Attention:Before Starting, read both sets of instructions below and decide which method you would like to use to install your new climate control knobs. Both methods will achieve the same result, and although method #1 is much quicker, it is more difficult to make sure all plastic is removed properly prior to installation of the new control knobs which is important for proper reassembly and function of new Tru-Billet knobs.
Also be aware that the OEM did not design the climate control on 07 models to be field-serviced, and extra care must be taken to insure no damage to unit results during this procedure. Although SilverHorse Racing has tested both procedures with complete success, we are not liable for any damage you may cause to your vehicle while attempting this installation. These instructions should be considered a guide only, and are not written as a replacement for OEM techniques and instructions for vehicle service.
1. With the vehicle off, in park or neutral and with the parking brake set on a flat, level surface, begin by turning all three controls to the 12 o’clock position. Grasp the knobs firmly one at a time with pliers, and pull straight away from the head unit, being careful to not dislodge the shifter or accidentally release the emergency brake. This will break the outer half of the knob away from the inner half, and does require some force. Slight wiggling from left to right may aid in removal. Discard the outer half of the knob after inspecting to see how much plastic remained in the climate control unit. Look at image below to see a broken knob vs. unbroken to see where the breaks will occur. Broken piece is on the right.
