    Shimano Deore BR-M486 Hydraulic Disc lever removal and replacement

    Anyone have any idea how to remove/replace the brake lever from a Shimano Deore BR-M486 brake set? I have a Scott Aspect 20 (2010) that my son rides around. He crashed today and broke the brake lever in half. I'd prefer to replace just the brake lever if possible, rather than the entire brake set. Anyone have any ideas on how to remove the lever, and where to buy a replacement?

    You can't just replace the level handle, you have to replace the entire handle assembly, so you just undo the line fitting, remove from bars, replace and bleed.
