|Monkeygrits||Im in the same boat as you but if I put the pad at the right spot on the console, my lower leg right below my knee can lean on it, keeping my knee off the handle.|

I've had knee surgery and the "sensitive" part of my knee rests just about on the release button of the brake handle. I did check this out on test drives and decided since this is my daily commuter, trips are short so it's not a huge issue. But if someone makes a decent cover, I'll be checking that out. Thaks for the links.
Edit; had a look and those pads aren't the answer for me; my leg bends at the console so these won't really adddress the issue I have.

|Monkeygrits||Just make sure you realize the triangular pad is one inch thick and the rectangular one is 1/2 inch thick. Im gonna sit in the car and see where my leg will sit.|

|glutch||I am with you on the knee issue. I am 6'10" and my knee sits right on the emergency brake. Thanks for the link I will be ordering one of the pads tonight.|

|Monkeygrits||Its not a problem if your legs are straight and not bent at all. Im not sitting close but I am 6'3". Seat is back as far as it will go. I have plenty of room but if you go on a long trip, being able to rest you leg against the console is a plus. The way my leg is right now it barely touches the ebrake handle. That half inch pad would take care of it.|

|BlueIce||How close are people sitting that this is such a big problem?|

Console Leg Pad
Just wondering if anyone has installed one in their focus? My knee touches the end of the e-brake handle which i can already see is gonna get uncomfortable on a long ride.
