Sand paper fingers huh I should have used that as my name not nitro. It looks bad because its almost as if it melted. I pulled on it and it was about to tear off. So I stopped I pulled it all apart and took some pics.
Bottom line the new knob is not the same and will not fit correctly.
Don't know why it calls for part 65 12 6 923 294 it's to short.
