Ok im sure you either have this answer because it was such a long time ago but...you need to take the door panels off and then there is a big rod that is connected to the black nob. it is very flexible and if you pull on it, it should pop right out. but you will have to gtet a full wire and new nob to replace it.

I used to have a ford ranger that i took the plastic thing off and replaced it with little dice. Thats when i thought that stuff was cool when i first strted driving at the age of 16 haha...but yes... take off the door panel , hold the rod and give theplastic cap thingy a good tug or try unscrewing it. All i had to do was unscrew the ones off my old truck

I just added power door locks to mine, and in looking at those, mine at least were glued on. To take them off would have broken them and not sure if there are threads underneath or not.
