Hello guys!
Does any one changed the kick down servo switch in a 2008 kia rio with automatic transmission?
Thank for your help.

It's a Canadian car with 169990 kms.

Good photos! Doesn't look to difficult. A pair of decent snap ring pliers will get the cover off. You have a pass thru connector to deal with; should not be to hard to figure out. Once inside the switch should be easy to remove, perhaps a few M10 bolts? Don't let dirt and schmuck get into the servo area. If you do bad things could happen. Clean the area with a wire brush and some brake cleaner the best you can prior to disassembly. Good Luck! Let us know how you made out.

Thanks!
I did some research and found the location and did
a video in youtube
Finally I didn't have to remove it-for now- I removed the battery and filter assembly, disconnect the ECM and the switch several times, and voila, my scanner succeeded to erase the code P1709...
Now I have to deal with the leaking all around the transmission...
Thanks again, you're right ,the 📷 that I have posted was clear enough.
