Can't say I understand their problem. I don't know whether you have previous experience of forums but it's not unusual for things to fly off in tangents in several directions, nobody ends up any wiser and everybody gets upset.

I now happily retire from any further forum entries and consider myself utterly quashed.

No, do keep contributing. I agree with you that some of the servicing requirements to maintain warranty are nonsensical.

I did say I was finished with the forum Ace Demon, but you deserve an answer out of common politeness, your previous advice has always been good to read.
In answer, I am a member of the caravan forum, beekeeping forum and until I handed in my rifle recently the gun owners forum. In the main I have found these three forums in general much more humorous and polite. One gets the odd point pusher determined to lecture, even here, but in general one answer, or apology generaly put things to right. I have found in the Kia forum some member’s dedication to protecting the Kia guarantee a little too overwhelming. When members bother to look up a mileage to Inverness that I happened to state, then write in to gleefully say I was incorrect just to feel they had proved a point, this surely is a tangent too far. When I pointed out the suggested route, though shorter was on single track road for more than forty odd miles, nothing was said, just one more imagined fault put forward. Perhaps the forum grading of its members may have a poor effect. After all, the title of expert, to some members, must need defending at all costs. However there is one more reason I leave the forum. An American forum member has kindly offered to supply my original search to find servicing details for Kia. If I receive these I will have no need to seek advice from the forum again.
Thanks again,Johnfranklyn

Doubt the American will be of any use, the Ceed is a Europe only model (Ceed is an acronym for Community of Europe European Design) and is not sold in America.

Of course we are trying to protect our guarantee, it is one of the reasons we buy Kias.

Thanks for the information that I am wasting my time. I don't know how I will do without you in the future.
Here is a bit of information in return. In the USA Kia market the Forte, this shares the same running platform as the Kia Cee'd. I won't bother to explain what a platform is, I am sure you know far more about it than I do. Read my entry again and try to work out what I was hoping for from the states. No! I will make it very clear. I wrote servicing details for KIA, not you numpty, for Kai Cee'd. Before any more nit picking do remember I was after information on running gear. Please please take your unwanted expertise somewhere else. I am sick to the teeth of it of it.

John

Before you start messing with your car you need the manual specific to your particular model. All Kia's are different and they vary from market to market, generic information is OK to a point but needs to be backed up with model specific info.

You are arrogant enough to accuse a young mechanic as being inexperienced thus incompetent but now you are potentially risking your own safety and that of other road users by carrying out work without the correct manual, how arrogant is that.

When ceed3 reads the post where you called him a numpty despite his best attempts to assist you you may well find yourself reported to the Forum Moderators, on other forums I am a member of this type of personal abuse is not tolerated.

All this from an ex teacher, no wonder education is in such a mess.

You may have arrived on a bad day. But I can't see what the storm is about.

Default Grumpy old man.

Yes, gentlemen, I have to admit ‘Grumpy old man’ can be applied to me. I also want to say sorry to Mr Cee’d. I can’t remember which of the two using the cee’d name to identify themselves I am addressing, but I apologise for the name calling. It was uncalled for and bad mannered, a thing my mother tried to teach me never to do, often with the flat of her hand.
I am also a grumpy and frustrated old man as all my efforts to find out details’ of my Kia’s rear brakes have led me nowhere on this forum. All I want to do is skim them. A very nodest task.
Okay, I now accept Kia do not want to show information that will make this a mornings work, but have we anyone on the forum who has had his rear drums off? It’s a very simple question and if you could help I will send you a jar of honey.
So is there a do it yourself guy out there please get in touch. I will wait a week or so the tackle it blind.
John franklyn.

The rear drums will not require skimming, they are only used by the handbrake. Parts like disks and drums are cheap to buy, nobody skims them now. There is normally a minimum service thickness you have to check, if you get that wrong your brakes may not work.

If you have found this wonderful place in Ullapool why not entrust the work to them.
