SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: crankshaft sensor for 2004 kia sorento

The above information about the sensor being located at the top of the motor to the passenger side of center is bogus. That is only the pig tail plug in. The actual sensor pig tail continues down below, underneath the plastic lower timing belt cover, on the front of the motor, just above the crankshaft timing gear.

It is a very involved process of removing and replacing. You will have to remove all of the belts, the front timing belt covers, (upper and lower). You will also have to remove the front bracket that is mounted to the front of the block, which serves as the mount for the power steering pump, the alternator and the A/C compressor.You will also have to remove the crankshaft pulley. You cannot remove the plastic lower timing belt cover unless you remove all of these things first. The sensor is located underneath the lower cover. It has two bolts that hold it in place. You will have to remove these two bolts.

The crankshaft pulling bolt is a right handed thread and loosens by turning counter clockwise. The pulley will slip off but is a very tight fit. Do not try to turn it while removing it as there is a small pin that keeps it aligned to one position. Use a small ball pine hammer to tap it loose.

It is also a good idea to remove the electric cooling fan shroud that is mounted to the inside side of the radiator and the radiator hoses to give yourself more room to work. It has only two bolts at the top holding it in place. And then slips into two retaining clips at the bottom. Lifting it will pull it out of these retaining clips.

When you remove the small bypass hose located at the top of the radiator , to the passenger side, be careful not to break off the small nipple protruding out of the radiator tank. It is plastic and will break easily if you try to pull the rubber bypass hose from it. This will have to be taken to a radiator shop to have repaired if you accidentally break this off. Be sure to carefully loosen the hose from this nipple before trying to pull it off.

And one more thing, if you go to that much trouble to replace this sensor, it is a good idea to go ahead and replace the timing belt as well. It is a maintenance item and you will have to go through the same process to replace it as well. Do it once and do it all.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: I am changing the spark plugs on my 2004 Kia sorento

Be careful there.. If you remove the Throttle Position Sensor TPS or the throttle Cable, the engine light will come on because there is a certain setting that needs to be done to ensure accurate emission control.

SOURCE: How do you change head lights on a 2004 kia sorento?

The whole headlight assembly needs to be removed from the vehicle to access the lamps inside; especially on the side with the battery (left side).

Remove 3 10m bolts (one on top two on front)

Headlight assembly is held in place wth a large Nylon clip ear outer edge at bottom of the unit. Tilt out at the top and then pull forward and upward to remove. It fels like something's gonna break, but it's pretty tough.

Remove large round cap from behind either high or low beam lamp. Both lamps are hels in with a metal spring clip. Low beam is H-7, high beam is H-3.

To re-install, press bar into Nylon clip and then install 3 10mm bolts. Use a Torx bit to engage gear teeth and adjust height if necessary. There may or may-not be adjusters for left-right alignment.

Catalytic converter problems


You will get a fault code to that effect . Also if you can get underneath the car and hit the converter with the heel of your hand and it rattles then that is also a good indicator that it has failed.
