right call me thick but what do you mean by sand lightly ? do you mean on top of where the bolts go ?

and then spray wd40 in the holes ?

the bit were the pad goes on, when you push the lever it should come out, were the pad holds, sand that, REALLY bad explaination but yeah.

The olives don't come off, you'll need new ones which are compressed onto the brake line as you tighten the shroud nut into the lever.

As for the barbed fittings. Get two bits of wood. Clamp them together and drill a smallish hole (At least 1mm smaller than the brake line) into where the blocks of wood touch so half the hole is in each block. Separate the blocks and clamp the brake line into this slot with about 1cm sticking out, wipe a bit of brake fluid onto the barbs on the fitting and tap it into the brake line with a hammer.
