ZL Button is sticky - not working

My Nintendo Wii U Pro controller has what seems to be something sticky inside the ZL button. Beyond the complete teardown video, which doesn't go in to much detail about specific parts. Can someone walk me through this fix?

Hi Erik. Thanks for the reply. Do you have experience using this product on a button like this? I googled the 3m product you mentioned, and from what I am reading, this would be an off label use. I'm leaning more in the direction of opening the controller and, my original plan was to clean the components with isopropyl alcohol swabs. Perhaps, this 3M cleaner is more adviseable? I ordered the correct tools from ifixit tonight, so I have some time...

isopropyl alcohol swabs work when you need to remove some liquid left in the device. 3M cleaner should help to remove stickiness.

Either one should work fine. Together should work even better.
