light knob removal

Post by Melchior » Mon Sep 03, 2018 10:23 am

Hi,

does anybody know how to remove the black plastic knob of the light switch? I removed the little grub screw but the know resists any attempt to get it off. What does the intake of the plastic knob look like? Is it a screw or just a bolt? Is there a special trick or something?

regards, Martin

Martin, have you tried unscrewing the knob? There should be a threaded brass insert inside the plastic knob.

Hello all,

Thank you very much for the information.

I tried to upload the picture but it does not work. Around the knob there is a green plastic ring which obviously should light when lights are turned on - unfortunately it does not now. It has the pull/turn mechanism. My car is 250@GTE #3631.

I am happy to send the pic of the switch to an emailadress if you name one.

Regarrds,

Martin

Hi Guys,

You should be able to post pictures again. Sorry about the delay. I may know how to fix a Ferrari, but running a SQL server, and upgrading software to it is not my strong suit!
