Thread: Remove parking brake handle

    Remove parking brake handle

    Hello all,
    I am wondering if someone knows how to, properly, get the plastic handle off of the parking brake lever. I am thinking that it is just a press on and hammer off like a gear lever knob, but I want to make sure before I break things.
    Thanks

    Mine was glued on and never,ever coming off without destroying it, which I did. New ones are easy to get at least, but I had to glue that on because the fit is also loose.

    a block of wood and a hammer, just place the wood under the handle and hammer up. The bigger the hammer the better, as long as you have the wood under the handle

    This is what I figured. I just wanted some confirmation.
