Step 1. Remove Old Climate Control Knobs

To do this, you simply get a good grip on the climate knob and pull straight back. It does take a bit of force, so don’t worry about breaking something. Just give it a good backward tug and the knob will come right off.

Step 2. Swap Out Red Indicator To New Knobs

Pull the red indicator out of the old climate control knob and put it in the new AJT climate control knob.

One thing to note is that the center “AC” knob has a different indicator than the other two knobs, so keep this indicator separate from the others.

Step 3. Align & Secure Control Knob Into Place

After putting the red indicator into your new climate control knobs, simply align the control knob where it should go and push it on.

This is all there is to it! Simply do this process for all three knobs and you are good to go!

After reading this I bought some and just installed them. Thank you! Got tired of the dab, boring gray.

They don’t fit the limited 4Runner. Every other 4Runner, they fit.

Installed the Red knobs/screws a couple of days ago, my .02 follows. With the red knobs, the indicator tab can be a little difficult to distinguish during the day.
