Hello and do you still need help?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Just wondering how to pop off the knobs on the switches. Just lever it off with a screw driver? I did not want to break the knobs
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 1 month ago.

Yes exactly just use a small screw driver with some electrical tape on it so you don't scratch things get behind the knobs and gently apply pressure to force it off and as you apply the pressure you can wiggle it with your other hand or better still use two screw drivers one on each side and wiggle while you apply that pressure. They just snap back on with even pressure. if they have a screw on some you will see a hole in which with a light will see a small screw in it.if no hole then they are just a snap fit.
