I just purchased a used E36 M3; the previous owner removed the stock leather
handbrake handle and put an aluminum aftermarket thing on. I would like to
put a stock handle back on. The BMW dealer doesn't sell just the handle -
you have to buy the whole lever assembly. So I did, thinking I'll just take
the leather handle off the new lever and put it on the one in the car.
The question is, how do I take the handle off? It seems to be glued on very
tight. I'd like to avoid replacing the whole lever, if possible.
Any help appreciated.
