Nissan Connect 2 Power / volume knob - Broken

Recommended Posts

B0M0A0K   

Hi All,

Does anyone know if it's possible to get a replacement volume/on/off knob for the Nissan Connect 2 system (as fitted to my 2013 Nissan Juke 1.6 N-Tec). I jumped in the car the other day and and the on/off/volume knob came away in my hand.

I have seen suggestions that you won't get a replacement without buying the entire front facia of the Nissan Connect 2 (megabucks!) but there has to be a more economical alternative. I have also been trying to identify the part number of the knob in question, so far I think it's one of the following, is there anyone here with a better understanding of parts and part numbers please?

Manufacturer: Nissan
Part Number: 28044-2B500
Part: Radio Knob
Replaces: 28044-08000, 28044-1E400, 28044-0P000

Not sure about where to source a new button but can you post up a picture of the broken one so we can see if there is a fix you can do

Hi Trevor, thanks for taking the time to reply. I have the knob at home for safekeeping while I investigate my options. The obvious thing to do would be to try and glue the knob back in place, but a close inspection of the break shows a shiny surface at the break, that usually suggests it has been broken and glue'd by the previous owner (or repair shop). I will try and post something later today :smile:

Sorry for the delay in uploading these, just spent a day taking the crappiest photos I have ever taken :blush: As promised, here are photos of the broken power/volume knob.

Maybe worth roughing up the edges slightly with sandpaper to key it up and then try something like Araldite

Hi Trevor, thanks again for taking the time to reply. I'm a little skittish about using something like Araldite or "superglue" because they set rigid and have no flexibility, which I think could be a problem. My biggest issue right now is that I need to remove the remaining plastic from the metal spine on the power/volume knob. I had thought I could just use a dentists tool to hook in behind the plastic and pull it off that way, but it seems to need an abnormal amount of force to pull it off and I am starting to think that when it was repair by the previous owner glue made it's way onto the splined surface and it's glued in place.

I was going to post more photos, but I think I've used up my limit.

Not sure if you can use a bent screwdriver tip and some pliers to extract it as it should be on a detent which stops it from pulling out ordinarily. Just needs a little bit more force I'd say.

You could delete out the previous photos and use compression software for all new ones, that should solve the issue
