Pioneer TX7100 function knob and tuning knob removal

Hello, has anyone removed the function and tuning knobs of a Pioneer TX7100?
I had been trying but I am running into a stiff resistance and I am afraid I might break it.
Do they just pull out?
Thanks in advance.. Rob

I looked at the service manual and all the knobs appear to be knurled, which means they push on. There should be no set screws to loosen, so the knobs should just pull off. I have worked on equipment where the previous owner glued the knob on--not fun.
