are you trying to remove the 'grip' or the leather-wrapped part from the plastic boot? If so, im almost certain the prib is a part of the boot and cant be removed. to get the whole thing off the e-brake, you have to take the cupholder trim peice off of the center console. best way to do this is find a place to grip it like the hole for the e-brake and just pull up. it has clips along the sides that will let loose. once you have the cupholder out, engauge the e-brake. once it is engagued, grip the handle and pull it towards the front of the car. it should slip off. it is basically just a sleeve that covers the actual metal e-brake handle.
