There is a bulletin for this problem
Some 2002 MY X-TYPE vehicles within the above VIN range may experience a progressive increase in the travel of the parking brake lever.
The progressive increase in travel may be caused by a deterioration of the parking brake lever internal clutch mechanism. The angle at which the clutch engages increases over time due to initial setting of lever components, initial wear and clutch spring elongation. To rectify this concern, a clip should be installed to the clutch spring stop.
On a customer complaint basis only, follow the workshop procedure outlined below.
1. Open hood, fit fender protectors.
2. Remove battery cover, disconnect battery.
3. Remove floor console (see Workshop Manual, JTIS CD ROM, section: 501-12, SRO 76.25.01).
Note: Make sure the parking brake lever is in the off position.
