Knob inserts for all the cables/switches

I know a thread exsists for this but I can't seem to find it after 30 minutes of searching. It has to do with replacing the symbols in the knobs. I'm looking for the technique to dismantle the knobs without damaging them so I can replace one of the symbols. I'm sure it's easy but don't want to risk breaking anything.

Russ,

Take a look at this picture -

the metal clip holds the stack to the knob.

That's the thread! Thanks! Now I need to look at the knobs this weekend to see if they can or cannot be taken apart. I'll keep my fingers crossed that they can.
