2001 Fiesta Handbrake Handle Removal ????

10 December 2008 - 10:42 PM

Just wondering if someone can tell me how the handbrake handle comes off my Fiesta Freestyle. Its a 1.25 Zetec. I cant get the plastic handle to budge. Does it slide off (with some force) or does it have to be cut off ???
Reason I want to replace it is that I've managed to get one of those Richbrook Ford branded handbrake handles quite cheap (12 delivered) and the original handbrake handle has to be removed to fit it.

Just joined up. Have been looking through the site for a few weeks. Recently bought a 2001 Fiesta Freestyle in Moondust silver with 45000 miles and full service history for a grand total of 750 :)
One of the previous owners had an idea of spraying parts of the interior in silver and has done a very bad job of it :blink:

Have spent the last 3 weeks sourcing parts from local breakers yards to replace them with and Midnight Black interior parts are very hard to come by. Most of them are no longer available via my local Ford dealer either. Have managed to get some parts from a Puma and a facelift Ford Courier that had a slightly lighter shade (Graphite) of black so its not too bad :)

The car currently has the 90's style Ghia/Si 4 spoke alloys on it which I'm not too keen on and would prefer the original wheels when I can get hold of some.

Only one previous Ford owned by me and that was a full spec'd H reg Serria Sapphire 1.8 which I owned about 6/7 years ago.
