Default Adding a Volume Control(PLEASE HELP)

Hi i just got a Garmin iQue M5 GPS/PPC and what i'm trying to do is hard wire it to my car. The only car docking station that Garmin makes for this unit plugs into the cigarette lighter and that end contains a speaker and volume control. I have a spot in the car where i want to put the speaker and the volume knob. I took apart the end that contains the speaker and volume dial and don't think it will be a problem to hardwire. The only issue i'm having is what kind of volume knob do i buy and how should it be wired? The dial thats on the circut board has 3 prongs and the speaker is 8ohm 2/3 watts. So what i have to do is extend the speaker and dial from the circut board then hide the board....What ever help you can give me will be great...Thanks Joe
