You will need to get the two washers off and the plastic that they are holding on. Probably needle nose pliers. If the new one came with washers on it use them if it didn't you will have to use the two you take off. Put washers on new knob first. You will see a flat spot inside the knob that slides on the shaft. Just line up the flat spot and push it on.
