Default parking brake grip removal

What's the secret to remove the parking brake handle? I don't see any hardware, so I assume it's glued?

Ok it was glued on. There was a lot of glue, which I don't think is normal. Grip firmly, slowly twist handle both ways, and eventually it will start to slide off.

After all that, I'm not sure I care for the voodoo e-brake handle I just put on. The voodoo shift **** otoh is the shiznit.

Agreed. The shift **** is clutch (ahem), but the parking brake handle I could live without.
