Best post a picture Anthony. I've seen black and larger chrome style knobs on Radiomobile 108SRs.

Is it one like this Tony?

I suspect you'll need to buy another unit to get one (unless someone has one lying around) - as these seem to be the first thing that breaks, cosmetically. And you often only find out when you take the front off to fit it to your car :oops:

Ahh... I need knobs for mine as well - same model!

There is one on ebay at the moment for 50quid, but not sure I want to pay that much just to get my hands on a couple of bits of plastic!

I've sold a couple of 8 tracks from my collection recently. They weren't cheap, partly because you have to cannibalise a number of them to get a good looking one. I think I had 6 and ended up with 3. And that was before testing whether they worked!

Take care getting the knob off if you buy one for spares.

Hi Tony

I have a spare black knob you can have. It's the same as those in the picture. PM me your address and I'll send it to you.
