Handbrake button

Hi I'm thinking of buying a silver button to replace the black one. But how do I remove it from the handbrake. Thanks in advance

From memory it pulls off. You'll need pliers and a firm grip.

Fair enough. It may or may not be threaded but either way it is not sophisicated!

The original chrome ones do tend to come off as though they are screwed on even though there is no thread on it, however; that may just be because as you turn its instinct to pull away from the lever. the plastic ones are tight and need twisting and pulling.

I think (as not dismantled one) the shaft the button fits onto is a slightly wider diameter than the hole in the actual button, hence a tight fit. My stainless steel button just drops onto the shaft I was going to put a bit of glue on it, but it's not fallen off when driving s never bothered.
