SOURCE: How do you remove Audio-CD player from a 2002 Kia Sportage

after you remove all the screws from the dash you have to get down to a section by the pedals and remove something like the airbag to get at the last part of the dash apart. then you need to unplug the mirror and back wiper switches (opt i think). then you have access to your radio. These are all things i gathered from watching the guy at futureshop do, it was about $100 and now I don't have fm radio. but I am now going to try it on my own.

    Remove and install steering wheel kia sportage 1998


    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

    1. Pull the covers off from the top front of both rails.They are only loosely clipped.
    2. Undo the 2 screws found at the front and the 3rd screw at the back end of this base piece.
    3. Remove the base.( the nuts are locked in on the roof)
    4. Do this boths sides and then simply release the adjusting clips and slide off.
    5. Replace bases and screws in original positions and push on covers.
    Best with 2 people.One each side when sliding off the cross rails.

    Solved! And it looks neater.
