You have to remove the chrome bezel. It unscrews from the headlight switch If you look there will be 4 small indentations inside of the bezel where you removed the knob IF you have a big enough screwdriver you can put it in the slots and unscrew it, You may have to grab the HL switch under the dash and rock it back and forth a little to loosen it You wont be able to rock it much as the hole in the dash is keyed to prevent it from spinning


Here is a pic from Scott Drakes Website, its a Mustang, but its virtually the same thing Be careful, those bezel nuts are kinda hard to find
