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.

Using blankets and not fixing it due to high mileage. Cold but my Honda's still going!!!
My fan speed knob broke. Still need the part. Currently using pliers. They work fine though.

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.

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 !!

Both temperature knobs break off easily after time; didn't take a week after the temp knob broke for the fan speed knob to break off as well. Just go to a junkyard and find some that aren't broke.

I bought it used. Bought a replacement knob and super glue.
