Wipers and indicators handle removing

690 2
Hello everybody, Let me introduce myself:

My name is Israel and I' the glad owner of a 1998 R170 silver grey 230K.

My first question to you all is:

Can anyone tell me how to remove the handle that controls the wipers and indicators? My car does not have adjustable steering wheel and the plastic cover around the steering bar is fixed. I need to remove it in order to fix the flash connection because the metal is bended and cannot do it properly with the handle in its position, but cannot find the way to remove the bloody handle from there.

If anyone had any photos (maybe from the service manual) it would be great, but description of the work is also welcomed.

Thanks in advance
