Heater knob fitting



As above the right hand side knob came off in my hand whilst driving, still have the plastic sleeve and spring inside, how does it fit?
Had the car 2 weeks- problem number 1 already!

Will be going straight back to Fiat tommorow if I cant reattach it tonight?
Anyone know how they fit on?

mines "all - electric" , so don't know for sure..,
unless it's the old fashioned "D" shape fitting, then we'll wait for you to let us know what the dealer did

how many miles on the car ?? do you think this may have been previously patched-up..??,

It has 19500 miles. It came off in my hand stupidly easily
Went to Fiat and told them to order in the part. The advisor came back and said the whole panel needs replacing @ estimated cost of 185. I laughed at him and said that I'm not paying after only buying the car on December 14th, Just waiting on the part arriving for a free replacement.

Pain in the a**e but at least it has been sorted with no arguments.
For the time being I've managed to turn it onto the windscreen setting so I can still drive in the morning.
