Can anybody tell me how to remove the brake handle from a Civic '97 LX, I looked for any screws, but I didn't see any.
I wanna change my old brake handle to an Ichibahn, but I don't know how to remove the old one.
I don't know the "official" way to do it, but after you take apart the center console and everything you can just like heat up a knife and slice that bad boy off. Or you can try with all your might to pull it off like I did and get nowhere.
i took a vice grip, and got that shit on there as tight as possiable, and whailed on it till i got it off. make sure that the new break handle is MADE for your year car. the one i got was for a teg, and i had to have my buddy cut it wider inside. it was suchs a BITCH! i wish i could do it all over again and get a damn momo one!
as i understand it, you can either use the heat-gun method to expand the plastic, and then slide the handle off.
OR, you can go nutzo on your car and saw the handle off (lengthwise of course!). there's no screws, so there really aren't any other ways to get it off. unless you can disconnect the brake lever as was mentioned with the Accord. dunno if this will work though.
