When i got in my car this morning i saw that the rubber thing by the E-Brake had fallen inside the hole. I went to kia and they told me they would have to order me a whole new center console plastic because the nipples (yes that is what he called it) that hold the rubber piece on there all had broken. these nipples are no larger than .7 inch lead from a pencil. Kinda ghetto how the peice is held in there. Anyways kia guy told me its under warranty and should hopefully be here in two weeks. Sorry about the messy car

Happened to me too.. I think they changed the material on the new ones. Open your console and remove the access cover on the bottom- I bet you'll find the metal retainer for that rubber piece.

It seems like KIA is true with their products tho. I accidently pressure wash the paint if the silver plastic on the wheel and they covered that.

just tell them you went through an automatic car wash and thats what happened. now i do only have 5000 miles on the car after 8 months. so i dont know if that helped or not. but lesson learned. do not wash your dirty rims with a pressure washer lol.

Happened to me. There's a thread for warranty issues btw.. Anyways it took me a little over 2 months to get the part in. They're replacing the ENTIRE center console just for the one stupid rubber piece. It takes a while for that piece to come in.... Trust me...
