My 2011 kia rio has had 3 services with kia dealer, and 2with independent vat reg garage using all kia parts. Book stamped up to date. At the minute my car is in Spain with my husband. The passenger wheel...


If the work was done by a N.I.A.S.E. certified mechanic they have to honor the work as this is a certified mechanic who has been schooled and passed the test for auto mechanics. If you replace the wheel bearings on the passenger side it is advisable to have them done on the drivers side also. That is standard knowledge.

Hello, I have problem on my 2004 Kia Rio, with right rear wheel bearing, it stuck and has noise. what you can suggest to do?


Get all wheel bearings replaced.A car of that age shouldn't have wheel bearings failing so early.Try getting something aftermarket as Kia parts are not that reliable.There are heaps of complaints about this car if you google.

I have a 2001 kia rio, we have replaced front wheel bearing a combined total of 12 times and it only has 81000 miles on it. one are the other goes out about every 10000 miles.can we replace the older axle...


well not sure what you mean by one piece assm. becuase all front wheel drive cars require one shaft and two c/v joints on either end.

but i think i have a hunch of the problem and them most common cause for failure after a replacement is over tighting of the axle nut. what happens is it crush's the bearing and cut's it's life.

Need instruction manual/schematics for replacing 2005 kia rio driver side rear wheel bearing. i've got the wheel/hub/bearing off, not the inside ring to the bearing. i need to know how to replace it .


clean all the grease if there is any out of the hub, turn the hub over and using a drift and hammer strike the shell from the back edge working around the shell as you go, should not take too much to remove it but you will need a bit more than a tap with the hammer.
Hope this has helped you
