Default ac/heat controls

Does anyone know what it takes to remove the knobs fron the controls? I have some new inserts I want to put on the face but not sure if the knobs just pull off or if I have to take the unit apart. Any help would be great..

Um can you be specific? You say knobs but what your describing sounds like your wanna put on a new guage face.

AC/heat contriols, like it says in the subject

I would think they just pull off.

Please fix these errors to view your results.

Yes he said ac/heat controls but I have never heard of inserts for these. So I am curious.

Yes Evil, thats exactly what it is, I found some inserts on ebay,
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2008-...4640QQtcZphoto
and I want to install them without tearing up the controls. It all started with metallic red decals and kept going from there. I'm getting into the scarlet and gold theme (Marine Corps colors) . Bob, I thought that they would just pull off also, I get them halway off and they just stop. No visable lock screw or nothing that I can see without taking the whole tower apart which is what I'm trying to avoid. I've already got the bike apart in the basement as I started to do some mods for the spring so I really don't want to have the car apart to.

Yeah I know that guy. Haven't checked on his stuff in a long time. Most likely they stick on top and you don't have to take them apart. If you got questions check his website, he may have directions and if not email him he is a nice guy. It where I got my guage face overlay from. I am thinking of getting a new one. I am kinda tired of Iron Man already. I love Iron man but I think I want something less specific and more universal.

So . . .

You go from REMOVING the man of iron to EXPANDING that theme in a matter of seconds!
--You sound REAL committed to that . . . :P

Idea:
-Some "retro" (some streamline/deco late-1930s) font ones might look nice . . .

I have decided not to go with Iron Man. I was just saying that he went ahead and made one with Iron Man to match the guage face I have.
