Penetrating oil is your beat bet. Use something that isn't silicone or lithium based. If you don't have an impact don't be afraid to get rough with it. Worst case scenario you snap the bolt. If that happens grind it flush after you get the ball joint off, center punch the broken bolt drill it out to just under the thread size and get the threads out.

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Sedona Timing belt and plug replacement

I'm not familiar with the Sedona but it's very likely that it is much easier to do the plugs when the engine is disassembled for the belt job. If the plugs are due fairly soon anyway, it would save you a lot of money if you just pay for the plugs now and you don't have to pay for all the labor to get at that area of the engine again.

2004 Kia sedona replaced power steering pump and belt even changed the rack but still hard to turn.gets hard then normal and back and forth . as you are turning . help.


Lower ball joints and strut bearings. But these can cause a stiff turn. Nothing like when you loose your power steering. You could have bought a bad rack. Been there. I started rebuilding all mine.

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.

Hi,
Remove the castle nut on top of the ball joint that secures the ball joint to the spindle. separate ball joint/lower control arm from spindle.Remove lower control arm bolt attatching control arm to subframe/engine cradle. Remove control arm. Replacement is recersal of the removal. Nissan/Infinity ball joints can not be pressed out or in. They are replaced with the whole new lower control arm as one (On most Nissan/ Infinity vehicles, although some exeptions apply. Hope this helps.
