Anybody got any of the knobs that go on the Monsoon radio they want to part with?
Looking for 6 total but will take whatever is available.

I ordered one from ECS when the one in my wagon started to melt.

I'm sure I can snag a few from the local yard. No guarantees. I am working like mad to ready the house for sale and might not get out to do it.

If you just happen to end up in a salvage yard, sure I'll bite on that.
Don't go out of your way on my account though.
I really wish I could do the same down here but B5 / B5.5 era Passat's are a rare animal down in these parts.
I think I've seen maybe about (8) B5's in the last 3 years I've been here. Lot's of newer Passat platforms though... but that's not helping me out.

If you just need the knobs I will check to see what is left in the parts car. Radio is there and is a monsoon but might be missing knob or 2. Anything else you need?

Nope just knobs - the small ones.

Well, wait a minute...
What is this parts car you speak of?
Year? Sedan or wagon? Manual or tip?
Maybe you have something I didn't know I needed... ;)

Small knobs on the radio? My Monsoon only had the 2 medium knobs (IIRC). The Golf has multiple small knobs for bass, fader, balance, etc...

I didn't have a double-din or a B5.5, so I never noticed them. My son's 01.5 B5.5 has a single din. My younger son's 05 Golf has a radio like that.

Word of advice for the unwary when removing the small knobs.

Often the little metal spacer that goes between the knob and the shaft will stay on the shaft when you pull the knob off.

The little metal spacer is needed in order for that knob to fit onto another shaft, so take some time and inspect that when you have pulled all the knobs off you haven't left any spacers behind.
