Yeah just push a flathead in there and pull the knob off at the same time.. Problem is someone before you might have broken it and glued it back on

If your just replacing the lights at the back the haynes is wrong you dont need to take the middle switch out, i did the first time and broke it, just take undo the 4 screws and pull it out the heater console,

Are you talking about the MFD or the Heater/Fan controls?

On my 99 Sport I had to take the whole thing apart.. 3 Dials off, and black plastic facia.. No other way to get into them.. Never bothered doing them in my 96 corsa but the dials were definatly easier to get off.. Strip that muther dude..

You need to remove the whole thing.. Tilt the top vents foward and release the screws behind, then pull off the recirc slider and the facia behind it to uncover the two lower screws, remove the hazard light switch and lever the connector inside the panel downwards (so it drops out), the panel will then come away.. You need to disconnect the fan switch loom and un do all of the vent control wires...

Now you can remove the panel and access the torx bolts that hold the bulb carrier to the back of it

Gonna have to just stick flat head by the side and leaver it off (put a rag on the screwdriver so as to not mark the facia) and just force it off.. Sort out whatever damage is done after.. or else just leave em alone..
