Update...dealer says you have to replace whole face plate of radio which is almost 400 bucks. Service manager agreed to let me pay a copay of $100 to replace it (parts and labor, and yes I'm past the bumper to bumper). Might take them up on this...

I am sorry to hear of this concern! Have you been able to contact your dealership to see if this is something that is covered under warranty? Please let me know any details!

Yeah but I'm outside of the 36k bumper to bumper. Surprised you can't get those knobs separately...

I have the exact same issue, just the little rubber cover on the front fell off and I am outside my bumper to bumper as well. I was told the same thing, the dealer had to replace the whole unit. If anyone comes across an easy (cheap ) solution to this, I would love to hear it!

You can order ones online, but I've only seen "Custom" kits that are often hideous (infernal orange) or chrome. Mine fell off after being slowly ripped off by my car's previous owner. But it is a more common than you think, my friend just posted a photo of his interior on instagram and his didn't have the rubber knob either.

The best replacement kit were a "complete" chrome set on ebay and other places from $90-$120


Took me a while, but found this, the knobs alone ($32.95) which is still not appealing:

The volume knob is still on mine, but the rubber around it came off at CFest. Pretty sure heat was a major contributor. I'm still under my bumper to bumper though. Going to ask dealer at next oil change.

does it look like this?



It is a very loose fit now. It comes off when you change the volume.

Super glue (Ghettoizing) is not the answer. It feels mushy compared to the other firm knob. It will never fit the same. This will start to happen to everyone at some point and someone will find out how to do it correctly.


... or aftermarket will make a cool new (and better) knob that will fit in its place.

They make them already, here's the link. I've seen them in other online stores in various colors, but not sure where.

That billet piece fits over the rubber. The rubber is bad, so that won't work.
