IIRC! Headlight - reach behind the dash for a button on the switch body. Push and the knob comes off. Wiper - there is spring washer in the knob that grabs the knob shaft. push on that with a screwdriver and the knob comes off. Vent cable - likely a junkyard item.

I've got my headlight switch out at the moment. Easiest way is to have the instrument cluster out first. That's held by about 6 screws and you need to unscrew the speedo cable. Then you can reach the headlamp switch harness on the left side near where the heater controls are located.

As mentioned, there's a little button you have to hold in while pulling the knob and shaft all the way out. The shaft is triangular so you want the button to be on the flat side of the shaft. Then pull it out slow while holding the button down. It should slide out pretty easy unless you don't have it on the flat side.

If you really don't want to take the cluster off I suppose you could reach up through the tangle of wires and try to feel for the button and try to hold your fingers on it while pulling, but it's very frustrating doing it that way.

cave man
thanx
I need one of the vent cable assemblies

the left one,.....it is shorter

my knob is fine and screws off
so if I can get a left side vent pull

that has a good clip
( the clip that holds them in the rectangular dash hole )

I will be happy

my knobs are black with silver symbols

thanx
