Default 603 door lock knob broken...

603 door knob.jpg

This driver side door lock knob keeps falling off...appears that it might be broken in the recessed area, but I can't say for sure.

Any one have one for sale?

Any suggestions as to make this stay on, short of glueing?

Small sprung strip of metal missing - compare with the other side.

Thanks, Phillip and Greg.

I was trying to avoid pulling the passenger side knob, to avoid creating problems there. I think this one was broken when the arm rest was taken off for re-upholstering.

I was thinking of using some sort of tacky material to stick it on with.

Greg, you interested in selling me your extra?

I can send you a Barclays Bank check to cover the cost and shipping, if you are.

Lou.

I've worked out a solution, literally, in every sense of the word(s), a stop-gap, using some tacky putty my wife uses to hang her miniatures paintings on a wall. Holds things very well, releases immediately when needs must. Doesn't dry out.

No need for another knob, but thanks.

I have two spare ones that have dug out from the pile of bits and bobs. Let me know if you need one when the putty fails :-)

Thank you, Will.

My jury rig is doing just fine.
