Yes they work on the 2013. Mine worked fine. I used pliers to get old ones off

Installed these knobs today. Used a hand towel and a pair of vice grips to remove the OE gear.

Overall, no fuss with removal. The China knobs look better, but they do have a slight amount of wiggle room. May try a wrap of electrical tape in the future to snug them up.

I noticed something interesting earlier this week at the Ford dealership when I took my Focus in for service. As I waited for my loaner car to be prepared I figured I'd take a peek at the new Fusion and Escape that were sitting out in the showroom. (I'm only 20 so sales people leave me alone) The Fusion was gorgeous inside and out as I expected, but lookie what I found in the escape.





Looks like someone at Ford had the same idea you guys had- except that these are stock. Perhaps then this is another option for those of you looking to switch your dials.

Anyone have an idea of finding these parts? I browsed through fordparts for awhile under the Escape but no luck..found every other kind of switch/knob/dial except for these.

Aer0 - I might be interested within a few weeks. I'll PM you once I'm ready, if you run out, no biggie.

Thanks!

I finally got my blue ones installed. I think they look pretty good and should accent nicely the rest of the trim I want to make blue.

Here's some pics:

Ralck, you pictures forced my hand to update my info on eBay and PayPal. I think they are going to look great in the Funkus.
