Default broken climate control knob

I broke one of my climate control knobs in my car...specifically the fan one.
Do I have to replace the whole unit now or is there somewhere I can buy just the knob.

This might be a stupid question but I've been looking online for like an hour now and can't find anything.

Just get a small pair of vice grips to clamp onto the metal stub sticking through the dash. They make both brushed silver and chrome vice grips to match any decor.

Go to weller self serve auto parts on chicago drive in GR or lkq self serve auto in moline. If you cant find a 05 cobalt look at other GM products. It will cost $2 to get in the door and they will most likely charge nothing for one knob.
