Asked by Dec 18, 2007 at 05:25 PM about the 2001 Kia Rio Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have my alternator disconnected but can't bring it down out of the engine because of the lack of space.  Is there a trick to getting it out or do I have disassemble something else in order to pull it out.

There is probably a trick, I would ask a service tech at the Kia dealer if they know any special tricks. However, there may be other things required. They will be able to tell you either way. I've not seen any Kias lately so I don't know offhand what to tell you. What exactly is getting in the way of you removing it? Let me know and maybe I can give you a better answer.
