Question about 1996 Toyota Camry
They are similar knobs with a semi-circle opening to fit on the post in the dash. Toyota no longer carries them. Other than going to a wrecking yard, is there any place I can get replacements? I am tired of using a pair of pliers to adjust!
No, your either going to have to get this from a salvage yard or you can check ebay to see if you can find it.

You have a broken wire connection between the temperature control knob and the circuit board behind the center dash console. Vibration causes the failure and once the control knob gets loose the solder connection fails.
For someone that knows how to remove the dash unit and can re-solder a couple of new wires this fix should take no more than 1 hour. Make sure that you apply loctite to the heat control knob spindle nut when you re-assemble it.
The dealer quoted me 750 dollars to fix this issue and I found out that it's a common failure for this year. I fixed mine virtually for free but it took some tools and about an hour of my time.

the nut that holds the middle knob has come loose and caused a wire behind it to break. I found a website back a couple of years ago that showed me in detail how fix. It can be repaired with a $7 soldering iron! I don't know where the website is now but search "toyota highlander blows hot and cold air" and you might be able to find fix. Don't let dealership replace with $600 control panel. It's a simple fix. Good luck.

You need to remove complete front dash panel, where are the knobs. First start with the radio cover, after go gently through the all screws, which holds the dash panel. Don't worry, the Toyota plastic material is very good processed and is strong but elastic. Yes after dismounting it will look like You will be scared, but step by step You will finish it good.

Check the ground cable going from the battery to
alternator, then to chassis. Make sure there is no
rust at the chassis ground wire terminal, and that it
is very tight. The fusible link will be off the alternator
red power cable,usually, but not 100% on that car.
