    Actually it's pressed into the handle.

    Pressed, welded or stamped.....heat gun will not loosen it correct?

    You’re correct. The only way to remove it is to drill it out.

    It is press-fit +.0005"
    A heat gun will not help, a propane torch will but you'll damage or discolor the anodization.
    why do you need to remove it?
    It does not show up as a seperate part.
    If you set up a little press jig in your vice with a 1/4", 1/4" drive deep socket you can probably drive it out with a small drift punch after SLOWLY heating it up.
    (the oven works very well for this)

    07028A83-2C2C-429B-8912-878B7FB87A65.jpeg Sorry I was at work so didn’t spend enough time to reply the way I should. I am trying to take out this TBar out and I used too much Loctie (years ago) so I need to HeatGun it but I know the heat will transfer to “that part” I am asking about.....so if it’s glued on, I am worry heatgun will soften that part as well.
    I guess I can heat gun the $hit out of it now:p

    aluminum will expand faster and more than the stainless steel shaft.
    heat it up, apply a good penetrant and let it cool.
    re heat and get the vice grips back out.
    prob. gonna f*** up the handle part cosmetically, though.

    Odds are not more than a .006 press fit so it's possible to press it out cold but I would pop it in the oven at 180F for a minute or so to allow the aluminum to expand some. Since the aluminum will expand faster than the SS shaft the heat should make it easier. Some type of press would be optimum, hydraulic, air etc.

    Can you fit a screw extractor through the handle bar to remove that stubborn screw inside?

    Well, I do not know what would loosen up a loctite. But if I’m in your situation, I would have 3 ways of removing that. First is to tightly wrap the silver shaft with a wide rubber band (much like the ones they use in the lab to wrap around your arm when they draw blood) then grasp it with a vise-grip while you turn the knob. If that doesn’t work, try the second way by carefully filing two flat surfaces where the blue arrow points so you can hold it with an open end wrench while you turn the knob. If that doesn’t work, grab the shaft with a vise-grip (just tight enough to bite without deforming it) while you turn the knob. This will leave marks on the shaft that you may have to sand later. Good luck!

    OK I got a little sideways on this. To take care of the locktite soak the assembly in MEK overnight and in the morning it shouldn't be locked tight anymore.

    I don’t quite remember:(.... been awhile ..... let me try with the bottle of acetone for now cos I couldn’t find the MEK that Kim suggested stores near me.
    Maybe soak it in a container and Saran Wrap hoping that acetone will not dry as fast

    Berryman's B-12 carb cleaner ( about 6 bucks a can)will work on the blue loctite.
    red, I don't know.
    you're on the right track, though.
    maybe no loctite next time..?
