How do you remove the headlight switch knob on the dash of 1978 Lincoln Mark V?

Need to remove the headlight dash knob and nothing in the manual I have is helpful. The manual says to puch on the spring through the little slot, but there does not appear to be any slot or spring.

Save your self the hassle and expence of troubleshooting and replacement parts, install a suspension retrofit kit which changes the rear bags to coil springs and the front to struts. A car this old you might as well start over for less than $500.00......

How do i remove just the knob?


The wiper knob has a clip you release, and the headlight knob comes out of the switch with the rod attached. There is a button on the headlight switch you press to release the knob and rod together.

How do you remove/replace the light switch on the dash


It's easy, I had a 98 F-150 (same switch) and I removed the switch a couple of times.

Disconnect Neg battery cable, then turn switch to ON position and pull knob outward to the fog light ON position. Using a small screwdriver, pry the knob off the headlight switch.

Turn the knob 180 degrees from the ON position an reinstall it back onto the headlight switch.

Turn the headlight switch to the OFF position, then rotate the knobclokcwise as far as possible and hold it. This will enable the lockingtab on the back to retract and the headlight switch to be removed fromthe instrument panel.

How do I replace the headlight switch in a 1985 ford f150 xlt


  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Depending on the year and model remove the wiper/washer and fog lamp switch knob if they will interfere with the headlight switch knob removal. Check the switch body (behind dash, see Step 3) for a release button. Press in on the button and remove the knob and shaft assembly. If not equipped with a release button, a hook tool may be necessary for knob removal.
  3. Remove the steering column shrouds and cluster panel finish panel if they interfere with the required clearance for working behind the dash.
  4. Unscrew the switch mounting nut from the front of the dash. Remove the switch from the back of the dash and disconnect the wiring harness.
  5. Install in reverse order.
Good luck.....
