Remove and install steering wheel kia sportage 1998

I have a Kia Sportage and the steering wheel was not properly returned by the mechanic. I could not see my dashboard gauge while driving since one of the 3 spokes is on the way. How can I remove my steering wheel and adjust it to the proper position so I can see the gauge while driving? A step by step process on how to remove and return the wheel would be great.

Why would you get involved with the steering wheel ?


You paid a repair shop that obviously doesn't do very good work

Take it back

If the steering wheel was not removed for whatever your
car was in the shop for ,then you don't remove it to resolve
the issue.

If the steering rack was replaced, then they did a terrible job
putting it back together

SOURCE: kia sportage fuel gauge unit not working ?

hi this sounds like it could be a couple of things, first the obvious have you checked the fuse? or it might be the relay in the fuse box might need replacing, and the fuel sender unit in the fuel tank, you also can check out the wires going to the sender unit, sometimes you can find these under the rear seat or in the boot/trunk area might be a simple case of one of the wires have come adrift there is a couple of things to check before having the sender unit replaced or the Gage..hope that helps

Timing belt broke on 1998 kia sportage, need the correct points


Hi, Just to clarify and clear things up, the motor used in the 1998 to 2002 Kia Sportage is actually the Mazda FE3 engine and it is a NON-INTERFERENCE engine.

For any an all repair information on any Kia vehicle produced you can access the KGIS system (Kia Global Information System), just go to www.kiatechinfo.com and create and account (its completely FREE). After you do this you will have access to all the Kia Shop Manuals, DTC Manuals, Recall information for your vehicle and more.

I just had the same problem with my Sportage and found all the information that I needed through KGIS. Hope this helps and good luck on fixing your Sportage.
