Parking Brake Cover Keeps Getting Bumped Off

Our parking brake plastic cover gets bumped off by our dog who travels between the front seats. We can't even just blame the dog as we have both done it as well on multiple occasions. Does anyone else have this problem and has come up with a fix?

Yes to having the same problem.

My solution was simple. When I took the van in for it’s A service MB replaced the cover as a warranty item. I realize that doesn’t help you much....

(There is a plastic attachment nub that had failed, I was thinking velcro would be part of my solution. If it happens again I will investigate further.)

same problem here... although that was quick thinking to blame it on the dog.

i just popped it back on and so far we haven't seen it happen again. velcro might be a good answer.

I had the same problem on my 2012 Sprinter. My solution was to put the cover in the garage so I never knock it off again.
