To replace headlight bulb of kia pregio van: You only need Phillips screw driver and 10mm socket or open wrench. Open the hood, remove front grill with 4 phillips screw. This will give you room for your hand to pull out the headlight housing later on. Next is remove the signal light housing by unscrewing the phillips screw on top of the headlight housing then pull out the signal light housing and remove the bulb. You will see 2 pcs 10mm bolts on the side which hold the headlight. Loosened and remove the bolts on headlight holder then pull the headlight sideward. Remove power supply socket before removing it completely from the van. Remove bulb socket, spring clip, and busted bulb and replace with new one. Reassemble the disassembled parts in reverse order. That's it, will take you only 10 minutes.

    #refranc8....nice...thanks. Just to add...the philips screws for the signal light are through the slots at the top. You do not have to undo them completely, just losen them and use a screwdriver to pop the two light housings apart.

SOURCE: Blown headlight

One thing about replaceing the bulbs. Make sure you clean them before putting them back into the housing. Even the body oil from your finger will shorten the life of the bulbs. Most bulbs I have used come with instructions on what to use to clean them.

SOURCE: How do you change out a starter on a 2005 Kia

The starter is between the radiator and engine, there is a bolt thru the transmission and a bolt with a nut below it to remove. You'll need to disconnect the positive cable on the battery. Unbolt the cable from the solenoid and unplug the connector on the solenoid. The wires going to the starter are bolted to the transmission mount, it might be helpful unbolting that to get a little more slack in the wires.

SOURCE: 2005 kia spectra - How to change the headlights out

I imagine that the 2005 Kia Spectra is very similar to our 2004 MY (mid year) Spectra. On the driver's side you first must remove the cover that extends forward from the battery. There are three plastic screws across the front and one screw on the left (as you face the engine compartment) attaching the cover to a bracket. Remove these screws and set the cover aside. The passenger side has no such cover to remove. For either headlight, there is a cup-like cover approximately 3 to 4 inches in diameter. Unscrew this cover (counterclockwise); I think you only need to turn the cover ~ 1/16 of a turn for it to come off. Set the cover aside. The connector is held in place by a spring-loaded clip that looks a bit like a bent paperclip. Press the end of the clip in and then away from the body of the connector. This will release the connector and the light bulb. Remove the old light bulb by pulling it straight out. Plug the new bulb in. In my experience, the hardest part of this simple task is putting the bulb back in and lining it up correctly. There are three tabs on the metal flange at the base of the bulb that must line up with slots in the housing. Pull the retaining clip out of the way and insert the bulb into the headlight cavity and align the tabs with the slots. Push the bulb in so that it is flush then push the retaining clip down and then toward the light bulb until it hooks under a hook on the bulb. If you've done this correctly, the retaining clip will be pressing the bulb firmly against the housing. Replace the cover by lining it up and turning it clockwise until it is tight. On the driver's side, line the cover up with the mating holes. Push the three plugs through the holes then screw the plastic screws in through the plugs the expand them until tight. Don't forget to replace the screw that attaches the cover to the bracket to the left of the battery.
I've made this sound a lot harder than it is. Sorry.
