Typical GM knobs would pull right off, however, other company's knobs often had a small set screw. Turn the knob around and see if there is a recessed hole where a screwdriver or allen wrench might fit to loosen a set screw and allow removal of the knobs. Work slowly and carefully to avoid damaging anything.
