Need the experts to weigh in here.

I am trying to remove the wiper switch from the dash panel (early type dash). I have loosened the two opposing nuts holding it tight to the dash.

Now I do not know how to remove the switch from the dash. It is an OEM switch with vestigial fabric covered wires still in place.

I need to remove either the knob or the actual switch from the shaft to separate it from the dash. So how does one do this? Is it pressed together? Threaded? I see a very small set pin in the black plastic end of the pull knob and I assume this attaches the knob to the shaft.

Please don't tell me removing that pin is the answer. I'll likely destroy the knob in the process.

Thanks in advance!

KC

PS I got to use my Whitworth wrenches today!

Hi Kent,

Just use a small punch and push the pin in (it's spring loaded) and pull the knob free from the shaft. It's very easy.

Hello Curt

I am pleased to report that the 65 year old spring is alive and well. That worked like a charm.

So easy once you know...

Muchos gracias! Many thanks!

Kent
