    Melting volume control knob

    I am not sure why or what happened to the radio knobs, they are just falling to pieces when I touch them. More importantly, how do I get them off and find a new pair?

    I have looked around online and these things seem to be commodity.

    I go the knobs off the radio. They are deep, which makes them difficult to get to. I use a plastic spoon and got in behind it and they popped right off.
    With a little soap and hot water the sticky melting rubber comes off easy. I guess in worst case I have to reuse them as is if I can't find replacements that fit.

    Hi,

    I tried to find them brand new but I have not see any. You can try Goldwing Saab, they have many used parts and they ship fast.

    Thanks Wulf but will not fit my radio according to the list on their site. I have an 06 Aero convertible.

    Their list is wrong. All MY03-MY06 9-3 body styles have the same head units. The new interior started with MY07 so eEuro shouldn't have included those in their list.
