SIXFORE123. Be very careful pushing on the radio knobs. You will break the circuit board and cause you problems. I have a friend that had the same problem and pushed them on. The volume was messed up after that. He sent to sierra electronics twice (almost $200.00) and in the end bought another radio because they did not fix it. Check inside your new knobs and see if there is not a metal retainer that can be removed.

Actually, a lot of force breaks the wafer on the pot itself. Bad design by Panasonic., and those chrome knobs aren't worth the risk. Besides, they reflect too much to suit me.

Too bad they didn't come up with chrome covers for those that like that kind of stuff. Would've been easy to do. Just stamp them out, and chrome. Then glue them on with some silicone sealer.

Hi Sixfore 123, I bought mine from Cyclemax about a month ago and had the same problem. Take the metal retainer spring inside the button out and place that over the radio "control arms" then put the chrome radio buttons on.Works like a dream and look excellent.:goofygrin:
