disassemble???

Thank you in advance!
