06 HVAC Cluster Confusion

Does anyone know the difference between the two HVAC switch clusters for the TJ? I have the fan speed issue which I'm sure is the resistor pack and was planning to replace that when the right side rotary selector switch started to give me issues. Doing an internet search I've found two different clusters stated to fit my TJ part#'s 550565589AB ($437) and 550-56559AB ($141). I haven't pulled it yet but think I only need the rotary switch if available but would have spent $141.
Anybody have experience with this issue?
Thanks

What's the specific issue with the rotary switch? Have you pulled the knob off and checked to see if it's hub is split.

A common problem is the plastic hub that fits over the D shaped shaft splits and the knob doesn't work correctly. Super glue and a zip tie is a simple fix.

I am multi-talented, I can talk and piss you off at the same time.

Thanks for the quick reply. No I didn't check that but will. The knob felt loose and was not selecting certain positions. Whe you say hub do you mean the hub itself (a broken knob) or part of the switch itself?
thanks again

2jhanna,
You are the man!
This is the 2nd TJ I've owned, had an 03 for about 5 years and this one almost 3 and thought I've experienced most of the common issues. It's my daily commuter vehicle which I may not need a year from now and not really sure if I'll keep it so saving any costly and un-needed repairs is a home run!
Thanks again,
Frankie V

So I take it, it was the knob?

If so, you can get new knobs, but if all the pieces are there, I used a couple drops of super glue, and a very small zip tie around the outside of the hub. And this fix had lasted me for years, and still counting.
