On the premise “a picture is worth a thousand words”... Anyone know how I might best get the button separated so as to get the switch back into the dash from behind? 

 

Is (carefully?!) drilling the steel pin out after all these years the only option? - You can see I have already taken small chunks out of the baker-light... I got it out by dismantling the switch but putting that back together in situ is definitely least preferred option! 

On a final note, replacement (I have found) are total garbage; are ‘originals’ available?

Thanks all in anticipation, Tony

Normaly the pin is just pressed inwards (it is sprung) to release the knob.

Yes, but they rust in solid.  A few days with your favourite
penetrating oil should do the trick, but you have probably
damaged it already beyond satisfactory repair.
