I'm trying to rebuild the brakes on my 1991 Coupe Quattro.

I have removed the piston and seals.  I have removed the spring for the
E-Brake Mechanism and the bolt holding the spring.

Now I need to remove the actual E-brake actuating lever.  HOW do I do this?

Mikes web page shows some contraption with a socket but has no text
explaining what you actually do with this?  Also not sure what he used 1/2
Hose for.   And I"m assuming the circlip WAY down inside has to come out?
My Circlip pliers cant even get close to that unit so I'll have to shop

Anyhow, hoping someone can point me in the write direction from here.  Once
I remove that Circlip "if needed" then will this free the E-brake Mechanism
to pop out.  As it is the E-Brake arm is out about 1/2" but wont come all
the way out and I don't want to pry it to hard.
