Rob,

Thanks for the fog light info. I purchased all the parts. I have a stupid question. How do you remove the air brake knob? Is it a Allen key? (If yes, What size is it if you know.)

Thanks,
Jim

You are welcome!
Good luck and let me know if I can help in any way.

As far as the parking brake knob, it is held to the shaft by a small roll pin. You use a small punch and small hammer to gently drive it out. It doesn't matter which way you push it out, but I have found that driving it from the right towards the steering column works best for me. You can twist the knob to orient the shaft if you need to. Tap lightly so the pin doesn't go flying!

When I put it back together I slightly insert the pin into the knob, but not far enough to enter the center bore of the knob. Then I place it back over the shaft and align the pin and hole. Then I gently tap the pin until it is flush. Then just a few light taps with the punch to center the pin in the knob.

Here is a picture of the 1/8" pin punch I use:
