Re: CJ Heater Duct Knobs...how to remove????
The knobs are a loose fit, and I do not know of a good way to remove them, but if you know how they go on, you might be able to remove them easier.
The post coming out of the dash is a half moon, being rounded on one side and flat on the other. Now, the flat side also has a "C" taken out of it, so it's recessed in the middle. The knob has a tab on the inside, facing backwards, like a barb on a fishook. When you press it on the barb (or tab), sides on easily, but in coming off it likes to catch on one side of the "C" and stop. If you could make a small tool that would go inside from the back and move the tab up, the knobs would side right off.
Instead of the cool aluminum ones, go find an old Scout 800, theirs are steel and are held on with allen screws, so they're removeable, otherwise they're the same as the Jeep ones. I have a few on the Scrambler and they work great.
