The handbrake sleeve connects to a plastic cover which extends maybe 15cm on the side of the central tunnel, and this part no longer stays in place. I can see that some plastic inside that central tunnel has broken off so it is no use to replace the handbrake sleeve. It can keep the cover in place because there is more than one hook where it clicks in place but as soon as I actually use it it easily comes loose. Do you have any suggestions about how to handle it? Maybe loosen the sleeve somewhat? I think it's too tight. Odd though. Maybe the cable has stretched/needs a longer pull and I pull up the brake one click more than before?
Just keep it pointed in the general direction you want to go

Update: mechanic has tightened the cable somewhat near the handle and when it comes in for maintenance end of the month he'll adjust the brake at the wheels. So the handbrake lever doesn't raise as high as before.
