Hey guys, how about some help. I tried to buy a much advertised repro heater control for my 68, only to be told it is promised but not available yet. So I bought a faceplate and replacement defroster lever and I'll fix up the old one. HOW DO YOU GET THE D____ knobs off! The levers are a little rusty, and the knobs are stuck tight! I'm afraid to pull too hard, don't want to break the levers.

Just fyi, after soaking them in paint stripper overnight, I was able to pry them off without breaking anything. Thanks anyway!

I just did mine not too long ago. I put a rag on the knob and then gripped it with pliers and gently rocked it back and forth while pulling straight out. It only took a few seconds and they slid right off.
