97 seat belt adjuster knob

Help, how do you remove the knobs from the seat belt height adjuster slides on the b, c pillars so I can install the headliner back in? I removed the covers already and broke a rear slider knob of the bracket and would like to get this done, I have spent 2 plus hours on the internet and have found the questions asked but no answers, Thanks, Tim

Should just pull off, that's the way I've gotten them off in past.

I tried that on the rear and it broke off. I will check again tomorrow and try the other side.

Use a flathead screw driver to aid, there's a slot in the knobs to help prying open the plastic locking levers.
Do NOT try to remove in cool/ cold weather. Only when it's warm.

I saw that, and, for Arizona anyways it was cold, broke the rear one and stopped. I will try again on the other side and see if I can put this back together tomorrow, Thanks, for the help, Tim

They pull off.

Use a pair of needle nose pliers between the knob and the plastic slider.

Just lived this pain this weekend recovering my headliner, console and sun visors.

Had to go to the local Pull-A-Part this morning to replace the front slider assemblies.
