Cool Kia Rondo Repair Manual

The owner's manual is not very informative. Then when you search for a repair manual, many kia models pop-up, but not the Rondo. I would like to get one. Can anyone help ? I own an '09 Rondo EX-V6 Luxury.

Cool Rondo Repair Manual

Is there a repair manual for the '09 Rondo ? The owner's manual sure doesn't give much info.

Default #175 bulb

Last I know the #175 dome light bulb is listed in US retail as DE3175 and should be available at any parts store or maybe even Walmart or Canadian Tire.

thanks vanner. The DE3175 shows as a festoon type & I believe the MAP light I'm looking for is not that. The sketch on donsbulbs.com shows it as a wedge type, which looks like a match to me.
And- thank you AllaTurca, you're correct & so I used IE8 & made more progress but still could not complete the registration because in IE8 I get the message "the specified module could not be found" when I try & read the agreement. I"m using XP so I press on CNTRL like it says but to no avail.

update on that #175 bulb. An old experienced parts man here found more info.. Turns out it's a bulb made by WAGNER & it's official name is "175L {Larry} Wagner. I could buy them @ Rock Auto but they sell only in a 10 per box format. The Ford parts guy in my town also could get them but, same deal buy 10. Those DE3175 @ CTC are the festoon type & don't match.
