280SE Fan switches

I've acquired this jewel with a minor flaw...the four dial switches that control the heater blower and air direction are missing tabs.

Seems like the silver edging might come off easy enough but are those dials tough to replace?

Where could I find some replacements and for how much?

Thanks for your help...

RE: 280SE Fan switches

Assuming that your car is a 4-door, the levers are pretty obnoxious to replace, yes. There is an easier alternative called Duralevers, which you can replace without pulling the dash. Some folks aren't wild about the look and feel of Duralevers, but they seem fine to me. We stock the original replacement levers, and can easily get the Duralevers as well.
