    Whilst ths product is easy to fit and is a direct replacement for the original part, in my opinion it needs to be redesigned. This is the third time I have had to replace the lever on my lawnmower as it splits at the pivot point making it impossible to start the mower. Thankfully they are not too expensive to replace but the manufacturers need to give some thought to strengthening the lever at this weak point. The service from eSpares is excellent meaning the replacement part arrives quickly.

      As Jimdee says, if you look down the side of where the round part of the handle fits over the 'spindle' on the outer casing, you'll see a tiny 'nipple' that you can push in with a screwdriver as you ease off the handle.

      Yes, the old handle is well bedded in and needs a gentle lever out with a flat bladed screwdriver. Also, watch out for the spring loaded red safety button on the positioning lever. Keep your free hand over it when you lever the old lever off just in case it bounces off and is lost.

      The outer casing has a little "nipple" which engages with the cylinder part of the lever and you should gently with a screwdriver prise outwards the casing to allow the cylinder to come up and out of the pillar on which it rotates.

  • Q Am I missing a part? 1 Answer

    Tried installing replacement lever handle. When in closed position the handle presses against a thin metal strip and causes it to arc, but this does not appear to touch anything else to complete the circuit and so start the mower. Is there another metal strip/contact I should have? Has something dislodged? Any advice would be useful.
