Usually there is a very small screw that holds these knobs on. If you have to, you may have to hold the tripmeter reset knob with a pair of pliers to keep it from turning so you can get the screw out. This may ruin the appearance of the knob. You can purchase the knob seperately and they're aren't very expensive.

Other wise, about the only way I know of to get the dash cover off is lift the cover while tilting it to the right. Sometimes, it will come up and over the top of the speedometer enough to the get it off. I've also seen people extend the slot on the dash all the way down where the knob comes through turning it into a open ended slot so to speak.

Replacing ignition switch on a softail

Hi Anonymous, disconnect battery negative cable from battery. If you have an early FLSTF remove set screw in odometer knob, remove knob, remove console housing. Four screws secure ignition switch to speedometer mounting plate. With masking tape mark position of a clock on the wires you remove from switch. Remove switch and replace with new one. Late models are pretty much the same but without odometer knob. Good luck

How to remove fuel tank

Remove the single screw or nut that holds the speedometer cas to the tank. carefully move the case forward and release from the front or the tand. disconnect the two or three plugs and the speedometer cable and remove the speedometer case. under the case you will find a bolt holding the front of the tank. remove it along with the rear bolt. Disconnect the fuel line and the petcock vacuum line on the left side and remove the tank straight up. As you remove the tank some models have a vent line on the right side under the tank that must be removed. Don't lose the rubber knobs that hold the tank straight. they are on the frame at the bottom of the tank. Good luck.......Jim

First take the trip meter reset knob off the speedometer. Then remove the center bolt or nut from the middle of the console just below the speedometer. Work the console cover off of the speedometer. Remove the seat. Remove the fuel line from the fuel petcock and drain as much fuel out of the tank as you can. Once you get as much fuel from the petcock, disconnect the "cross-over" fuel line at the front of the tank. Catch as much of the gasoline as possible.

Remove the two bolts at the Front of each tank and the one at the rear of the tank on top of the frame remove the tanks one at the time. There is a vent line that connects both tanks that crosses underneath the dash.

Replacing tank panel

The tank panel slides over the speedometer and ignition.Take the nut off the the panel with a 1/2 inch wrench and with a very small phillips screwdriver take the odometer knob off and then carefully pull up on the panel and reinstall the same way.If we are talking about the same panel it is actually alot simpler than it looks.
