ST parking brake lever on SE

Sorry if this has been discussed - I got one of these on the cheap. Can it be installed on my se ? Maybe if a trim panel is swapped from an ST? Thanks

Elwood, do you have a low line center console or the side by side cup holder high line center console? If you have the high line it should go on. It would just be a matter of attaching it properly

hey man yeah its the low line with the cup holders running vertical with the car. Think at least 2 of the console panels possibly more would need to be changed to make it work

You might need to get the whole console then man, cause that goes through the base of the center.

3 things.
1-My wife's car, which is a 2013 SE Sport have this park brake handle so it is not ST specific.
2-I had this park brake handle in my ST and hated it because it was always rubbing on my knee.
3-My 2014 came with a shorter handle with no silver trim. I don't rub my knee anymore on it.

We know it's not ST specific, we were just discussing what it'd take to install it. I've honestly never heard of anyone rubbing their knee on it before, you must be really tall lol.
Your 2014 is like mine and the OP's, low line center console, in line cup holders and semi hidden e-brake.

Also OP, you would probably need the e-brake cables used in the other models as well. I've heard the high line versions have longer cables.

My cup holder are the same that in the ST3, side by side. In fact My SE have the same center console than my ST3 had.
