Default Loose knob on manual climate control

As you know the manual climate control has 3 knobs, One of knobs in my ram is loose while other two are solid and not loose. How do I fix it? I tried to pull the knob out and it wouldn't budge.

Any suggestion?

It's a new truck right? Take it to Dodge! You break it - You bought it.

Yeah, It's new, I bought it 3 weeks ago. I didn't force to pull it, just gentle enough. Since I know common knobs can be removed.

Hey Measel...

Wondering what happened on this for you?

I had the same complaint on my '12 (fan knob) and I was told this via email about my complaint from the service manager:

"After checking other Rams I would say it is normal, but when we first checked yours I would of agreed that it was loose. After making a call they are designed to have a loose feeling to them to prevent premature breakage. Sorry we did not know that they are designed that way. "

I havent had the chance to compare to other new Rams yet.

I had the same issue, Took in in and SA ordered a new one...The knob ( left one for the fan) was still "loose" on the new one. They went and checked about 5 more on the lot and they were all the same...

I am not going to push it unless it breaks off.

Hmm.

So it is just poor design I guess after all?

Bummer.

No big deal I guess unless it actually breaks....provided it doesn't happen the day after the warranty runs out...LOL

Same thing here, loose fan knob. I just thought it was because it was built on a monday.
