    Well, the wife's only gone and lost the handbrake button out of the top of the handle, so I'm left with this little needle that pierces the end of my thumb every time I use the handbrake.

    Is this button replaceable, or do I have to change the bloody handle? Looked in the footwell and all sorts, but can't see the button anywhere. Anybody know where to get a replacement?

    You can get the whole unit second hand for about £15 on the various second hand market places, would certainly consider this rather than paying the resiculas cost of a new one if you don’t find the button.

    Seems we think on the same wave length. However, I've used an Allen captive nut that was just hanging in my toolbox. Used some Tiger seal to put it on and just going to leave it overnight. I'll put a pic up if it works.

    Just been using some of that tiger sealant this afternoon for first time sticking rear door back together
