Okay, so it's sunday night and I decide that I am going to replace the current radio with a newer aftermarket one on my '76 Cobra. 4 hours later with every concievable screw in the dash un-done and me cursing a blue streak, I decide that I NEED HELP. Please, can someone tell me what the trick is...I got the top dashpad off, and the area around the guages is loose (but cannot be removed because I cannot figure out how to get the headlight knob off) and other than that I am stuck.. Would appreciate any help that anyone can give me. Thanks!

Zeph, There is a spring loaded button on the left side of the switch,pull the switch out in the parking light mode, and push in on the button and hold in while pulling out the knob,it should come right out.

You really don't need to remove those to change the radio. Remove the console (if you have the full length console), then the ashtray and bracket (3 screws). The radio should come out the bottom after removing the brace on it and the wiring.

You can still buy the special socket to remove the shaft nuts from Matco tools. Or you could make one if you're strapped for cash.
