How to remove the knobs from heater control?

Recommended Posts

Hello, i want to replace the decal on my heater control, and also paint the little pictures on the knobs of my heater control, but i do not know how to remove them. The car is a mk5 but i believe its the same in the mk4 and 3.

 

Thanks

I think there's a small round plastic peg that needs pushing out ( small hammer & punch) or you may have to prise them off I'll have a look.

Right had a look the fan one seems to have a pin in the underside but dunno how you'd pull it out??

The other two must just be a push fit.

I managed to get the other two off, but no ammount of prying is getting the fan knob off. I tried to push the pin, and that did not work. I will have another go tommorow.

You might have to drill it out & find/make something to put back in it.

It's probably so it doesn't pull off when pulled for eyeballs only blowing.

i tried drilling it out today and its still not coming off, i put a little bit of wd40 in it and i will let it sit overnight.

Still not coming off, I'm completely stumped.

Presume you've gone a bit over halfway through?

Would presume that other than the pin it would be the same as other 2.

yes, i have drilled as far through as i can go without drilling right through it, cant be corrosion as the wd40 did nothing. i guess i could try a thicker drill bit?

Possibly , sometimes things can cling on by the smallest bit.

i managed to get them off in the end, but not without drilling right through the heater knob though :( I fixed it with some hot glue and spray paint
