A/C / Climate Control Replacement Knobs - Where to get them??

I am looking for some replacement climate control knobs for my 02 Wrangler. The knob that changes the direction/AC broke off this past winter and I'd like to replace them all.

I looked around online pretty extensively and found some offered by some Jeep parts/4x4 websites, but they all seemed to be silver/metallic finishes. I am looking for replacement knobs that are BLACK. Anyone know of any good websites that I can look into for these??

I thought about ordering some OEM replacement knobs from the dealer but I am sure they'll be more expensive than some I can find online.

Thanks!!

When mine crapped out the only place I could find them was the dealer. Cost me like 15 bucks for all three of them bastards.

How the heck do you break them ????? NO, never mind I don't want to know, thats why they rent rooms and why tops come off of wranglers so you can use the sound bar roll cage...

They're cheap from the dealer.

They are plastic on a metal stud. After awhile they just give out. The replacements I got from the dealer had a metal sleeve inside of it to keep it from breaking again.

Go to the junkyard... If they are like mine you can get the entire control panel with the knobs for $5... My problem is finding a Wrangler, however the knobs on the XJ are the same and there are tons of them, maybe even the whole control panel is the same.

It's a 1/4" shaft. Most radio knobs will fit. Look in Radio Shack, google chicken head knobs.

I've replaced two of the three at least twice, (control and fan speed) over the last 11 years, same problem every time, cracked around the metal band within the knob.

Dealer is where I go and last time I bought I was able to get the pair for a few bucks each.
