The Handbrake handle ring i.e. falls off, is lost, broken or other.

We offer a Genuine MINI Handbrake Handle With Chrome ring for around £24 e-bay link to this item below:

THIS IS THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN BUY THE CHROME RING END PIECE
THAT FALLS OFF


Fitting:

Take the end bit off and there are a couple of clips which need to be lifted away from the handbrake itself so that the cover can slide off.
The gaitor is held on with a small cable tie which isn't done up tight and you can just about edge it off the existing handbrake handle.

Reverse procedure to refit.

It's hard to explain, but once you attempt if you'll see what I mean.

After looking at an old hand grip, it seems there is only one clip at the front.

I took a picture of it to show you what I mean featured below.

Arrow 1 points to the bit you need to lift up (use a small screwdriver) it will just look like a bit of plastic from the top.

Arrow 2 shows the bit that clips down into the shaft. i.e. you need to lift it so that it clears the handbrake shaft. 

The whole thing should then slide forward.

Yes take the end bit off first.
