Timing Belt Rio 2006 (Removal for 1.6L engines: ONLY 2006 CARS)
This is the same information that us Kia techs use to diagnose vehicles. Lots of useful information. For your particular vehicle, lookup a 2003 for the timing belt information. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

yes, this is VERY IMPORTANT, this is an interference engine, meaning the valves and the piston cannot be in the same place at the same time,or it will bend the valves.then you are looking at a major repair job,think or it as insurance on your engine. please rate my fix as i strive to be the best,questions,get back to me

Take it to a professional with experience on your vehicle. Give them the new belt. This is a common mistake people make and it is not a job for first timer

i myself went through a process close to this with my 2003 Kia Rio. The bearing on my rear drivers side welded itself to the spindle. meaning everything except my brake assembly and the drumb had to be replaced. after getting a new spindle and bearings grease and oil seals i put it back togother. two days later i started to have the problem again. the thing is you cant tighten the lock nut too much its something an experianced wheele worker has to do its all about how it feels when you tighten it, everything still needs to have room to move like the bearings for example, if the lock nut is to tight they wont spin youll end up losing alot more than just bearings again if its put togother wrong. 2nd when you work with bearings when you do one side you do the other, dont want to replace half a set of moving parts, and chances are if one bearing is going out the other one will follow closely. 3rd make sure you have enough grease in there, not enough will resault in friction and heat. remember everything needs room to move good luck
