You can carefully prise the knob off - use 2 flatblade screwdrivers, but take your time - don't rock it around too much, as they are flimsy.

Try tightening the mounting ring with a pair of snipe nose pliers.

If the spindle itself flops around, it's probably better to replace it with one from a wreckers - you'll need one from any E series equivalent fairlane/fairmont/ghia/LTD - look for a green coloured connector on the back.
