i havent done this yet, but from previous posts, it sounds as though you have to just break off the old one.

Punch the retaining pin into the shaft. There is enough play that once pushed in will release the handle and it will pull off. After you fish out the old pin, slide on the new handle and push in the new pin flush with the handle.
This is much easier to do with the parking brake assy out of the car.

Isn't that the way it is on most everything in the car. "To replace battery, it is easier to remove it from the car.."..Geez, what were they thinking when they made the car?...*G

Thanks for the info! I'll give it a try before I attack it with my Dremel.....
