My Handbrake handle pulled out??

Does anyone know how the handbrake handle goes back in.

I only put my motor back in on Thursday and the handle pulled straight out in my hand yesterday. I looked like a complete idiot starring at the handle in my hand whilist sitting in my car in at carlovers.

The car is a NC fairlane.

You need to install a new handbrake cable; you will find you have broken the existing one. Not uncommon and not hard to fix albeit a somewhat time consuming task.
