I did the same on the first one i removed, ripped the rubber on the grip and got a nasty skin pinch in the progress hence the screwdriver idea.
They are worth the effort though ain't they. :)

Hi mate,
chinese engalish very bad, so ebay listing hard find due to not spell properly,

or have same term of speach as we do the only down side to their sales is their english isint very good,
so that leaves their ebay listings very difficult to search for and find, but here you go.

Shame that no-one does these type of dials for the MK1 Focus. These won't fit the MK1 Focus as the MK1 has two smaller knobs and a larger one, rather than three the same size.

I am wondering if a set for a Suzuki SX4 will fit on our little Suzuki Alto

Really liking these.... do you just simply push the new ones in by hand? also (may be a stupid question) but why use a pliers if you just "lightly pull", couldnt you do this with your hand? Thanks.

If you use pliers you tend to rip the rubber on the original dials even if you use a cloth.
I used a wide blade screwdriver to lever the dials off (under the side where the grip is widest.)
All you are really doing is releasing the grip from the split metal spring band around the spindles.

Thanks I'll try it like that first... I'll just take it easy!

Only two ways to find out for sure lol
1. Go to local breakers and purchase a heater control knob from a focus 2005-2010
Try fit it to your climate control socket, if it fits then refer to option two

2. Purchase a set and try the fitment.
