    Got a new hand brake cover but i cannot for the life of me remove it

    i have looked down the shaft of the new one and i have a rough idea of how it is held in but no matter how much i pry, squeeze and twist there is no hope of me getting it off at the minuite without me cutting it off - which id rather not do!

    anyone with this experience or any idea of how to get it off??

    thanks in advance :D

    Here is the page from the workshop manual showing how the trim is removed and refitted. Looking at the diagrams I can see why you're having trouble ! Hope this helps.
