Radio Volume button broken

The button for the radio volume on my 2007 fiat grande punto radio is broken.

I cant seem to find anywhere online that sells these.

Could someone please send me a link for where i can buy one of these buttons.

I dont want to buy a new radio.

Someone else had this problem on a different thread but there was no definative answer of where to get one.

It is part of the standard blaupunkt radio.

Thanks in advance

Re: Radio Volume button broken

I dont think the button will be available on its own, I certainly haven't ever seen one for sale. Your best bet would be asking your local dealer if they can source it for you or cheap local scrap yards

Are you sure the button is repairable too? There may be more damage inside the headunit

Any idea how it happened?

Re: Radio Volume button broken

its not that its not working..its just the plastic thing that holds button on broke..all i have at the moment is a bit of metal which the button connects to the radio...i just need a new plastic knob bit for it to work again

Re: Radio Volume button broken

Exact same as me mate, only bought the car the week end and thats the only fault haha...missing the plastic circle covering to turn on/off and volume, just the gold bit of metal there waiting for the button to be put back on it. Any links to buy one/any people here with any spare please give us a shout. Cheers!

Re: Radio Volume button broken

I think it's highly unlikely that you'll find a direct replacement. You might be lucky, and the main dealers might (but i doubt it), have it listed as a part.

Alternatively

http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_od...+knob&_sacat=0 might come up with something.

What about glue ??

Re: Radio Volume button broken

Re: Radio Volume button broken

I'd imagine it would, dont know the exact dimensions of the button or connector though, it would also be nice to have the OEM part :/
