TJ - heater/AC - Control Knob

Does anyone have a good source on where to buy the control knobs for the heater/AC, vent position selectors.
My originals broke and the ones that came with the new control motor broke now too. Seems like the plastic and metal insert cant hold up to the still selection positions.
any help is appreciated.
Thanks
JR

Amazon. I just fixed mine with super glue and they held up for years.

If you slow down how quickly you turn the knobs and try not to twist them past the end of their travel, then they wouldn't break. Just food for thought.

I thought the harder and faster you turn them, the colder your AC gets.

Thanks for input!
I think the ones that came w/ my new unit were just cheap.
I'll try the superglue fix too.
