Help: Broken Cruise Control Button

Hi,
I have had a little accident, broken the Res/Coast button off from the steering wheel, anyone know if these can be replaced/repaired, how do I replace if this can be done?

Thanks,

Baz

thanks xts220,
Reversing & Turning towards trailer and sort of scraped the button forward with my little finger, broke off one of the tiny little tabs that hold the button in, swore like a trooper.

Re: Help: Broken Cruise Control Button

The worst part is that the parts are now made by Ford.They were originally sourced from another supplier but they stopped manufacturing them(approx $80),now Ford manufacture them and they've more than doubled in price.

It might well be worth going to a junk yard or something and seeing if you can find the bits there and do it yourself.

Re: Help: Broken Cruise Control Button

Hardest part changing yourself is getting hold of the tool to undo airbag part of wheel
And dont forget to disconnect battery before you start
It probably takes about 5 min to do

Re: Help: Broken Cruise Control Button

if you get a new one, they come as the three button set.. my stereo controls cost about $150 or so and that was 18 months ago...

Re: Help: Broken Cruise Control Button

Thanks to all who posted, did try ford spare parts who told me it only came as both sections - cruise control + audio and quoted $208. Wreckers/junk yard would be an option, but where I live there is a very limited selection, did think of ringing around the Melbourne wreckers. In the end I did a repair job with the super-glue (not shure how permenent this will be, but almost 1 week now and still o.k.) it was a very delicate operation (should have been a brain surgeon!!!) thanks russelw for the part number and price, if the repair doesn't last I will now be armed with the right info.
