First time I pulled up ebrake, plastic cracked

The plastic covering the ebrake area popped up and cracked when I pulled up the brake. I guess I yanked it too hard or something. Has this ever happened before. I have a 2010 LE, is it covered under warranty?

Thanks,
Nick

yes and yes. its a poor design and flexes way too much even with brittle plastic- and this is half due to the fact you have to lift the e brake handle to the highest notch since the e brake sucks no matter how many times you have it adjusted...unfortunately..

Thank you invictusmaneo. I assume that it will happen every time even after I fix it, so I have to be really really gentle.

I may have to sell my beloved Evora due to job cuts So i want to make sure its in good shape for the next buyer
