Hand Brake Lever Removal

How the heck do you remove the hand brake lever? I've looked in all my manuals and online and all they say is remove the clevis pin. OK, did that, but how do you get the cable out? The cable passes through a rubber gromit thing but the cable eye will not pass through the gromit. Gromit will not pass back through the hole it is mounted in either.

Removing the seat box and this is the last thing holding it in.

Thanks
Brett

On my truck, the cable is attached to a steel strap that is bolted to the reverse side of the seatbox. Removing two screws from the seatbox disconnects the cable (and steel strap) from the seatbox.

It will pass through like a bad Mexican dinner. You can add a little lubricant if you like. Pull hard!

Sprayed it with slippery stuff and pulled... the eye slide through the gromit and the seat box is now free. Hopefully the cable will go back through without too much grief.

Thanks
