Climate control button can be replaced?

I have 2010 BMW 7 series and one of climate control button is somewhat damaged due to high usage.

I found this picture from ebay which has similar issue (Please look at driverside fan button). Is it possible to just replace the button just like older models? or has to replace the whole unit?
Any idea?

Looks like each button can be replaced but not sure if they sell them each.

It's a known issue; I'd press dealer to press corporate.

Yes, quite disgusting; not happy, as it's [slowly] happening again.

$110k+ car should NOT do this.
