confused How to remove light knob?

I have a 2000 Mustang and tried to insert a new gauge face. However, I can't do this without removing the light knob. How do I remove it.

Thanks for your help!

pull the knob out, and on the bottom take a tiny screw driver and hold the clip back while you pull the knob out, make sure your gauges don't rub on your spedo or tach, i had this problem, ended up pullong the guages out,

Re: How to remove light knob?

Pull the Headlight Knob all the way out and rotate it counter clockwise till it stops. You should be able to now see the slot with the keeper inside. Insert a small screw driver into the slot and push the metal keeper to the rear of the car. It may be easier to hold the knob with your right hand and then push the release towards the rear of the car. There is not a lot of movement when you release the keeper, it is just a pressure fit.


If Tape can't fix it, It ain't broke!
