    Then what are you looking for? There isn't a real different way. I've changed a few dozen and it worked for me.. But if you insist.. Here is it step by step from the service manual

    8.6 Frequency Knob
    This section explains how to remove and attach the frequency knob.
    8.6.1 Remove the Frequency Knob
    To remove the frequency knob:
    1. Hold the radio in one hand so that the top of the radio faces upward, and the front of the radio
    faces you.
    2. With the other hand, grasp the frequency knob (13) and pull it upward, while rocking the knob
    back and forth, until it is free from the frequency knob retainer insert (11), or the insert is free
    from the shaft.
    3. If necessary, while pressing the insert’s (11) two snap tabs away from the frequency control
    shaft so that the insert disengages from the shaft, use needle-nosed pliers to lift the insert up
    and off of the frequency control shaft. Discard the removed insert.
    4. Remove the secure lever (10) and the indicator lightpipe (9).
    8.6.2 Install the Frequency Knob
    To install the frequency knob:
    1. Hold the radio so that the top of the radio faces upward, and the front of the radio faces you.
    2. Align the lightpipe indicator (9) so that its straight tab is over the slot for the illuminated
    pointer. Push the tab down into the slot so that it is securely seated.
    3. Place the secure lever (10) on the frequency control shaft, aligning it so that its pointer is at
    the front of the radio and its two inner slots line up with the two keys on the shaft
    . Slide the
    secure lever down to the bottom of the shaft.
    4. If you are replacing the frequency dial escutcheon (12):
    a. Remove the backing paper from the escutcheon.
    b. Align the number “1” on the escutcheon with the alignment notch on the frequency knob
    retainer insert (11).
    c. Slide the escutcheon down over the insert, ensuring that the alignment tab on the escutcheon
    fits inside the tab recess on the insert.
    d. Press the escutcheon firmly onto the insert to ensure proper adhesion.
    5. Place a new frequency knob retainer insert (11) and new frequency dial escutcheon (12) on
    the frequency control shaft, aligning the insert’s D-shaped hole with the D-shaped shaft
    .
    Press downward firmly on the insert until it snaps in place on the shaft.
    6. Place the frequency knob (13) on the insert (11), aligning it’s pointer with the number “
    1” on
    the escutcheon (12). Press firmly downward on the knob until it seats securely in place.

    Just FYI, we don't spoonfeed here. Next time you're going to have to read the service manual on your own. CTRL + F (Find) works good. Search for the word "knob".

    Thank you.
