    Here are some photos of the alternator with the longbolt I loosened. I was going to loosen the top bolt but it got dark and I changed my mind.

    My 2011 Kia Rio is the base model. No A/C, no power steering, no power locks or power windows.

    Is this the correct timing belt? I know the base model may differ from other models.

    Is this belt a one size fits all for all 2011 kia rios?

    Hello moderator, a fellow Kia owner that is on the other Kia Cadenza forum is asking if a moderator could contact him. He has been trying to sign up to this site but says the message he receives is that he has an incomplete registration. He's not sure on what he is doing wrong. If you could contact him and help him out I'm sure he would be appreciative.

    Thank you

    His contact email address is [email protected]

    Hi,
    I was reading your info on the blower motor resistor connector and this is my issue. I have 2007 Kia Spectra, the resistor is a 3 blade one, the connector got melted and broke. I was able to find a universal connector kind of DIY rewire your self 4 slot harness that fits. But I dont know what wire goes where.see I have 3 blades. one side by side in this form: __
    __ __
    each of those lines represents the blade but on my harness where do I run the black cable, the red cable and the skinny green cable? they should touch one of each of those blades individually.... help desperate need of help..... the old conector was not there for me to see configuration of wires. Thanks!!!!

    Hello Dave, I saw you answer quite a few questions so I was hoping you could help me. I have a question about a 2006 Kia Optima. The AC would squeal when you turned it on. It also had a leak in the power steering pump that was driven with for over a year. I replaced the power steering pump and everything ran fine for a day or two and then the belt that had a chip in it to start with, shredded. Replaced the belt and immediately the AC compressor went out. When you turned it on it wouldnt blow air but the RPMs were fluxing from 1-2k, What could have caused that? At one point during changing the pump I got distracted bc I was helping someone else on another project and forgot to put the belt on before I started it to bleed the fluid. Could that have fried the compressor? Just curious what it could have been r if it was just going bad to start with bc of the squeal? Any insight would be appreciated.
