Center Console Removal

Iím sure this has been covered before, but I canít find specific instructions for it. Iíve managed to remove all of the screws and bolts that hold the center console on, and I have the leather dust catcher around the shift knob removed, but I just canít figure out how to remove the knob itself! I have a 2014 Kia Cadenza. Iíve tried pushing the shift button in a pulling up, but it wonít budge. Is there another way?

Everything about Kia's online says, with the parking brake on, put it in Drive and pull straight up. Just go to Youtube, there are several videos.

Iíve checked youtube and google and there doesnít seem to be anything on the Cadenza. Iíve tried pulling straight up but I havenít put it in drive before. Thanks!

Unfortunately that didnít work, iíve tried it in every shift position, at times trying to depress the shift button simultaneously. Iíve probably used upwards of 40lbs of force without success. Is there a special way to get this off?

Out of curiosity what is your endgame by removing center console ? some times one can solve the problem by working backwards and possibly the solution to your endgame might be elsewhere . Just my thoughts and two cents worth. As a default ask your service advisor ??>

There is a constant and obnoxious creaking/rattling sound coming from both the tray and somewhere beneath it. iím hoping to remove the center console to see if I can stabilize the creaking parts, or add some foam/sound deadening to get rid of it. Iím going to tackle it again this weekend, and I might have to ask the dealership if worst comes to worst.
