I was hoping to adjust the the parking brake on my 02 outback today, I don't think it's been tightened up before.

Having some trouble getting the center console / armrest out though, I removed the 5 screws that I can see, and everything is loose, but I can't pull the back half off. Is there another screw I missed, or do I have to pull the whole section with the cupholders and around the shifter off first?

Thanks for the help!

If it's similar to the older models, then yes, you need to get the panel around the gearstick off first :rolleyes:

Yup, spoke to one of the mechanics today, apparently I have to pop loose the plastic wood trim around the shifter, pop some pins for the center console and pry that up. Guess I'll have a go at it this weekend, fun fun!
