hi there Cliff , Ok heres my procedure , you are better fitting a new handle as well because it usally breaks when you remove it ,

 

1 , remove the seat cushion base ( this is held by 2 x 10mm bolts )

2 , then unhook the little metal rods at both sides ( these are connected to levers that dissengage the seat) ( tilt)

3 , unhook the seat back cover at the bottom with a small flat screwdriver and Roll the seat back cover half way up the seat ,

4 , pull the handle upward ( it is very tight and will probably break )

5 , once handle is removed turn the tilt cable holder a half turn and remove the tilt cables upward from the TOP ,

6, re-fit the cables from the TOP downward and re connect every thing ,

7 , when every thing is fitted you just need to push the handle into the gap and it will fit the cable itself to the handle ,

 

this can be quite an akward job if you havent done one before ,

if you need any more help let me know

regards Brian
