Default AC control panel and knobs

The heat/ac control for setting the distribution of air to defrost, upper or lower vents, etc on my 2012 XB does not turn enough to change the outlet setting. I see I can buy a used set of controls and panel on ebay but I can't figure out how to remove the panel and knob assemblies. Is it just snapped in place or do I have to pull the knobs and unbolt it? I hope I can disassemble the mode switch and repair it or replace it if need be.

Default

Got it apart and found someone had glued the switch in to the panel. Once I removed the panel I unplugged the wire/cable the knob would turn just fine. I hooked the wire/cable back up after aligning the end of the cable to the position of the knob and now I have the knob turning to 3 of the 5 positions. It must be an issue of getting the cable and knob clocked correctly to each other. I'm quiting while I'm ahead though I have the defroster and main vent positions working good so I'll leave it at that for now.
