The handle on the emergency brake release broke off. Is it necessary to replace the entire cable or can the handle itself be replaced?

The plastic handle on the brake release broke off and now I must pull the release

There is a separate assembly for the plastic handle. It has a short cable attached to it. There should be a part number on the handle. You can order a new handle/cable assembly from your GM dealer. All of this work can be accomplished in the cab of the truck.
