The removal must have been straightforward enough that the specific steps do not stand out to me. Mine is from an 84 300D.

The tape on my wheel was crinkled and coming off. I made a new one by duplicating the pattern using Microsoft Excel and printing it in color on some adhesive backed paper, then then covering the face with a good quality clear packaging tape. I cut this out, taped it on, and it looks like new. I made it in both F and C. I switched to Farhenheit on mine. I have a few extra copies of the printout and could send one out if you supply a self addressed stamped envelope. PM me.
Thanks for the offer but I am in position to cannibalise an old CCU unit that has a nice wheel. Just could not fugure out how to get that pin.
