Ive been trying to figure out how to remove this **** today, and I know i've read a few posts of people trying and they say the **** cant be removed but I just dont believe it! I cut off some of the rubber on the **** with a knife and its all white plastic underneith.. I just dont believe that its actually impossable to remove the **** lol has anyone had any luck?
I THINK the rod is finely splined and the **** is pressed on. Are you wanting to install a custom ****/handle? If so you may need to remove the lever from the vehicle and carefully grind the end down to the appropriate diameter for threading to your desired size. If removal of the **** remains a problem, heat it and the lever with a dryer or heat gun (be careful with a heat gun) and it should soften and slide off fairly easily.
