Broken Heater Knob

Hey guys -14 degrees up here in NY and just my luck the back of the heater knob broke. I tried to look it up on JCwhitney, but i'm not sure what to actually search. If anyone has a link to it, again i need just the knob. Even a part number would be perfect.

that seems a little high, it was just the first thing that came up on google. I am just assuming that will fit yours. This happened to me as well and I just used a pair of needle nose. If it is -14 degrees up there I am going to guess that you will only need one setting so no going back and forth...

Might want to fully upgrade those knobs. Mine broke 4 times before I upgraded to billet aluminum.



Not too cheap, but they should never break again...

Rugged Ridge from Amazon

Amazon.com: Climate Control Knob: Automotive

if that link doesn't work search "wrangler heater knob". Actually I've got a spare if you want it $5 out the door and pm me your address. I can probably ship it to you this afternoon.

Just swap broken one with another,assuming you only need heat until spring. Still a ten dollar fix sometime.

Here's the cheapest place I've found to get them by far. Only $2.99 each I just ordered three.

I epoxied mine back together when this happened to me. Before that I was using pliers to adjust my heat haha

When mine does break again I'll find this thread and the links here very useful

So glad I found this thread. I think this is exactly what happened to mine. Now to further investigate. Thankfully I moved AWAY from cold New York and down to Tennessee... but I'd like to have the option to turn it OFF sometime ya know?

Hoping to be posting more often. Thanks!
