How do I remove the center console in a 2005 KIA Sportage

I need to adjust the parking brake in my Kia Sportage. How do I remove the center console so I may make the adjustment from there? I have had the brakes checked by a mechanic and am told they are okay, so he tells me it is just a manner of adjustment. As long as I know how to remove the center console I am capable of making the adjustment myself, however I don't want to end up damaging the center console so I would like to be sure on how to remove it before I proceed.

Thanks,
Henry

The park brake is the same on all vehicles. Usually on the driver side when you follow the cable, there will be an adjuster in the middle of the line. Turn to the right to tighten and left to loosten.

SOURCE: 06 kia sportage airbag control module

If your refering to the light on top of the dash that says "psgr air bag not connected" here;s the deal.

The module is activated when someone sits in the seat. Turn the key on and the notification will light. Go around to the psgr side of the car and sit in the seat and the light should go out.

How do i adjust e brake on 2006 kia rio


The Kia Rios (assuming yours is equipped with rear disc brakes) utilize a system that incorporates the parking brake into the rear calipers. What this means is there really isn't a way to adjust the brake itself, since it is part of your rear service brake. If you really wanted to you could adjust the cable at the parking brake lever. This would more than likely require removing your center console to get to it. The problem is if you over adjust, you will cause constant contact between the rear pads and the disc, causing premature padwear. You really shouldn't ever need to adjust the parking brake, but if your really wanted to, that would be how to do it.
