My 02 escapes hvac control knob (2) have broken at there attachment point. I tried gorrilla gluing them and then reinforcing them with a zip tie but only to break again a few months later. i heard that this is common for 01-02s, does any one know if there is a company that makes better knobs like billet or something. i do know the escape doesn't share its knobs with other ford trucks like the ranger i have a ranger and tried them (there tons of companies that make them for them and mustangs)

thanks

Ford's replacement knob is $6.97 as of this morning. This was only a problem on early (2001 and some 2002) Escapes, and the replacement knob has been redesigned with a stronger shank.

I had one break on my 02. The dealership replaced it under warranty. Since then I've just been more careful turning the knobs and I've been OK (knock on wood)
