I just changed my brothers on a 2001 kia rio. You have to go from the bottom. There is a tensioning adjustment on the top you have to undo, as well as a bolt on bottom. It is hard to get it out because there is not a lot of room, i remember it hitting either a p/s line or the rack, and being frustrated. I used a floor jack and block of wood under the engine and jacked it up to reposition it. It gave me enough room to get it out. Remove the bottom bolt and disconnect the wiring from it and it should drop out with some effort. Getting it back in was harder. Once you get it back into position connect the wiring before you bolt it up all the way, put the lower bolt in, put the belt on, then back to the adjustment on top. Make sure everything is tight and you should be done.

I just did it and found it fairly easy, after prying the motor forward a fraction of an inch it slides between the motor and steering rack. I suggest taking an angle grinder or something and grind down the lower alternator mount about a quarter of an inch or so to ease the re installation.

SOURCE: need to know how to

on the clutch cylinder , you will see a bleeder valve just like on a brake assembly,, it takes 2 people to do this, One in the car to push the clutch pedal in and release it, One outside to crack open the bleeder, have the person in the car push the pedal down to the floor slowly, as this is being done, the outside person cracks open the bleeder, have the inside person hold the pedal down all the way and not let it come up , the outside person watches the fliud come out of the bleeder, ( hopefully air too ) once it slows, turn the bleeder tight again, then the inside person can let the pedal up, do this 4 or 5 times, to bleed the system or until you see no bubbles come out of the bleeder, if the inside person lets up too soon, you have to start the process over. make sure you keep the fluid level full this should look like yours http://www.partstrain.com/store/includes_v4/secure/popup.php?type=more&image=L2ltYWdlcy9wcm9kdWN0X2ltYWdlcy9pbWFnZXMvV09STERQQUMvVzAxMzMxNjMzNDU3UEJSLkpQRw==&title=UEJSIENsdXRjaCBTbGF2ZSBDeWxpbmRlcg==&text=

A malfunctioning voltage regulator inside the alternator, or possibly a bad battery with a dead cell (causing the alternator to work too hard). You need to have the charging system checked.
