Winshield wiper switch

I am having trouble finding a knob that fits my wiper switch and was wondering if you guys had any answers.


The switch has a hexagon shaped place where the knob sets and then a longer post sticking out the middle (washer switch?)


My switch looks like this one...




The knobs I ordered do not work and only have a hole with a spring steel type locking thingie on it to lock it onto the shaft (make any sense?)


Does anyone know what knob fits this type switch and maybe where I could get one?


Oh, it's a 1974 Cherokee.....

I think you need the older chrome knob that was held on with a screw. I don't think you can buy a new one you'll need to find a used one.

Would it be hard to upgrade to a newer switch maybe?


If not does anyone have the old knob they want to part with?

I bought a new switch from LMC truck.
Just the switch thy might have the knob also.
It was listed for late 60's pickup

The wiper system is a GM

The knob that your jeep uses has a center button that pushes in the washer switch portion of the wiper switch assembly to activate the pump.
In late 1975 they changed the switch and knob to a "one-piece". The switch no longer had the button in the middle to activate the washer pump.
