Angry Seat control switch

My lovely wife denied she broke this seat control switch which is on her side. The control knob broke off from the switch.
Anyone had done this b4 ? Is it the whole switch needed to be replaced or can be done just the knob itself ?
Much appreciated for any help.

Here is the part page. Looks like you have to replace the whole thing...its not unbearably expensive though. Just make sure you get the right one, there are multiple parts for both differnt seating packages the car came with, and left/right.

Thank you, amg142 and GrantWC for the responses. Much much appreciated.

TechFreak, that's an amazing instructions there, Buddy. Thank you so much.

This seems to be that I can just replace the knob itself, but I am afraid they don't make it replaceable piece by piece like that.
Now what I saw in that instruction that interests me is the front monitor being able to connect to PC Windows like that. I am gonna try to find out some more info on it.

This guy is a genuine Genius...lol He opens up everything in front of him.

Thanks again guys.
