You have to turn on the head lights and look behind for a clip, use a small screw driver to push and the knob should come off. Might have to turn the knob to see the clip on the back side of the knob.

Bit tricky...

Imagaine an upside down v hanging on a rod, that's what the "clip" is on the headlight knob.

There is a small "slot" in the plastic part of the headlight knob

You need to stick a small screwdriver in the slot and push the front part of the "v". All you will actually see is a thin flat metal piece, push that back so you're in essence "squeezing" the upside down "V" together so it can slide on the rod and off.

Hope that makes sense...

That's just one of the reasons I replaced mine w/UPR billet knob. Uses a simple allen head screw to fasten, no more stupid V clip to try and pry open....

Ha, I was expecting the "CRUNCH" when a plastic part breaks. I'll try to get more behind the tab and push forward harder on it next time

I hate mine. I got it off once, and now it comes off easy like it is broken. It will just pop off when I pull on it sometimes now.

Thats funny he posted how to take it off ,,mine fell off while turning on my lights, the clip fell into 2 pieces and I had nothing to pull the rod out to turn the damn lights on.It was after midnite and I tried forever to get it out with my fingers ,even with the car keys , then finally i remebered I had a pair of needle plyers in the trunk . Damn what a pain in the neck....I was stuck in the middle of nowhere after particiapating with some of the boys in some latenite country road activities...

Small, small screw driver. Something that you would use to repair eyeglasses.
