Question about 2009 Kia Borrego
How do you remove the plastic engine cover on a 2009 Kia Borrego?
If you have a 4.6l V-8 Borrego, rather than a 3.8l 6-cylinder engine, you will not find the oil filter at the back of the engine. Rather it is under the engine at the front of the car, above the front bumper under plate, near the radiator. It is a cartridge filter so do not expect to find a screw-on disposable filter. You will find a black plastic filter screw-on cover directly in front of the oil cooler.

Just grab it and pull straight up, it is mounted on studs with rubber bushings holding it in place.

Just push up on the plastic front side. It is held in place by what I call "lock and pops" little metal spikes with ball on the end of them. The oil filter is at the back of the engine (center). Don't forget to use only synthetic 5-20W.
