Question R75 Handbrake Button

I have a slight problem with the chrome release button on the handbrake, it's slightly loose and sometimes rattles

Any one know how to tighten it up? It doesn't turn so looks like its a screw on the inside somewere.

I don't know; it's a 52 reg, so it's under warranty I take it?

Back to dealer!

If it's a pain to do then I'll take it in.

If its just a 5 minute job it's less hassle to do it myself than booking it in and sorting time off work etc.

The handbrake section rubber surround does just snap out so you should be able to get to all of the 'bits' on the inside and tighten the button from there. Its held in only by a few clips.

Can't be hard to get off cos' MGR only charge a few quid labour on the wooden handbrake grip replacement & you know what there charges are normally like
