Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hi , Thank you for using JustAnswer.
Here are the procedures for installing the chain and the belt.
And finally the HLAs
As you know the HLA is supposed to pump up.The problem is when you remove them they come out some and need depressing. Well, Kia does'nt give any info on this.But i use a soft jaw vice, and a shop rag. Use a socket that is small enough to fit the plunger and long enough to do the job. Place the socket on the plunger.open the vice, place the rag over the jaws. Put the HLA in the vice and close onto the socket to push in the plunger ( Slowly. Apply Pressure Then Allow It To Collapse) Do all HLAs
