Question about Mazda 626
It appears if you remove the pin in the lower in of the handle, you can remove the spring and then re-insert a new button. Try and get this part from a junkyard before the dealership....might be a cheap part from them or maybe they want $50 for it....either way, you should be able to replace this yourself.

You have to loosen the parking brake cables so you can pull the handle up as far as it will go. You may have to take the cables off the handle. When you do this if you look down from the front towards the pivot of the handle you'll see a small lever that can be turned, it has teeth on one end a like a flat ball on the other. Slide down the rod and use a screw driver to spin plate around so the flat ball end goes into the hook of the rod. So as you press the button it will move and unlock from the teeth on the gear that stays in place. Reattach your parking brake cables and adjust and the job will be done.
