I was attempting to replace the stock leather Brake Handle on a 2002 M3 with SMG transmission and I can not remove the original handle. The leather boot came off easily but the actural handle actually seems permanent. Does anyone have a solution as to how to remove the handle?? I tried wd40, goo remover, vice grips and tapping with hammer, all to no avail.

I used my pliers from the trunk and twisted and puilled like a mofo to get it off...it just take a while dont get too discouraged

i just did this yesterday, i used a hair dryer and heated up the knob for about 20 secs, and used all the strength and twisted the thing off, it's freaking extremely tight but it's doable

got tons of blisters on my hands now..blah

but it's worth the effor :thumbup:
