Start by removing spare tire spay penetrating oil on to latch mechanism under lower bar as it should be more assessable the pull cable hooks to a slide latch give an hour or so for fluid to work if penetrating oil does not free up latch try prying the slide to the direction of pull wiith a mechanics pry bar or long large flat tip screw driver if not remove latch mechanism from carrier bar and repair or replace.

How do i remove the battery from porsche 928


Remove rear carpet. Remove spare tire in recessed tire compartment. There will be a small hatch with a plastic white lever that you have to swing open. Once the door is open, remove ground (black) first, then the positive red side. Clean terminals and also clean ground to rear hatch from battery.

Timing belt broke on 1998 kia sportage, need the correct points


Hi, Just to clarify and clear things up, the motor used in the 1998 to 2002 Kia Sportage is actually the Mazda FE3 engine and it is a NON-INTERFERENCE engine.

For any an all repair information on any Kia vehicle produced you can access the KGIS system (Kia Global Information System), just go to www.kiatechinfo.com and create and account (its completely FREE). After you do this you will have access to all the Kia Shop Manuals, DTC Manuals, Recall information for your vehicle and more.

I just had the same problem with my Sportage and found all the information that I needed through KGIS. Hope this helps and good luck on fixing your Sportage.
