Magura RT6 TT leaver change

I am trying to replace Magura RT6 TT leaver but not sure how to remove the old one. There seems to be one bolt thats holding it in place but cant figure out the way how to remove it. Anyone had similiar issue ?

Its not a bolt - its a pressed in pin. you have to use a parallel drift or a press to push it out (right to left I think) - the new lever you get will come with instructions.

On the bike-discount.de website there is an exploded view of the assembly.

Are you talking about the expansion plug? I can't speak to the Magura's specifically but usually said plug is actuated by a bolt that's in line with the plug. Maybe someone else can chime in but, IIRC, I *think* you have to turn the bolt the opposite direction of intuition (right to loosen instead of tighten... it's been a while since I've messed with brake levers).

what he said

the pin goes in both directions, FYI (i think).

It worked. But the pin did not go in both directions it was from left to right (from bikers perspective). when putting back the pin has to go from right to left it doesn't fit if you do it other way round.
