Still having trouble locating this 14mm bolt / cover. It's not easy to see what I'm doing. I can see 2 rubbery tube things with caps.. thought I might find a bolt in there but no luck. I can see where the handbrake cable comes in (looks a bit like a bicycle break) and the arm that moves when when you pull the cable. Still can't see this 14mm bolt. Could you be bothered to give a really detailed description of exactly where it is .. in the middle / top / bottom.. just beside the cable / break pipe / whatever?? That beer's starting to look good.
