Subaru Impreza/Crosstrek (2017+) E-Brake Handle
This product only fits:
- 2017+ Subaru Impreza (NOT FOR THE WRX/STi or any car with a screw-on button)
- 2017+ Subaru Crosstrek
The Metal handles are all 1.0" diameter. The Copolymer handles are all 1.2" diameter because the plastic material is lighter and not as strong so I beef it up to make it heftier and strengthen the set screws at the base.
The E-Brake Handle is designed to enhance the visual effects on the interior of your car. The new handle can be cut from either 6061 Aluminum, 303 Stainless Steel, Grade 2 Titanium, Alloy 360 Brass or colored Copolymer. The handle replaces the stock handle. These parts are not stocked, I make each one from scratch when you order it (same with all my shifter parts).
IMPORTANT: The rear end of the handle might not sit against the boot exactly like the orignial handle. You may want to consider getting a custom brake boot made to cover up the lower edge of the handle. Copolymer handles are thicker than the metal version (for extra strength) and will not fit inside the original boot.
Remove the stock handle using a blow dryer (or heat gun) to soften up the glue holding the handle in place. Then use a strap wrench to twist it back and forth while pulling up to work it off the metal handle. Slide the new handle on (slot facing down) and position the screws so one is facing up and the others are on each side (no screws on the bottom because the metal arm is slotted on the bottom). Gently but firmly tighten the 3 screws (don't overdo it). Then slide the boot over the screws. Install e-brake button (I recommend getting a new matching one from me at the same time).
