Default Source of CC soft rubber control covers?

Can anyone inform me of a source of the 96R CC soft rubber control covers. What years CC button covers will fit a 96?

Thanks,

Glenn

Providing some feedback to members. My CC buttons hardened over the years. I found a VERY cheap CC switches on eBay for $26 inc. shipping. I only needed the buttons so this was perfect for me. See link below.

Hopefully the CC buttons are soft rubber. I will report back to the forum.

Some Forum feedback on the above CC buttons. I received the CC switches and buttons in only a few days from eBay. The setup seemed well made - made in China of course. I was mainly interested in the button covers since mine were dry-up and cracked. The buttons were relatively soft material and pliable. They fit exactly over the switch covers as the OEM. A good solid tight fit. I did notice that the covers are a bit dull compared to the slightly shiny OEM ones - no big deal a dab of Armour-All did the trick on them. A minor point of little significance is the printing on the buttons. It is not quite up to OEM standards, but perfectly acceptable.

The OEM lighted buttons were too bright in my eyes while driving - a bit of a distraction. The new covers the lights are dimmer - but seem better to me - not distracting at all. The covers determine the brightness - i.e. how much light they pass through to the driver.

So for $26 you can replace your complete CC switch/wiring/button assembly and if your like me you are only concerned about your cracked/broken CC button covers these will work just fine.
