I just bought a new knobs for my switches and I was wandering if there was a certain way to get the knobs already on off?

You haven't yet put ANY information into your Profile (please complete your Profile area) so we have no clue what type of Jeep, its model type, model year, or even what knobs you're asking about. Info man, you didn't provide us with any so we can help you.

Ok, I'm moving this to the CJ Technical forum then. The only CJ I have experience with was a '73 so I can't help you. I'd look on the side of the knobs for a little set screw though.

In oem form, the knobs are one with the three cables and light switch rod ( non removable) and separate or removable on the fan speed switch and wiper switches due to the mounting of these switches and cables through the steel dash plate. In many cases, the cables get stiff and the knobs are pulled off the ends by accident. So they sell replacement metal knobs with small set screws to attach them to the cable ends. Your doing to opposite and removing the knobs from unbroken cables... Or so it sounds.
