2006 Handbrake cover snapped.

My handbrake cover has snapped on my 2006. Is this a common occurrence? Not found anything on here about it.

Can i use a later models handbrake plastic cover on the 2006 to stop this happening again? cheers

Yep it's a common occurrence. Most people either source a new plastic handbrake trim or glue it all back together with something like Gorilla Glue... As far as I know any 8G cover will fit but not the 9G or later.

Has anyone managed to find a source of reasonable looking trim covers to save having to replace the whole ratchet + handle assembly?
