Hi,
Just got a fixer upper sephia and have some questions. I have not had luck finding repair manuals yet, and googling hasn't turned up a lot yet. I need to know how to do the following:

1) Set ignition timing (have to pull distributor to change seal).
2) Clutch replacement.
3) Remove the stock broken tape deck with digital tuner.
4) Any other maintenannce items that might just be good to know.
5) How hard to remove the front fender.

I've done those types of repairs on many other models of cars, along with modifications, I just need the specifics of this model since I'm not familiar with it yet.

I just changed my rear fender, because it was broken. Not that hard, but get a good set of tools. My problem was that every nut under the car was rusted (new england), and had to borrow a set to get the job done. Just detach the wiring harnesses to the lights on the fender (I guess the fron is the turn signal, the rear was the license plate light). Alldata might have repair manuals for Kias but haven't checked it myself. It needs a yearly fee, but I have heard some public libraries have access. The radio should be easy, I have done it on other cars, but my Kia is fien (and I am broke for now!).
Good luck motoring.
