Removing Yellow Push Valve button

I removed my parking brake button. The yellow diamond shaped thingy. I made a new dash and need to add the button back but I cannot get the yellow part of the air brake vavle button off. Another forum said it was a screw off but when I twist it , it just spins. Its got a hole in the yellow park that I though was a hex key or something but its just a hole so not sure what to do.

If I cannoot get it off Ill just have to cut my new dash hold big enough to slide it through.

Any ideas,
Ken

Look at the 1st pic in the link. It might be a roll pin holding the handle on.

My experience (trucks) is if there is a hole near the base of the button it will have a roll pin holding it on. You need to use the correct tool to press the pin out, DO NOT try driving it out with a drift punch and hammer.

It is a roll pin, and a little force to get it out. While special tools are nice, I have used a hammer, drift, and a small sandbag. (Sock, with damp sand.) Use the weight to hold shaft so the shock of hammer does not go to valve. Most time, I can hold the knob in place, and push the pin out...

You can also get the roll pin out using channel lock pliers. https://www.channellock.com/product-category/pliers/

You get a small machine screw (just smaller in diameter than the roll pin) and a 1/4" drive socket, and use the pliers to squeeze the screw into the knob while the roll pin is pushed out into the socket.

It does require a little hand dexterity to hold the screw and socket in place with one hand while squeezing the pliers with the other.

Hi Ken! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

No experience with that. Noticed that you are kinda new on IRV2 and wanted to say hello! Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

And if you don't have that dexterity you would rather . It hurts less.

Sounds like a small set screw to me too, it fits into a groove in the steel shaft which permits the knob to spin with out coming off the shaft. It is probably metric size socket wrench.
