To stop the engine you pull the stop. Only yesterday when I did just that, the whole panel came right out. The panel itself was brittle and the corners (where the panel was screwed in) just broke off.
Maybe you should try to remedy the root cause also. The stop wire needs to be lubricated now and then else it will become hard to pull. The stop lever on the engine needs almost no force to be moved...
