    I'm trying to remove my gauge bezel and those pesky knobs (windshield wiper and headlights) are in the way. Does anyone know how to remove them? Thanks, JT

    The wipier knob has a set screw you loosen, then remove the knob from the switch shaft. Then unscrew the trim ring.
    The light switch has a spring loaded button on the switch. You reach up behind the dash, push the little button and while holding it in, or partway in, pull on the knob. The knob and the shaft will all come out together. It may take a bit of jiggling button and knob to get it out. (sounds kinda like dirty work)

    Just a note: Make sure to disconnect the wiring harness from the headlight switch or disconnect the battery before removing the headlight switch knob. The lights stay on when the knob is removed.
