Just to be clear, this Climate Control Knob Mount for 2008-2013 Toyota Highlander fixes the inside of the knob for the TEMPERATURE / CLIMATE CONTROL KNOBS. This will not address the broken radio knob. Anyway, I ended up redesigning a new piece in Fusion 360 and 3D-printing and and reinstalling the knob. It works PERFECTLY and is way stronger than the original.
This is a replacement Climate Control Knob Mount for 2008-2013 Toyota Highlander temperature control.
***IMPORTANT*** Be sure to put that little D-shaped metal sleeve that goes around the knob post (that was inside the white, broken piece) into this 3D-printed piece. That will help ensure it works well for you and will actually turn the knob post thing. After inserting the metal sleeve, just slide it onto the post, then attach the knob to it.
Item ships via USPS First Class Mail to save on shipping, but there is an option for Priority if you care to go that route.

I assumed it would be identical to the oem but realized it was not and was thankful it was not due to I would have had to take the whole front panel off that is why Toyota wants a $1000.00 to repair more like replace. The only thing that was very little discouraging was it slides on the post only but I’ll say it looks original and works thumbs up. Thanks
Worked as promised. I hadn’t kept my original knob’s metal sleeve, but improvised. Thanks.
Works perfect. Installed in a couple minutes , no removing dash ect ,
Saved $1,100 compared to what dealership wanted
It works great and it is stronger than the original and it is not necessary to remove the dashboard.
