I feel embarrassed to ask, BUT, I want to remove the battery cutoff I had installed several decades back.
I have the switch body behind the console however I can not see how the knob can be removed.
before I chisel it off, anyone know what I am blind to?

(I don't have the 43mm hole as shown required. my hole is a snug fit to the knob's shaft)

Maybe there's a tiny hex screw in the knob or it's glued and/or pressed on. 'Sounds like you'll have to destroy it if that knob won't budge. I opted for the modern 'red plastic key' type cutoff.

A picture of your current setup may yield additional thoughts.

Good Ideal, sometimes the camera can find things I can't see.

its a cold rainy day in NC, I went out to take a serious of pics as I turned it 360, BUT the batteries died and only got a couple photos. I did take a flashlight and there is no set screw in the knob, nor a flat spot on the little bit of exposed shaft.

given I installed this couple or more decades, my gut seems to remember thinking "once this thing is installed it ain't coming back off".

BTW, what would have been in the console hole below the radio?

Will it unscrew ?

not by hand, by me. also, the car was stored outside for a couple decades so things did corrode and get moldy.

before I put a pipe wrench on it, I wish I could know

I was hoping some one would ask


here is how I thought about this.
"If I could not remove the knob from the switch, then remove the switch from the knob."

Actually, a friend from another Marque forum asked the UK Triumph forum
