I looked at the Kia-Tech site and the diagram showing the FRONT bulb layout does not duplicate what or how my Rondo's bulbs are designed into the headlamp assembly. It's also pretty darned light on info as to how to replace the bulbs. In fact, it's mostly absent.
All that said, can anyone assist me with the proper bulb replacement procedure / technique for replacing what I would refer to as the "RUNNING" Lamp. This small bulb is located directly beneath the Main / Low beam Headlamp bulb. In other words, they are both located behind the inner-most access cap.
I removed the battery, since it's already a trick to get to it easily.
Then unscrew the access cap.
Then, removed the lead wire / clip for the Low beam lamp and slid it out of the way.
But this running lamp socket simply spins. You can see it from the front of the headlamp assembly, and notice it has two, tiny, plastic "ears" that retain it.
But how to get to the bulb?
The replacement bulb I have is the Sylvania 168, which is what Autozone shows as the replacement, and by the looks of it, is the correct bulb.
If I could only ever get to it!
I know this isn't a complaint forum for the Kia-Tech site, but again, the diagram showing the location of the two fastening bolts holding the bucket in is atrocious. They show the one bolt in front just hanging in space. There is the faintest dashed line supposedly trying to show its location, but it's useless.
