Replacing the Seat Heater + Cooling Switch

The black knob broke on my 2014 Limited driver's side seat heat/cool switch. Does anyone have suggestions on where I might find a replacement knob?

I'd hate to have to replace the whole freakin' unit...found this one on eBay for over $300: 14- 17 TOYOTA 4RUNNER LIMITED FRONT LEFT RIGHT SIDE HEATED SEAT SWITCH NEW 35010 | eBay.

Dang. Cant help with the replacement but I feel for you. Howd it break if you dont mind me asking? Did it just twist off in your hand?

Id imagine you could find a replacement unit from an auto salvage for a decent price. Perhaps call around?

What are the knob dimensions? Looks like a fairly standard knob. Try finding another knob with similar or smaller dimensions. Will not match, but that's up to you. For example this one is 1inx1inx1in. Might be too big but I don't own a limited so I don't know:

Replacement knob for Pro-PZFI or PG and Pro style controls - VariZoom - Camera Products

Hi thatoneguy,

Why not just look on ebay; not for temperature control knobs... but like..., car head-unit knobs; w/"D-shaped" potentiometer shanks(?)! I've done it and it worked out beautifully... only cost cents on the dollar:

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...aometer+shanks

You will find a match if you look through the many options! 'Best to you',
