It's unlikely that you have to remove the knobs to remove the pickguard... On any P Type bass the controls are mounted to the pickguard so you don't have to remove the knobs first.
As mike phillips wrote, protect a flat blade screw driver with some masking tape, slip it under the knob, pry up a bit, rotate the knob, pry a little again, etc. gently working the knob off of the pot's shaft.
