MMI Out?

Hey people, here's either a really dumb question, or a very common one. forgive me for my ignorance. The knob in my 7 that controls the MMI, what is that called first of all? Secondly, mine has stop working, it spins freely, nor do i get any action when i put down on it. What is that about? Lastly, does anybody have a price range to repair, and is there anyone local in SoCal that does that type of work? My indy said he would look at it, he could picture it over the phone, and im at work till friday, cant get car to him before then. Thanks in advance for your help.

You can get one on eBay. It's called an I-drive control knob. Not that hard to replace.

CD/DVD player works when I pop in a cd. But i can't get into any screens. It's stuck on the warning restraint screen.
