How does one remove the dash knobs for hood, headlight, overdrive. Do they simply pull off. I don't see a set screw. I don't want to destroy them in the process.........Brad

Headlite - there's a little button on the body of the switch. While pressing that button, extract the knob and shaft out towards the cabin.;)

The other two you speak of, the knobs don't "come off". They come out with the shaft and wire that's attached to them.:(

I had one knob that a FO has used epoxy to cement the knob on. I don't understand why some people do such permant 'fixes'.
