I just purchased a 'Type-R' e-brake handle on e-bay, but I can't figure out how to remove the stock one. I tried turning it, but that didn't work. Anyone know how to remove the handle?

well i just looked in the shop manual and i think your right, as far as i can tell
it doesnt look like it comes apart. usually if it can come apart it will be shown in an exploded view, but in this image it is all one piece. sorry couldn't help.

what some people are doing is using an exacto or razor blade to slit the rubber handle. It is glued on so you'll have to pull hard.
