You know the lidded cubby in the center console, put your hand on the inside of the cubby itself and lift up. It comes right out as though you are supposed to lift it out to clean it. When you look in you can see under the cupholders and under the emergency brake. =) Hope you find your bracelet!

Should be screws hidden under plugs that are the same color as the plastic. Try to remove cup holder etc there should be little pop outs. I will check on one of the kias in the lot. send me a response so I can put you at the top of the list.

SOURCE: 2004 KIA Optima LX timing belt/water pump

The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

BRAKE PROBLEM


When was the last time you had brake work done? The most common answers would be you need new brake pads or you need to have the brake system flushed and filled. If these two things have been done recently, you may consider replacing the rotors. It is unlikely that the back brakes are the issue since you do most of your braking with the fronts. Out of curiosity, is the emergency brake light permanently lit on your dash?
