Default Re: Remove metal plate that covers knobs

Hi Henry, well if it was my problem, and the knob has got to come off, I would drill a small hole down the centre of the knob squirt some WD 40 down towards the centre of the screw and just undo the Philips screw. If you start using solvents or heat prying tools you have a chance of destroying the total knob structure. If and when the knob has to be reinstalled you could "glue" a bead of aluminium over the drilled hole and a man on a galloping horse would never notice it, Ha Ha .In fact it will then be a unique radio regards Brian.
