Many thanks for your help.
You're right, it is a lot of fuss. I'm just going to replace the 'end bit' - the actual lever, which as you say just involves removing the pivot bolt to the right of the lever adjuster.
I've had this bike for a year now and, after biking on London streets for nearly 35 years, it is easily the best I've ever owned. The downside is that it's very hands-off in terms of ongoing maintenance and servicing, but overall I'd rather have this bike than not.
