You will need a small chisel and hammer, hit the small bolt as to loosen it, till it starts to turn, the main screw is not reusable new switch should come with new one, when installing new screw keep turning till head breaks off, this is so that new switch is not easy to come of for theft reasons.

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.

Remove factory radio


This is one that you can stare at all day. the trim pieces that include the air vents (usually woodgrain) will come off and expose the screws that hold the radio in. They are held in by spring clips, a gentle pry will get you started. Here is a website that shows how to remove one for a cell phone mount: http://www.bracketron.com/main/xmain_landing_page.php You may have to take the climate controll screws out to get the radio out far enough to reach the plugs on the back. You should be able to figure out the rest. good luck, and be gentle.. the trim is getting cheaper and cheaper, and is really easy to break.
