Question about 2003 Kia Spectra
There are 4 headlight caps on this model-2 on each side, the caps must be unscrewed in order to access the back of the headlight socket, once the cap for the headlight is removed you must also unlock a spring mechanism and then you will be able to access the headlight socket to replace the bulb-bulbs are fairly priced and most auto parts stores

Helps to remove the battery, but small ahbds can do it.
Directly behind the lens is a big round cap ... twist it off. The bulb is held in place with a spring that locks in to a notch in the holder. When handling the new bulb, don't touch the glass. The oil from your skin will cause it to shatter when turned on.

jack up the vehicle on the frame or on the body lip not on the front suspension take the lower ball joint loose and remove the axle nut and push the axle out of the knuckle and tie the knuckle up out of the way then you can take a pry bar and pry the axle out of the transmission being careful not to damage the seal. then reinstall new axle in reverse order

The knock sensor is hidden by the intake manifold bracket which is on the firewall side offf the car.To get to it you have to jack the car up and support it.with jack stands .always disconnect the battery when working with electrical peices.The knock sensor will be under the intake manifold bracket which is to the left of the alternator.To remove it remove the bracket, disconnect the plug to the sensor, remove the retaining bolt and then remove the sensor.I hope this helps finding it and replacing it.
