KIA Niro: Protection Of The Vehicle
Always be sure to cover fenders, seats, and floor areas before starting work.
The support rod must be inserted into the hole near the edge of the hood whenever you inspect the engine compartment to prevent the hood from falling and causing possible injury.
Make sure that the support rod has been released prior to closing the hood.
Always check to be sure
the hood is firmly latched before driving the vehicle.
Preparation Of Tools And Measuring Equipment
Be sure that all necessary tools and measuring equipment are available starting work.
Use special tools when they are required.
Removal Of Parts
First find the cause of the problem and then determine whether removal or disassembly before starting the job.
If the disassembly procedure is complex, requiring many parts to be disassembled, all parts should be disassembled in a way that will not affect their performance or external appearance.
- Inspection of parts
Each part, when removed, should be carefully on suspected for malfunction,
and other problems.
- Arrangement of parts
All disassembled parts should be carefully arranged for effective reassembly.
Be sure to separate and correctly identify the parts to be replaced from those that will be used again.
- Cleaning parts for reuse
All parts to be used again should be carefully and thoroughly cleaned by an appropriate method.
When replacing parts, use Kia Motors Genuine Parts or equal quality
Standard values, such as torques and certain adjustments, must be strictly observed in the reassembly of all parts.
If removed, the following parts should always be replaced with new ones.
- Oil seals
- Lock washers
- Cotter pins (split pins)
- Plastic nuts
Depending on their location
- Sealant should be applied to gaskets.
- Oil should be applied to the moving components of parts.
- Specified oil or grease should be applied to the prescribed locations (oil seals, etc) before assembly.
Use gauges and testers to properly adjust the parts to the correct standard values.
