Why does my engine shake on my 2002 KIA Rio while in park and while driving? The shaking goes all the way to the steering wheel?

Hi there.!
  1. This sounds suspiciously like one or more of your engine mounts have deteriorated. If this Is Indeed the case, and It has been going on steadily worsening over time, I would advise you to replace all four.
  2. I often find when having problems with my car, that seeking advice from a local car spares supplier before going to a mechanic can be helpful as they are less Inclined to give the sharp Intake of breath which often accompanies the garage quote...!
Please rate If this helps.

Kia carens 2003. (UK) Don't know alternate name.

take out all the screws in the door handles etc,slide the chrome suround forwards on the interior doorpull and remove.then, very carefully prise off the inner door panel(use a Y tool for the clips,or a wide will break some) with the window up,you will be able to see a wire hanging down from the outside handle,it is the clip that holds this on that is broken(very common)if the clip is okay then you will have to see what else is needed.but it will be obvious.

KIA CARENS Drivers door wont open its almost like the handle loose

FIRST: If it is under warranty, take it to the dealer!
If not, from your rather limited description it sounds as though the attachment rod that operates the latch mechanism is either so loose or disengaged that it will not rotate the security latch to "unlock" your door. Open up the attachment point and the panel to determine what exactly has loosened or failed and replace the hardware and then properly secure eveything.

Kia sedona outside door handle replacement

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to remove the bolts securing the outer handle on

My 2002 Kia Rio with manual locks also wouldn't unlock. the connecting rods would bend enough that I could pull the inside plunger up or turn the key, but in either case it would snap back when I let go, and the door remained locked.

The problem is a broken spring at the latch mechanism. Getting it unlocked is a matter of wiggling and banging the handles and lock until the lever the spring is supposed to control moves. The lever is in line with the car, so gravity might help if you park facing uphill or downhill. I wish I'd inspected the latch carefully enough to tell which.

Once the door is open, remove the interior door panel. The hard part is the window crank: push the heavy wire clip off the crank's shaft between the crank and the panel. Save the plastic sheet inside the panel; it protects the mechanisms from collecting moisture in your interior and rusting. A few screws and a snap or two will allow you to lift the panel up off the inside lip of the window.

The latch is held in by the 3 big screws in the door's edge, but you also need to disconnect some connecting rods that go to the various latch and lock handles. The plastic clips that hold the rods into their levers can be rotated to unsnap from the rod, the the rod can be pulled easily our of the clip. You'll see when you try it.

On mine, I found a broken spring that had connected two hooks right across the top of the latch mechanism. I came online to find a replacement spring or mechanism and ended up here, but my rubber band I cut from a bicycle inner tube is working fine for now.

Go ahead. Say something about fixing a broken Kia with a rubber band.
