    absolute ball ache of a job, took me ages to figure it out the first time! theres a horseshoe shaped pin with flared ends holding it in place. you need to open the pin out to release the handle. try making a gap between the handle and the large rubber washer, itll be easier to see. it seems so simple when you've done it!

    on my old nova i found it pretty easy with a pair of long nosed pliers, same way that tool works, release the clip/wire thing and sort of lever the pliers towards you to pop it off

    Have to agree with autoSRI - slide a rag up there in a sawing motion.
