All you've got to do is slide it off. The thing is on there extremely snug though. You'll probably have to pry at it & push it with whatever you can for a while before it starts to slide off. I haven't found anything that works other than brute force. Good luck
The easiest way to get it off (in my opinion) is to get some penetrating lubricant (insert you own joke here) Namely gunk or something that'll loosen rusted parts (WD40 would probably work too... Spray that stuff into the gaps at the top of the ebrake where the button is, and just wrench the handle from left to right while pulling forward... this took me literally 2 minutes.
If anyone has any tips on installing a Momo brake handle on a 97 civic could you post? The handle goes too far back on the shaft, and I can't put it down all the way.
I've had mine on for a while now and even though the E-Brake itself doesn't sit as low as the stock one, it is low enough to properly disengage the e-brake cables. The ebrake light doesnt stay on either so it is low enough. I just put in my MOMO leather E-Brake boot to complete the shift knob and MOMO shift boot set, looks very nice together.
