Question about 2005 Kia Sedona

1 Answer


I replaced the CV joints in my 2005 kia sedona and when I removed the drivers side joint a bit of trans fluid ran out. I installed the new CV joint and replaced some trans fluid. Everything is running good but I notice that it's leaking trans fluid now. Should I have replaced any seals when I did the replacement of the CV joints?

    Thanks for your help John. It did have a retaining clip and I used a rubber mallet to help it in. It was leaking around the seal that the axle goes through into the transmission. I have since then removed the sea/shim and now I'm having trouble finding the part. Any suggetions would be appreciated.

    here is a picture of the part and it's location

    for the above link you'll have to copy the whole thing or it won't work.

  • Hi Phil, Unfortunately I can't help you with the problem of finding the oil seal. I have no idea where you are in the world and unless you live in Zambia (in the event you're not familiar with the name, it's in Africa) I would suggest you look closely at the seal and copy the part number. If you know of a company specialising in the supply of bearings, they would be your best bet for the supply of a replacement. Regards John

Hi Phil, On the Spyder end of the shaft that fits into the gearbox there is a retaining clip. Did you knock it in securely? If you did then a seal may have become damaged when making the replacement. That will need replacement. Regards John

SOURCE: need to replace water pump in2005 kia sedona

The kia sedona water pump is an internal pump and needs to be replaced with timing belt service. if it is leaking, then you need to change the timing belt as well. probably not something you want to do in the back yard and will run you between 400 and 600 depending on your location and shop.

Removing a Kia Sedona cv boot

the procedure is to remove the axle from the vehicle and fit the proper boot
however as it is a costly procedure , there are replacement boots available from reputable auto spares shops that after the old boot has been cut off , will clip around the cv joint and seal together
there will be fitting instructions in the package and if you follow them to the letter , the replacement boot is as good as a genuine one

I cant remove the metal end and spline inside of my kia sedona

Try to get a pry bar or large screwdriver between the CV housing and the transmission case. A little force may be required, but you have to pop the housing out of the transmission. A c-clip in a groove on the splined shaft is holding the shaft in, and must be popped outward, for the housing and shaft to be removed.

I am having tremendous difficulty turning the steering wheel - checked the power steering fluid and it is full -- what else could it be?? Thank you. Cathy Beadnell

This is a known problem and has been increasingly noted by sedona owners. Steering shaft becomes corroded making vehicle steer hard. They say due to salt but if you live anywhere it snows you cant avoid it.

The seal you need is called a transmission/transaxle output shaft seal. The 2 best things to do, either get the number off the original seal and have it matched at a local autoparts store or go to Kia/Hyundai. they will know the proper seal. Be sure to install the seal evenly into the trans or it may leak again. If you need anything further, please let me know.

Cv joint kit

first check the balljoint was tightened properly when the new CV was fitted, otherwise you have to have the balljoint changed, ask the MOT place for a quote.

Same Problem here... Kia sedona 2002

Several items can contribute to the shaking of the front end. Bad tires, any slack in the hubs, a bad CV joint, worn tie rods, ball joints. I would first check out the tires and then proceed to searching for components that have worn and have slack in them. Replace as necessary.
