Is there a set screw in the knob? If so, I would back that out, which should allow you to remove the knob, then remove the two screws on the face plate, and I would expect that the inside portion would slide right out. If no set screw in the knob I would assume the knob is held in place with a snap ring on the backside, in which case I would think that all you need to do is remove the two screws in the face plate. A lot of assumptions and expectations I guess, not knowing what brand it is, nor exactly what "have tried everything" means, but that's how I would start.

Very tiny set screw....I think I see it in the reflection from the flat plate, reflecting from the spindle of the turn knob
