My pal at work has a 2003 accord pushing 270k miles. It keeps putting along but not without some standard issues for a beat car with a lot of miles.

A few weeks ago the button for the automatic shifter popped out, so now you have to get your finger in there and find the shifter’s G spot in order to change gears.

Most recently he used the handbrake...and now it’s on forever. I have not tried anything yet. He has tried driving it around the lot to no avail. I’m not sure weather its discs or drums in the back, but I’m suspecting drums.

Any suggestions?
