Removing handbrake surround

Oof, just dropped the lid of my tiny USB stick down the hole at the front of the handbrake!
The handbrake seems to be working as normal but I'd rather get it out than leave it in.
Has anyone ever had to remove the plastic around the handbrake? If so, is it easy or are there any tips that'd help?

NB it's a 4x4 if the setup is different to other models.

Thanks a lot, M

Re: Removing handbrake surround

I managed to get it off. For info you just need to pinch the 2 sides of the front of the surround to unclip then lift from the front as if it was hinged at the rear then slide backwards.

Can't reach the lid though, might need some blu-tak on the end of a coat hanger or something similarly technical.

Cheers, M
