Hello, I can help you with this. With a tiny screwdriver you gently pry up on the button in the middle of the old knob. Work slowly, pry up a little at a time on the front and then the back until the button comes out. Back and forth. If you look inside you will see a snap ring, you can use snap-ring pliers to remove it or some sort of sharp pick or a screwdriver, CAUTION, when it releases it may spring into outer space never to be seen again. Then just pull the old knob off and install the new one. Good luck and if you have any other questions about this just leave a comment.
