    Hi all,
    We have recently purchased a 2014 Swift Escape on a Ducato Chassis.
    One of the heater control knobs is missing the Black insert (that tapers down to the point to determine the heating setting).
    Doesn't stop it working but looks c**p !
    Unsurprisingly my local Fiat agent cannot supply the insert, unfortunately he also cannot supply a knob, just the complete panel with both knobs surround etc......£125+vat (Trade).
    Any ideas ?
    (Tried E-bay, Google and Breakeryard).
    Thanks in advance.

    Bit off the wall but you could try one of the 3D printing services which are springing up and see if they can copy the knob you have. Probably best to get two made so they match.

    It is also possible to copy plastic parts, making a mould and using resin. Have a Google.
