Brabus has improved the design of the handbrake for the fortwo 451. It is now easier to install and looks more impressive than its predecessor. It will also fit the fortwo 450. You can order a handbrake under the part number: A4514200112C55U.

Before continuing, ensure that you have parked in reverse as you will be releasing the handbrake.

In order to fit the Brabus handbrake, the plastic one needs to be removed.

Unscrew the button on the end.

Remove the retaining plastic lug from under the handle. This is a bit tricky and you will end up destroying the lug in the process! If you cannot see a lug on the underside, then you have a new version of the handbrake. This type has a barb which doesn't allow the handbrake to be removed easily. For this type, you will have to carefully cut off the plastic handle.

Slide the handle off the handbrake arm.

Now fit the rubber band that comes with the Brabus handbrake.

Slide on the Brabus handle. Check that both grub screws are fully open.

Tighten both grub screws ensuring that the handle remains straight (and not twisted).

Turn the leather gaiter inside out and slide over the handle.

Secure with the rubber band.

Turn the leather gaiter the correct way.

Tuck the excess into the carpet.

Screw on the end button to complete the installation.

Test operation and then admire a very sleek accessory.
