It can be pretty hard to "simply twist" the old hand brake off. I would recommend wrapping a towel around the old one while you twist it. This is what I did and believe me your hands will thank you later. :thumbup:

I heated it with a hair dryer and still had to resort to the best tool of all: vice grips. I just twisted it off with those. I did kind of damage the original handle a bit though. Couple of minor tears.

2 hours with a dremel and 3 ruined bits later, I got the original one off, it was a nightmare, it was glued on there pretty good.
