Remove the door. drill the spot welds up top. grind the edges of the old door until you can separate it with a hand chisel and hammer with ease. and get a soft hammer and a piece of wood and gently bend over the edges. dont forget to apply adhesive to the reinforcement inside the door to the skin and spot weld the upper lip of the door skin.

2001 kia optima lx keyless entry system reprogram


The 01 Optima had the keyless entry buttons right on the key itself. I'm not sure if the LX had the option... it was standard on the SE version. In any case, programming is done at the dealership, and is expensive. They use their special "code reader / writer" that plugs into the OBD II port under the dash. You provide all keys and they are recoded to the module that is located under the stereo. A cheaper option might be an aftermarket alarm installed at a local car audio shop. They are less expensive than you might think, even installed. Good luck.
P.S. the 01 Optima remote key had a problem with very short range. You needed to be within a few feet of the doors for it to work.

2001 Kia Optima. My daughter bought the car with


Did she get a new door or one from a salvage yard? If new did they move her window mtr over to the new door? If salvage they may not have bothered to change out- or you may also check that the wires that go from the door post to the door are hooked up or not worn thru from the door being damaged before.

How to change side door mirror kia 2001 optima


Not sure. Check with a junk yard they are good at those questions. The swap is EASY. just remove the interior triangle shaped cover, and remove the nuts and wires to take off the old one. Some Optimas also have tweeters in that location, use caution if you have them, they are expensive to replace. good luck!
