Radio knob...

Postby metaxa44 » Tue Feb 26, 2013 11:36 am

Well it is my time for broken radio knob after 4 years...
The radio knob is getting loose and by reading the forum , I am not the only one with this problem ...
It is actually pretty common problem on 09 /10 Vibes and Toyota...
I am thinking to do the metod with out removing the radio and shave the new knob ...
Where is the best place to get the knob , or is there any other knobs fit???

Open to GOOD IDEAS , and help...

Thanks...

Here is a good thread about replacing the knobs;

I bought mine on eBay. The prices seem to be fairly consistent wherever you buy them. Buy two, even though one was working fine when I opened the radio I found one broken and the other cracked.

I suggest that you fill the new knobs with epoxy before replacing and you shouldn't need to do it again.
