2005 HVAC Knobs

Unless someone else has done it and not broken anything.....

The 2005 HVAC knobs DO NOT pull right off.

I was trying to do the SVT HVAC swap (you gotta take the knobs off), and I broke the temperature knob off earlier today

First I tried pulling with my hands....no luck
Then I tried the pliers and had a towel wrapped around them(and it still messed up the rubber on the knob)...no luck
Then I tried a screwdriver to try and pry it...no luck.
Then I tried pulling the control in the back of the controls and that didn't work either.

Then the pliers ended up breaking 1/2 the knob off.

So my plan is to try and find a earlier Focus's HVAC controls (where I know the knobs come off) and then do the SVT HVAC swap

I did the HVAC swap on my '05 ST, and they pulled off.

It was damned hard, but they came off.

I had to use a pair of pliers and a rag, and yank straight back.

Your pic is with stock knobs. Do you have one with the new ones installed ?

Sorry, no, I kept the stock knobs. The SVT HVAC bezel is what was changed. I was illustrating that it is possible to remove the stock '05 ones without ruining/breaking them.

I bought the bezel through Steeda, I couldn't find it anywhere cheaper in Canada, although some say that the dealer sells them cheaper than the $65USD the dealer here wanted.

And yes, those are SVT pedals, I got them through eBay for about $65 brand new, cheaper than the $250 CDN that the dealer wanted.

$36 USD; I'm not sure what the shipping would be to you, I ordered it along with my sill plates and short ram, and then picked it up locally at the Steeda.ca store.
