Warmer knob replacement Ranco

Hello all, wondering if the warmer knob on a Ranco control handle is threaded?
I am rebuilding mine and I have a new rubber grommet coming for the dash bracket. I do not want to split the grommet so was wondering if the knob unscrews off
I tried to loosen, but don’t want to crack the Bakelite

On my 50 the rod was splined.

Originally it was probably pressed, aftermarket pressed or glued.
Try a little heat from a blower gun

Original wiper knob same, pressed
