Replaced temperature knob several times until the shaft actually broke. Needs new unit to fix. Have not done it yet, requires removing nearly the whole dashboard from what I was told.
My fan speed knob broke. Still need the part. Currently using pliers. They work fine though.

heater temperature knob spins freely, heat stuck on full. Not fixed yet - does the whole dashboard have to come off?

when your heater control knob breaks,, go to the parts store and find a hose clamp the same size and put it on the back of the know where it sticks out.. fixed !!

Temperature gauge broke off when using it. I had to go to a honda dealership to buy a new one. Reason it broke off was because of the tension in the knob.
