Okay here is my question has anyone tried to put on an aftermarket e-brake handle that you needed to cut off about a 1/2 inch of metal from the top of the e-brake lever around the button. The button itself is just fine but the inside of the Carbon fiber e-brake handle I just received as some piece of metal that hits the metal around the top of it and taking a hack saw to it is my only thought.

So would this be a problem down the road??

Has anyone tried it?

Or has anyone found a really nice looking Carbon Fiber e-brake handle that fits with no modification??

thanks everyone

What I would do instead of cutting it is getting a aftermarket aluminum E brake button with some red thread locker and slide your carbon fiber cover on and applying red thread lock to the inside of E brake button and thread down till your satisfied with fitment and depth of button

The E brake button threads on like a nut and the oem cover with a little bit of twisting left and right will slide off the E brake shaft
So I need to first, unscrew the button counterclockwise and then twist and pull off the handle? Previously I was just trying to pull the handle off first but it didn't budge, so I just wanted to confirm I need to remove the button first. Thanks!

Boot will slide off... button has a slight tapered end on it slightly wider on the back side inside boot cover if I remember correctly
Pull boot first then unscrew the button counter clockwise
it is NOT reverse threaded
