Question about Kia Rio

1 Answer

I have a kia rio 2003, and a piece off metal that hold in place the clutch cable insid the car and under the dash board, has loosen off its welded bits and the clutch cable is all loose. All I have been able to do is loosen that part from a nut it has holding it and since the welded points broke, Ive had that specific piece of sheet metal that holds the cable clutch in my hands. Ive seen that ts part of a bigger piece of metal that holds a few more components of the brake and other things down there. How can I fix this? Do I Have to remove the whome dash pannel? Or can I get the new piece in a junkyard and mount its without dismounting the whole front panel of the car?

I would just get that piece welded back on. Clamp it in it's proper position with some Vice-Grips first, and make sure it is exactly in the right place before you weld. Also DISCONNECT THE BATTERY BEFORE YOU WELD. If you don't you will face a nightmare trying to fix electrical problems. You may need to move some things so the welder can do his job but it shouldn't be a lot. Also have something to use as a blanket to keep sparks from hitting wires and plastic and rool the carpet back on that part of the floor. Have a source of water ready before he starts welding, things can happen no matter how careful you are. A garden hose will do, just try it and make sure it is turned on.

Why does my 2003 Kia Rio have hard time going into 1st, 2nd, & sometimes reverse? Unless I press REALLY ******* clutch.


The clutch system in the Kia rios of those years are clutch cables, not hydraulic. There is no need for clutch fluid. Have a mechanic look at your clutch cable tension.
If it turns out to be a tranny prob thank Korea for building cheap cars.

How difficult would it be to change the clutch on a 2002 Kia Rio?


there are not any do it yourself manuels on the market , for the 2000 thru 2005 i myself own a 2003 , its hard to get parts and help the only real place to get all that you need is at a kia dealership. normaly the clutch is a piece of cake .but i will not even attemp it . most of the parts i have been replacing have caused me to have to buy and fix something else ,stuff breaks easy, example i tried to adjust the idle by loosening the throttle stop screw and making a quarter turn . something i should have not done .it has to be set while on the computer and the threads were extra fine and metric ,i even whent to a machine shop and they could not even get an acurate mesurement to make me a new screw because i striped out the thread ,so i had to buy a used throttle from the junk yard and replace the whole thing. my advice take it to kia and pay alot

I have the same car, the only solution to this problem is to tighten the clutch cable nut just as necessary until you feel that you are able to shift smoothly without forcing it, make sure you start the car to test for that.

You might have to remove the air intake in order to access the clutch cable.

If you tighten the nut too much, your clutch will feel light and you will have clutch slips. So basically keep trying until you're there. You can loosen or tighten the nut while the car is running, I'd recommend.

Replacing clutch gable


First you must get under the engine to unscrew the extremity of he cable fixed to the clutch lever. Once you are able to release this extremity of the cable, its done at one end and you must go inside your car. The best is to completely remove the driver seat. If you don't want to do it, at least, push it back to the maximum to have the most space you can under the driving wheel. It is better to get a good light (but small) to see (try to) what you are doing in this small space. The first thing to do once you are installed is to pull hard on the cable to get some loose inside. The isolation bushing should get out of its place. Once you think you have got enough loose (6 inches), have a look to the extremity of the clutch pedal, where the cable is fixed. With a long (one foot) flat screw driver, you have to push the extremity of the cable, really the cable, to loosen it from the extremity braket. Once done, with the same screw driver, you have to push the braket towards the front and the top. If you do it well, the bracket should jump from its place on the pedal. At this point, your cable is no longer attach to the clutch pedal. Then you noticed for sure that the extremity of the cable gaine is attached to a kind of plate which is welded to the two pedal boxes apart. The final thing to do is to push on a piece of black metal, on top of the plate, that prevents the cable sheath to be removed (it is hard to see but easy to do). Once done, you can remove the cable by pulling the cable sheath down and then pulling towards yourself. There are two bushing along the engine (or transmission) that guide the clutch cable from the pedal to the clutch. Before pulling everything off, make sure to remove those from their place.
