Installation of the Molding
Take the Molding Trim whether it is stock black or painted. Mine is black because my car is a year 2000. Painted side moldings were done in the year 2001. Snap them into place.

From the stock bumper, retrieve the upper rubber gaskets unless you ordered new ones. Simply take a screw driver and pry a corner off to get you started. Wash thoroughly. NOTE which one belongs on which side.
Place the rubber gasket on the M5 Front Bumper onto its appropriate side. Top dscn5717%20copy.jpg The M5 Bumper is now Fully Assembled!!! Place aside where it can't be damaged.

How to remove & install new front & rear bumpers 2006 Kia Sportage?


The easiest way for you to do that is to find on the new bumpers where the fixing points are (try to look for little holes, like where do screws go, or clips, even on the inner parts) and then try to locate them on the existing bumpers and remove them. After that, remove the old bumpers and instal the new ones by the exactly same steps.

How to remove front bumper


Remove screws in wheel wells holding bumper to inner fender, and fender. Then remove screw holding the splash guard to the lower bumper cover. Finally, remove screws holding the bumper cover to the core support on each side of the grill, and possibly the outer corners, near the head lamps. There will be some pin/clips retaining the bumper cover still, but separate easily without tools.

How do i remove the front bumper on a 2013 kia sorento


why take bumper off if your model was equipped for fog lights the wire plugs are already there as well the caps on the bumper should be screwed in place just go underneath and remove the caps and find the wires then put in a set of lights that fit in the hole or cut out the covers to fit your lights in saves a little of taking the bumper off

How do I replace the radiator in my 2004 kia


I don't currently have access to step by step instructions for your Kia Sorento, but I would imagine that it takes a standard tool ratcheting tool set to unscrew the bolts for the shroud, and lift any fans out of the way. Then, the radiator hold down hardware can be removed and the radiator should be disconnected fromt he cooling system (via the hoses) and then you can pull it out. It does not weigh much.

Installation is the reverse of the removal.

How to install a front bumper for a 1996 Honda accord sedan


Installation of a front bumper can be complicated. These helpful instructions may help a person with this task. If you choose to install a bumper yourself, please be cautioned that professional installation is always recommended. Please confirm before you start that your safety equipment has been applied to you, your car and your new bumper. These 10 easy steps can make a difficult install relatively easy.
The following steps are detailed instructions that you can follow. It is very important that you make sure to read each step carefully and completely:
1. Look closely at the new bumper and your car for screws, bolts and clips. Remove these pieces from your existing front bumper and place them in a safe area. Follow this by the full removal of the cars current front bumper.
2. Next, test the fit of the new front bumper. Make sure that nothing hinders with the placement and fit on the car.
3. If the fitment is correct the installation process may move forward.
4. If the fitment is incorrect then the removal or repositioning of certain components, such as reinforcement bars may be required. This is because every car is different. If this is the case remove the element and test fit the front bumper again. This should be done with caution and is done at the installers own risk.
5. Most of the time the new aftermarket bumper is placed the exact way the factory piece was. The most important key to great fitment in installation is the drilling procedure. The holes should be drilled in the places that will give the piece a great fit. Usually, these holes will be drilled in the same place as the factory bumper. At this point only mocking is required.
6. When the bumper is in place, shaving or filing maybe required. Many parts will require this because certain areas are made with more material to lower the risk of damage. Also, if a car has been in an accident or previously modified, this may cause additional sanding, cutting or filing.
7. Now that the front fits well, be very precise and drill the holes.
8. Prepping for paint is what needs to be done after the holes have been drilled. Depending on what material the front bumper is made of will determine the steps for prepping.
9. After the piece has been painted, clear coating may be appropriate.
10. Make sure there are not any leftover parts and that everything is secure. After this is done, your front bumper installation process is complete.

Replacing driver's side mirror on Kia Sorento


These instructions are for a 2013 Kia Sorento (Passenger Side Mirror)



1) remove speaker cover on inside door panel:

2) Use a small screwdriver to pry it away from the door. Be careful of the paint:
3_18_2013_2_41_45_pm.jpg

3) The panel will expose the 3 main bolts that need to be removed:
3_18_2013_2_43_24_pm.jpg

4) The cable harness needs to be removed this is located behind the door panel. Remove the one screw behind the screw cover:
3_18_2013_2_44_56_pm.jpg3_18_2013_2_45_02_pm.jpg3_18_2013_2_45_08_pm.jpg

Once the one screw is removed it will allow you to move the door panel enough to get to the harness and the 2 bottom bolts.

Here is how the harness looks:



3_18_2013_2_46_36_pm.jpg
Once the harness is removed and the 3 bolts removed the mirror will come out.

Repeat the steps to re install your new mirror.
