Kiatechinfo.com will get you all the information you need when working on a kia 2nd only to a chiltons or haynes manual.

For kiatechinfo.com register (its free) then select the information for your car make model engine. Then either do a search for timing belt or pick from proper items in cloumn to the left.

Using this will be far more beneficial than me describing how to change it.


You can pull carpet back from inside the trunk there should either be thumb screws (black wing nuts) or actual screws you have to take out. The kiatechinfo will help

My left turn signal was flashing fast. I checked bulb in back left. Turn signal good but bulb below it was out. I changed that one but turn signal still flashing fast. all other bulbs look good. ??


If the front and rear bulbs flash fast also, replace the hazard switch or you could live with it. As they are working. If one doesn't work, check grounds. I just run a new ground, much easier than cutting open the harness to find the break.

My front turn signals keep going out and when i changed the bulb the light doesnt flash it just stays on


Please check if you have the correct part number bulbs? The front and rear bulbs are dual filiment, one for the signal and the other smaller one is a running light. If the bulb you have are correct, does your 4 way flasher function work and or left turn signal work? If the remaining rear flash ok, then your flasher unit is OK. You can also check the bulb running light by turning on the headlights. You might have a faulty or incorrect bulb if it does not light up.

I just recently had he same problem with mine. I replaced the front right turn signal bulb, but after a week of it working correctly, my wife complained that the turn signal did a double time fast flash. I found the rear bulb signal/ brake bulb was out as well. So I decided to purchase a dual pack bulb set and replace both the rear brake/signal bulbs (bulb number 4135) Your auto part store person can look up the correct number for the bulb brand you choose for the van. Since all the bulbs are about the same age and wear, I would recommend replaceing all of yours. Good luck.

All need is to replace the rear turn signal bulb. Can't figure how to get to it


Ok... To replace the turn signal bulbs what you will need to do is open your trunk and there will be like a felt or carpeting against the rear of the car... Pull it back a bit and you will see i believe it is 2 or 3 nuts... they are like a goldish colour... remove those and push your taillight assembly out and there you have your bulbs...

Removing burned out turn signal bulb


Open the trunk, look for the wires running to the turn signal, it will usually twu\ist out or allow for entire turn signal box to be removed.
