    conwelpic....Im asking your your opinion on a matter . i have a 2011 sportage manual trans. ive treated the brakes and clutch very well as i know there expence to replace. i have 80k on it and have replaced the front pads not because worn out but at half way . any way ive purchased a tent trailer . basicaly the smallest model . a coachman clipper 8 foot . it weighs 1300 and a tongue weight of about 118 . i gave it a trial on the coquihalla hyway here that is one of the biggest power sapping hills i know of . i was down to third at 80 klm at the top . no over heating . do you think the sportage is up to task of towing this tent trailer for a few weeks a year . or do you think i will end up wearing the car out

    Thank You-

    I found just the info I needed on the rear bumper cover removal on kiatechinfo.com.
    I find that going in with the information needed saves a lot of time and anger. Most of these things are pretty easy to figure out, but there are always surprises.

    Hello Conwelpic.

    Thanks for the info on jack positions.
    Sorry to bother you again but I stlll need more precise instructions.
    The diagram is way too vague for me. I don't want to split the car in two.
    Which is the rocker panel seam, and exactly where are the two notches front and back? How far from the wheel well for instance and how far in from the outside of the car.
    I would hate to admit defeat and call towing assistance should I need it.

    Many thanks again.
    I have felt under the car but find nothing but sticky rustproofing.
