Correct Jason!  Hand Shake .......... I'm gonna have to take a "fire road" to the parts store...  bounce 

I was preparing to clear snow from the driveway.. and as usual; I back the vehicle up an incline onto the grass. So I let it roll slowly down the driveway in neutral while shifting the transfer case (2005 Chevy Trailblazer) and in the process; the selector knob crunched..  Shocked and came off in my hand..

I suppose I could try to glue it back on... any suggestions on what to use? I have just about all types of glue on hand.. but it has to cure in freezing temps... so I'm thinking epoxy or CA gel might be best.

CA or Epoxy will eventually fail. Probably sooner than later. If it were me I would manipulate the lever and detent to switch it into 2H then go buy a new part.

Exact same thing happened to the AC dial in our van yesterday. We used a pair of needle nose pliers to turn it back to "0".

CA will work if you wrap thread on the outside to help add strength. It will prevent the piece that broke out from breaking again. That is if you have enough clearance for the added diameter.

I think I will try that, thanks.

Thanks Jason, that would probably work if the knobs' shaft-housing had split-open... but mine broke at an angle, (see photo) with a piece still attached to the switch... inside the panel.

I may have to try what Matt did.. and see if I can turn the switch's shaft back to the 2H position with needle-nose pliers.

There are probably lots of  replacement knobs in parts yards but, being for Chevys, their knobs are probably broken too.
