broken parking brake handle?

The pushbutton on the parking brake handle in my 94 Legacy wagon broke a while back. The brake itself still works fine but does not stay up when you lift it. The clicking sound doesnt happen either. Since then, I've been propping it up using a copy of my kids "Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see?" book. It fits perfectly, bettee than the ice scaper I used the day it broke. (if you have kids, you'll know what brown bear is, if not, don't worry about it.)

How do I take the handle apart? Has anyone had this happen before? Will I need to replace the entire cable or just part of the handle? Anyone with a parts car want to help me out. (I can post this in the Marketplace later, once I figure out what I'll need.)
