    Handbrake button cap broke off

    So I came into my car this morning and realized the plastic button cap on the parking brake has broken off. I can still push the button in and lower the lever to disengage the brake, but now it's an uncomfortable metal piece that I'd rather get covered. Has this happened to anybody and does anybody know where I could find the piece? I'll post a picture later if you don't know what I'm talking about but it's just a small plastic cap piece about the size of an average big toe.

    Okay thanks for the advice. I was hoping there would be a way to avoid going to a dealer (because the nearest one is in a busy part of town), but I will do that for sure. I will correct myself though the inside is really just a hard plastic rather than metal. I'll make it work until I get to a dealer. Here are a couple pictures for anybody curious what I meant exactly.

    So wait....Doesn't it just snap right back in? Im sure you tried that though, doesnt make sense that it popped out but wont pop back in lol. There are other ways to get it to stay in there but I dont think they would look as nice as a dealer actually fixing the problem.

    ^yeah!

    I would think that you can pop it right back in, unless a tab(s) broke and it won't.

    Looks like it's a 100 dollar part... time for a trip to the dealer.
    Save a trip, call the dealer and see if they will order the part first.

    Make sure the dealer has the interior color code, so they order the correct part.

    Part#: 47105-TR0-P81ZB
    lever assy., parking brake *nh571l*
    Color: (BRIGHT SILVER)
    Emission: KA - US Market Spec
    Origin: CN1
    001 $109.13

    I found it for $80 just by googling the part number....but damn, that's A LOT! Better off taking a trip to the dealer, I'm sure it's a warranty item.

    Exactly, 80$ for a little tiny button is crazy im sorry. But on the other hand if they dont do it for you you could always try and do it yourself.
