For the life of me i can't figure out how to get the handle off of my e brake. I got the trim peice that the boot ataches to but the actual plastic handle won't come off. I think it's held on by a little clip or somthing underneath of it that holds it on. Please someon has to have took it off before. Later

thanx for the replies but i got it awhile back. All you need to do is pull on the handle as hard as you can while prying down on the clip near thebase of the handle. It'll slide right off.

fel near the back where it meets the boot. Underneath is a little clip. Pry down on that with a small screw driver, and pull. should come right off. Then when you push it back on the clip will click back in place. I don't know about the momo handle. If it's not a direct fit piece it might take some modding. Good luck
