    There is a release button on the switch to remove the knob. Then there is a nut if I remember correctly

    Was that a leather or cloth interior? Were the seats still there?

    Beige cloth interior. 81 Corinthian edition. Its been there for close to two years. I just saw it last month. Other than smashed front end, it must have been in beautiful shape when it arrived.
