Climate Control Rubber/Plastic switches

A quick question, is it possible to source just he 3 rubber/plastic controls for the Aircon unit.
Local Land rover dealerships and independents say its a whole new unit at $1500 Australian.
All i need is the outer rubber/plastic parts that you use to control the air flow/air con speed
and the individual temperature controls.. all three seem to be melting/softening, solvent
contamination maybe

In my 2010 TDV8 the temperature display started to deteriorate. The whole unit - read everything had to be replaced.

I’ve seen pressed stainless knobs that are shaped the same as the knob, they slide over the top of the rubber. They look good but I did see they obscure the marking around the outside i.e. the red and blue on the temp one. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

Fitted some of those to mine, they are actually plastic, thought they blended in well with rest of silver parts to give it a bit of contrast, didn't bother about red and blue scale being covered as has led read out anyway. Fitted them on rear vents as well for a bit of contrast.

China Jim where else, Rolling with laughter

They are actually plastic but the quality is pretty good and fit well enough. Say's Disco 4 but fit Sport as well, delivered to NZ o.k.

That’s them, they look better than I thought. I didn’t realise they were plastic but if the quality is there then that’s fine. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

New Zealand 2013 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Autobiography Santorini Black

Mine quoted several weeks but only took a week or so, inside the cover is a ring of 3M VHB tape just peel of backing tape, they virtually locate themselves on existing knob and press down lightly to stick in place, I actually took the knob off and stuck the cover on first then pushed knobs back onto panel as didn't want to apply to much pressure to the switch panel. On the larger temp control one's I actually fitted a extra ring of tape first to raise height a small amount, as I found one of them rubbed very slightly on the panel in one position which having slight OCD annoyed me Laughing probably pot-luck really as only one did it.

Cheers
Col
