Question about 2004 Kia Optima
How do I take out the center consol of my 2004 KIA Optima? I need to get under the emergency brake handle to get out a chain that fell under it.
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.

if you can some how manage to get it opened, spray some lubracant on the button inside the door. if not you'll need to replace the release cable.

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
