OEM Navigation help

My Navi is on the fritz. I believe its water related because I left my sunroof open one night. Its been months so the car has dried out.

Whats happening is when I change radio channels using the number memory buttons, all channels will set their memory to the current station. The rotary button on the right side delays and sometimes doesnt register when I push it in ie: when I use the Navi to input letters or push for an option.

Just wondering where i should look to clean the connections? Under the seats perhaps?

The Navs also suffer from being right below the AC vents so condensation drips down. I would think this is more related to the inside of the nav unit. I just took mine apart, maybe there is a short behind the buttons, or corrosion etc. Also the "radio/ tuner" is in the trunk (someone please confirm if teh presets are held in the trunk tuner or head unit", the head unit is basically just a monitor. I recently disassembled mine and put a new LCD in, when I put it back in the car I still have all the presets. I believe each sides buttons connect to a board with a ribbon cable, maybe one came loose or is deteriorated.
