installing replacement campy ergo hoods...

how do i do this... they are the RE500s, the pre 98 style ergo shift hoods... and i cant figure out how to get them around the brifter, from any direction... do i need to remove the brake lever? any hints? help? or am i doing it right just not pushing/pulling/yanking/cursing hard enough?

One trick that works well on hoods to get them off pretty easily is to spray some isoprop alc under them to make them slick and the same to get them back on.

i never replaced hoods on a newer generation ergo lever...but the O.G. pointy-head hoods were a little annoying to replace...i did a fair share of those in a shop.
