Is there an easy way to remove the plastic gaiter from the handbrake lever ona 230SLK R170, in order to remove the centre column section for reapinting? I have been told that it 'just pulls off' but do not wish to damage it. It is press formed and does not seem to ewant to move. Any suggestions welcome

It does simply slide off but takes a lot of muscle, try twisting it clockwise and anticlockwise to free it;
