I can't ask a question, explanation seems perfect. Thanx beast for the how to. Im getting the stuff right now from DX!! I will keep u update. Again, thanx!!!
Lol thanks... He's always stealing my spot!I love it.. And the big dude that stole your chair..
I know...and it is a great idea! I just had to laugh because all the thieves out there are gonna know where to look if they break into a Kia Forte.Lol I know I know. But If someone wants to search a forte forum and track me down to steal my $150 iPod then that's ok. I would give it to them for the effort. Lol
besides that's what insurance is for. I am sacrificing my hiding spot for the good of all the members. Lol.
Here you go..... let me know if you have any questions..
DealExtreme: $5.82 Dock Extender Data/Charging Cable for All iPod/iPhone 2G/3G/3GS - Black (80CM) Only needed 1 of this to make it all the way...
here is the kia ipod cable
run the cable in and down this seam and then along the bottom, i just stuck it up there with my fingers ( i took out this screw to make it a tad easier)
Run it along the bottom to the very back side of the center post
Now you will need to open your center console and remove your bottom felt cover or whatever you want to call it and you should see the E brake mechanisms.
Remove that bottom (Above) and you should see this..
If you take your hand and put it down there, you will notice that there is an opening in the bottom side of the center console and you can easily slide the ipod connector up into the center console.
You will want something so that the ipod doesn't fall into the hole and get crushed by the e brake..
I thought of just leaving mine on top of the stock felt thing.. but figured if someone broke in, they are going to look in there and see it and steal it..
So i went to best buy, bought a slip proof mat for $5 and put it on the bottom like this
then i placed the ipod on top of that and then the stock felt thing back on top and this is what it looks like
Hope this helps... took about 15 minutes and cost $10. $5 for the cable extender and $5 for the slip proof mat. No Drilling! Took out 1 screw only.
feel free to ask questions... also posting this in the DIY area.
and .. since i ran outside to get some photos.. i lost my seat to this guy... always taking my stuff
Ebay or Kia has them.Hey great idea but i can't find the cable itself that goes into both the aux port and the usb port any one know were i can get one?
