Hope you manage to get a resolve. Maybe you could look for a replacement radio on eBay. I saw one sell for $25 a couple of weeks ago. If it's just a knob you need, it doesn't matter if the radio works or not. Just a thought.
The radio and the knob itself work fine its just the rubber covering around the knob that fell off

Maybe you should stop rubbing your knob so much? Or being rough with it?

His is a 2010, yours is a 2011, his probably has seen more heat than you have yet to see. Give it another summer.

To be fair, my 2011 is one year old, so it weathered the rest of the summer from July last year, and then this year, we had 40 days in a row of temps well over 100°F... just saying!

That's why I just said probably.... This could actually be his 3rd summer, but I don't know that as a fact.

My car is a 2010 so its gone threw a couple of summers.I keep up with the interior I've always been careful when using the knob.I never said that the heat was the cause of this.The guy at the dealer just came to the logical conclusion that it mite have been the heat.

Going to look for a wrecked camaro isn't a bad idea actually I mite go do that!

You shouldn't play with your knob so much...next thing you'll be telling us that you're growing hair in your palms and that your eyesight is going bad. Now your DIC...well that's a whole other story...it's designed to be played with and has multiple options when properly manipulated.

Posted in another thread, I have the same problem. Just curious if you were able to pull off the covering from a wrecked Camaro, if that worked?

I am not sure what to do, but agree it looks awful.

Was your dealership able to address the volume knob issue for you? Please let us know if you get a new Camaro!

I've had my radio replaced TWICE... And it's going to happen AGAIN before the end of the summer. The volume knob is made differently than the other knob. Not sure why it rubs off and wears loose. Sure is annoying.
