Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Labor time to replace the alternator is 3.4 hours. As far as the cable itself goesKIA doesnot sell just that cable. So they would either be making one or cutting up a harness from a salvage yard for it.
What I would suggest is paying an indepednent shop do what is called a " Big three upgrade" The factory cable can be retained while a larger gauge wire is used to come of the alternator to battery and bigger ground wires are used. The kit runs around 50.00 before shipping and I'll post a link below along with info on removing the alternator.
