Just struggled to get the handbrake grip off, eventually did it by wrapping strips of towelling round it as protection and then using some large water pump pliers.
What I discovered would have made it much easier had I known, mine was only glued in one spot not the entire grip. The photos show it was only glued on top at the back, this adhesion could probably have been broken with a small screwdriver or similar saving a lot of bother. The back of the grip also has two flats (hidden by the flaps) which could possibly be utilised with a large adjustable spanner.
Mine is a 2002 135 with a leather grip and this may not apply to other years/models.

No just changing the very tatty gaiter which was why I wanted the grip off intact, besides there's only one d*ck allowed in my car and he drives it.
Might change to a wooden knob though, I remember last winter changing gear with an oven glove on!
