I am looking for the procedure to completley default a 3502i AP and reset the username and passwords. It has previously been associtated with a controller at another clients site. All the documentation I have found so far outline procedures for older APs.
"On the CAPWAP or the LWAPP APs the MODE BUTTON procedure does not work" On top of my head i can think of 2 options..
1>> Convert the AP back to Autononous, clear the private config and then reconvert it back to CAPWAP and sue the default Cisco / Cisco and see if that works..
2>> This the Right way to... issue the commandon the WLC CLI..
Controller > config ap mgmtuser add username
If we have multiple WLC and if the AP is moving back and forth between the 2.. Then on both the WLC configure the below command and let me know the status..
Ex – Controller > config ap mgmtuser add username Cisco password Cisco secret Cisco AP1131
If we have Primary and Secondary WLC, please issue the command on both..
lemme know if this answered your question..

I did the following to default it -
1. Hold down the mode button till the light turned amber.
2. enter flash and rename the following files - private-multiple-fs and env_vars.
3. Reboot the AP
4. The AP comes back as default. Cisco, Cisco now works again.
5 The file system now looks like this -
2 -rwx 6168
5 -rwx 763
41 drwx 512
7 -rwx 88804
6 -rwx 5144
8 -rwx 65
