Behind the dash, on the headlight switch itself, there is a "pin" that you have to push in in order to pull out the light knob. Feel under the dash, the pin is toward the back of the switch. When you push it in, with your other hand, move the light knob in and out. It will come out. Then, you can remove the nut, take the switch out from behind the dash.

Will the 1972 Chevy pickup doors fit on a 1973 Chevy pickup?

No a 1972 Chevy pickup is not the same model as a 1973 Chevy pickup. I believe it goes from 1967-1972, 1973-1980, 1981-1987. Doors will work from 1973-1976, 1977-1987. You would need to find 1972 doors as they are the only ones taht will fit a 1972. 1967-1971 are the same but there is something different about 1972 doors.
