The push-in button in the front of my emergency hand brake handle has gone too far in. The button and braking still work, it's just that I have to squeeze my thumb in a bit to disengage the hand brake.
Has this happened to anyone, and is there a fix to this to bring the button back towards the front?

Thanks in advance

This has happened to me; strangely after I leaned on the handbrake for too long to... eh... take care of business.
I never found a way to get it undone though.


Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...

what your doing is pulling your handle too hard when u r setting it so what u gotta do now is just ggrip the actual handle tight and pull it back not up just so that the button sticks out more. hope this helps.
