Decided to replace rear struts at same time and get a 4 wheel alignment. I want to be able to see all steps at once and go at my speed. Very disappointed in Toyota, since the engine has to be removed to replace the pump! The tires were also specifically designed to reduce noise and improve both wet and dry braking for added safety. It appeared to be ok, but one year later during another wind storm it was blown again and would not shut properly. Maybe there is a difference, but I have no idea what it could be.

The climate control knob on my Toyota Highlander Hybrid snapped off recently. This part slips nicely between the knob and the attachment point, making everything work perfectly again. It works even better if you save the little metal piece that holds onto the rod from inside the old, broken part. If you are working with something slow setting, getting it on the threads when you put the nuts on would be a good idea but totally overkill for a volume knob.

Anyway, I ended up redesigning a new piece in Fusion 360 and 3D-printing and reinstalling the knob. Mark Oct 20, 2009 The nut that holds the middle knob has gotten loose and the knob which is probably loose has caused a wire behind it to break. It seemed like everything we did caused the lights to come on as a waring for our tires. Look at the small nut around the shaft the knob came off of. Outer pads wore very thin, were nearly gone, needed replacement, while inner pads looked nearly new.
Well when I bought the car in Feb, the radio's volume knob was missing. Your temp will work normally now. Although I own a highlander now, my next car will be the Prius.
