Ah yes, these are usually unpleasant to remove. What usually works for me is to use a pair of pump pliers, or similar grips, to squeeze the lever arm towards the end of the spindle. You position one jaw on the end of the spindle, and the other on the side of the plastic arm that's further from the spindle, and squeeze. As soon as it moves, it will get easier.If you want to file off the modules on the spindle first, it can help.Sometimes they don't move, and then I just hacksaw the plastic arm off. They don't put up much of a fight against a saw blade :-)
