2002 E430 parking break issue

Hello all, love this car. Only one way to discribe it, it's a ROCKET SHIP! I due most of my own maintenance the basic stuff. Change pads, roters, bleed brake lines, engine oil and filter, air filter.

Just have one issue, the parking brake. The ratchet mechanism quit working. Does not make the clicking sound anymore but the brake still works. I can put my finger on the plastic part that makes the noise, it turns freely. I assume it is held in place by a spring or mayby some type of housing. No broken parts on the floor mat.

How can I fix this. Thanks.

Greg H.
