Hey guys i bought a replacement knob for the heater control in the back seat i paid $30 for it a while back not to happy that a peice of plastic cost that much. But it keeps falling off! Is there anyway of putting it on without it falling off?


Thanks

I'm sure there is, but without knowing how it is held on in the first place I'm clueless. Someone more familiar with it will chime in. Otherwise a picture would help.
Yep i'll take a photo tomorrow it seems that it interlocks with a metal piece that stick out of the center consle.

Thanks Ranger

If it's the typical knob falling off problem, either elmers glue or small piece of masking tape. That way you can remove it again. Just want something to snug it up a bit. Don't think I would use super glue(or at least not the good stuff).

My Seville's knob is missing, just like many other used Sevilles! If you don't want to be one of us, use a very strong glue. This is apparently a design fault!

Yea when i bought the car it was missing so i hated seeing it missing so i bit the bullet and paid $30 for it. The dealer wanted me to replace the whole center peace and that would have cost me $160. Another piece that is missing is the inner wheel well plastic there's a nice chunk missing from it.
