    With great difficulty and brute force. You have to destroy it basicaly to get it off. I used a junior hacsaw on mine.

    You need to cut all the rubber off the top and then you need to hacksaw away at the plastic shaft to remove it completly. Took my a good hour or so to do mine. Worth it though!
