Broken Instrument Cluster Clock Knob - Easy to replace?

The clock knob on my instrument cluster broke off and I need to replace it. Is this a relatively easy task to take on in the garage? Anyone have details on how to do this? I searched but could not find anything. Thanks for the help!

I did the same thing wiping down my interior. 1 drop of superglue and the post that broke off fixed it.

Actually, to fix it correctly is a simple drop in. The hard part is that you need to take the instruments out, only about a 30 min job.

The trick is the hidden torx head screws. On the left is a fake little microphone cap, on the right is a the emergency flasher switch. Pop them both out and you'll find the torx head screws. Remove them. The whole pod comes out. you'll be styling

From there, disassemble as needed....no brainer Oh ya, there are three color-coded plugs, tricky latches but you can not mix them up.

"assembly is reverse"

Regards, PK
