  13. This is an instructional on deleting your air conditioning on your KIA. It took me a few hours only because i didn't have any instructions. You'll need a 10mm and a 12mm socket for the rad and a/c compressor bolts. A 22 mm for the crank bolt if you do it like i did which ill mention later or a 17 mm wrench for the belt tensioner if your a true maniac. Start by removing all the ac lines, radiator mounts at the top, and remove the front grill. Just a heads up I had to cut one line going into the firewall. Next, remove the ac bolts. Move the passenger side of the radiator up and towards the engine as far as you can. Slip the compressor under the rad and pull it up through the opening where the grill used to be. Now this is where it became a nightmare for me, there are no A/c bypass kits for this vehicle. I had one delivered from a parts store for a different vehicle. I thought i was screwed. So I removed the idler pulley directly to the right of the crank pulley in the picture. The belt size needed for the is a 6K680. You might be able to fit a 6K675 but its a very tight fit. I had somebody rotate the crank while i held the belt in place to slip over the power steering pulley. I highly recommend not compressing the spring tensioner. The only tool you can get in there is a 17 mm wrench. It just doesn't work for getting a belt on. The belt routing is shown in a different picture below. In a side note if you hear someone say these engines are garbage, they are only partially true. They have their faults like any other engine. I run a 75 shot of nitrous through mine and it handles it like a champion. Ive run three ten pound bottles in the past two months on the street. It hauls ass. Good luck. Next

  22. so my passenger seat air bag sensor is not working it is apparently a common problem with kia cars. In my case i believe its due to water spilling on the seat damaging the sensor pad. I was wondering if its at all possible to have the passenger air bag always on instead of relying on the sensor. If not ideas on best place to find a new pad that is not pricey?
  23. Hi there, I have a KIA Sportage GT-line, which I have purchased mid-2017. My question is regarding the powered driver's seat and if the 'issue' that I am expecting is actually a defect or something that I have to live with because it is 'normal'. When turning into corners, the seat moves lightly to the side and I can fee a little click of the seat. Example: When turning left, the seat might move very slightly to the right and I can feel a click of the seat. When turning left again, the seat does not move. Only when then turning right, the seat might move to the left with the same slight movement and click. I have been to my local dealer multiple times, they apparently changed the seat base, which unfortunately did not fix the issue. I have had multiple cars with powered front seats, but have never experienced this issue before. I also had the change to drive a friend's KIA Sportage GT-line of the same year, his car did not have the issue. Can you please advise and let me know what to do? Many thanks, Nikolai
