HI all does anyone know where I can get a cover for the handle assembly?
Mine get real hot after about an hour of running.
Not the top by the button, but by the floor.
Anyone else have this issue?
Thanks as always.

I bought one on eBay made of silicone “rubber” a couple years ago for my 453. Check there.

No, sorry. Just do a search on eBay for smart 451 parts and accessories.

Edit: just did an eBay search and didn’t turn up one.

Only saw metal covers at Smart Madness and that wouldn’t work for the issue the O.P. has.

THANKS ALL
I will try to shield the warmth of the handle adding some heat to the cab. I guess my main concern was why it got warm in the 1st place.

Again Thanks to all and jwight for the all the updates to what sounds like a older issue.
I recently added a sunroof on my 2008 and with that open is when I noticed the hot handbrake issue.
No other smells of oil, just a warm handle closest to the floor. I'm looking into a cover. Thanks for the links

I had a silicone (orange) E brake cover from wish that faded from the sun real quick on my 453.
I went with leather covers on my 450s'.

These guys have a lot of leather interior coverings, but this search is for a 451 e brake cover:
