Hmmm, that wasn't my experience. In order to get to the bottom HVAC light, I removed all 3 knobs. On the first pull, each knob slightly moved. But, after that, those knobs would not move. I was very careful to pull straight out.

Finally, wedging a corner of an old credit card behind the knob and rotating the knob pushed the knob outward. Repeatedly wedging in more card and rotating the knob worked the knobs off.
