Default How To Remove Ebrake Boot

Howdy everyone, first post here. So I posted this on the other max forum and waited a month with no response, even after 2 bumps. So, this is what I originally wrote:

"I can't get the stupid stock ebrake boot off of my 2004 Max. I need to adjust the nut and want to take off the boot to do it since I don't have a deep hex drive, so I'm using a wrench. That's not the point though. I want the thing off. I removed the plastic piece on the base that covers the hole, and then I tried pulling up on the rubber handle, but it seems like the aluminum ring around the fake chrome button is keeping it in there. So, based on another thread, I tried removing the ring with a flathead, and it came up about an inch then got caught on something, I can't tell what, so at this point, like an idiot, I tried to brute force it out with some vise grips, which just bent it out of shape enough for it to block the lever release button. So, I don't want to f*** it up even more. I'm ready to bust out the blowtorch because I hate running into crap like this. You'd think it would be failry straightforward. Thoughts?"

I tore my finger open pretty badly the other day on the metal ring. I found a replacement ebrake handle entire assembly for $45 online. I'm thinking of getting it if it's a one piece type of affair. Thoughts?

It sounds like you need the replacement any way. The whole assembly should be much easier to change and then I would invest in the socket you need.

Welcome.
I would recomend to download a repair manual in the future it will save you money and your hands.
You need a socket and extension to fit inside the boot to adjust. Maybe this will help.

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to replace the whole thing. I saw the adjusting nut but didn't have the long socket to go over so I decided to get creative : /. I ended up buying the long sockets. My next task is going to be searching for a manual online, but those diagrams above help a lot. Thanks again, I found my new forum.
