Default 2001 Camry Parking Brake - Button Broke?

Ok, strange question: :!:

I put on the parking brake on my wife’s 2001 Camry the other day, and
the button used to release/set the brake broke off into my hand. 8O

Does anyone know where to get a replacement button (or any other part
used to fix it) / and/or how to take out the p-brake to replace it?
Without that button, I have no ability to set the brake, and the
transmission is taking all the load. I can pull up the handle, but
nothing is keeping it there (catching the teeth on the p-brake gear)

Thoughts? Suggestions? Any help would be appreciated.

Default Re: 2001 Camry Parking Brake - Button Broke?

For my girlfriends 82 toyota cressida the button broke off. Then I
replaced it with one from the junkyard and the plastic button broke
off. On the cressida there is like a threaded metal rod so I got a 2
inch long wooden dowel, drilled a hole to accept thread and just
screwed it in and it has worked fine for many months now.
