mine were a bit long, thats the only reason i decided to remove the acc pedal altogether and install it that way then shave off the longated screws with a dremel. then i put mine back on.

You are in for a treat if you want to get off the old black button. I managed to get mine off last night, but it took me about an hour to do it. After pulling off the old black handle I tried with all my might to pull off the black button. That didn't work so I tried pounding it out with a screwdriver. Still no luck there so I put vice grips on it and tried yanking it off that way. No go still so I kept yanking with the vice grips and eventually I yanked out the button AND the rod that it was attached to. I was like, oh ****, and my ebrake no longer clicked up and stayed in the up posotion. The black button was still attached to the rod though (I have pics of the rod but not here at work, I will post them tonight when I get home). I tried everything I could think of to pull off the button and nothing worked and I ended up bending the hell out of the rod. I ended up drilling/melting off the button with a dremel (I have pics of this as well and will post them tonight). The button is held on by grooves in the metal rod so it would take a lot of force to pull it off. After finally getting the button off I put the new chrome button on and it didn't fit very snug but it works. I straightened out the rod as best I could before attempting to put everything back together.

To put the everything back together stick the rod into the brake handle and pound it into place. Attach the chrome button and then slide over the new brake handle. Check to make sure that your brake clicks up and actually holds or something is not right. Attach the leather boot to the brake handle and then screw the handle in and make it secure. That should do it if you put everything together correctly. Here are some pictures I took this morning with my cheap camera to show what it looks like with the chrome button installed. Good luck

Here are some pictures of what the ebrake button is attached to, a rod with a semicircle on inside end. It just pulls out of the rest of the brake and it attached by pushing it back in. As you can see, there isn't much left of my old black plastic button but I couldn't get it off any other way. You can see that the metal rod has notches in it to hold the button in place.
