Trying to remove arrow break hoods so that I can remove break levers and install a new stem. Quick search revealed little other than "use a hair dryer", which I dont have.
So far ive been able to peel them back from the handle bars, and wiggle them off a little so that the top arrow point moves a little behind the arrow hood groove, but not much beyond that.

1. you don't remove brake hoods to remove brake levers.
This link provides instructions on how to install brake levers, so it should be simple to figure out how to remove them.

make sure its unplugged use needle nose pliers and catch the edge of metal and work it around-it will come out even if you have to push the sides inwards on all sides
