I used the shade tree mechanic approach to get them off in the first place. A 10" Crescent wrench with the jaws just open enough to go over the flat metal arm, and a small block of wood between the wrench and the dash and allow me to quickly pry up with the wrench. One quick jerk each, and the knobs came off. Of course I had to watch where they went because they went flying.

Have to try that approach.  Mine are on the round controls and out of the dash.  I tried to clamp and rod in a vise and twist the knob off - it broke.  Then I tried to place and wrench over the rod against the knob and smack it with a hammer - knob broke.  Quit as I was getting no where.  Ended up getting after market controls and painted the knobs Bright Red.
