Question about 2003 Kia Sorento
When I give the car power I hear a banging comming from the transfer case....when I went under the car, I could mover the drive shaft front and back....hearing a banging.....what can this be....
Have your front end differential checked. My 2003 Sorento did the same knockin especially uphill and when I took it to the shop after several months of trying to fig it out on my own they said this is a VERY common problem with Kia's. GOODLUCK!!!

the drive shaft is fastened with just four bolts, you need to remove those bolts using a spanner or socket wrench so you could pulldown the shaft and you need to mark the shaft end where it was originally matched up because the shaft is perfectly balanced to avoid vibration while rotating. the universal joint comes with a circlip ring and you need to remove those so you could take out the old uni-joint...hope this helps..

Vacume line is leaking and do not engaga fully. Vacume pipe an front wheels. 2 pipes 1 for brakes 1 for vacume. Pipe (rubber) connect by means of pushing it over the steel pipe. Easy to replace. Willem SA

Hi! Yes it can be the transfer case. I strongly suggest that you get one from the junkyard to cut expense plus they can give you a better deal which is more than half the price. HOpe this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
