New Peloton owner here. I was nervous about the seat shifting or dropping while riding, and was apparently overzealous about tightening. (I didn't think I was going too far.) The plastic lever stripped against the metal and it took a saw, pliers, and a good amount of effort to get the thing off in order to install a replacement.

Anyone else run into this issue?

How did you get the screw out? I have tried everything, but have been unable to remove it.

Hi-I have this same issue and can’t get the stripped bolt out. How did you do it?

Use a utility saw and cut the plastic a little ways up the shaft as shown in the photo above. Saw down to the metal stud. Once you make a clean cut all the way around the shaft you can use a pair of vice grips to pull the main part of the handle off, exposing the metal stud. You can then use the vice grips to unscrew the stud and install a new part.
