Impostor is an unknown quantity at this point
I want to replace the automatic shifter knob and E-brake handle on my 92BMW.

I recentally purchased some nice brushed aluminum ones off E-bay, but they arrived without any instructions on how to remove the old ones . I looked at the E-brake and just cant figure out how it comes off is it pressed on and do I just pull and pull till it comes off??

And what about the automatic shifter knob, any help guys on how I can take these off the eaisest way possible without messing anything up. I would like to know if there is a special way or do I just go out there with brute strength and YANK!!

Can you guys help me out thanks

Thanks

i believe you go pull the e-brake and put the auto shifter in drive, then yank as hard as you can while keeping vital body parts away from the sudden-release area. correct guys?

Ok so just pull the E-brake handle off, should it be set (pulled up) or no??

And the autoshifter put into drive then pull, why does it have to be set into the drive position?


Thanks Guys
