    those knobs suck! I put a brand new one on my SLX and the following year it flew off at me in the spring when I took the cover off. A real PITA to install too.

    Indeed. I just replaced the knob on the '94 SL750 I have I'm gradually fixing. I finally removed the hood so I could get to it easier. What I did was use a 3" pneumatic cutting wheel and ground through the end of the OEM knob to extract the pin. When i put the new one in place I was able to use channel locks and press the pin into place.
