How does the wiper knob come off the turn signal stalk? Is it just pressed on or what. I need to remove it so I can fix the cruise control mount ears that are broken. The FSM for the 89 says remove it, but doesn't specify how.

Hey Chump thanks for the reply, I figured it out. The knob slides straight off, it has a round shaft with a flat on the end. The knob is just a press fit, I used a pair of linemans pliers, placed the cutter blades to catch behind the knob next to the cruise control switch. A firm pull and off it pops.

Thanks again
