The driver's side heater control knob on my '73 280 is not able to move the cable that controls the valve lever against the firewall.  The valve lever works manually, but the instrument knob does not move the lever.  I am sure the knob and cable have separated.  Is there an "easy" way to take of the heater instrument panel to get a look at the cable controls?  I do not want to start prying and break something.
Thanks,

You can try removing the metal grille above--there are two spring-loaded pins that hold the grille in place--then look to see whether the cable has popped off the control lever.

Another work-around is to position the valve on the firewall in the mid-way position in cold weather and use the passenger-side lever to regulate cabin heat--good luck
