sorry for the delay............

This is not unusual.........These mechanisms have a binding problem, which causes the arms to bend, or the plastic gears to strip.
There are no "incidental parts" (gears, servo, laser, motor, etc.), The complete Mechanism needs to be Replaced.
apprx $285.00 - 365.00 depending on Part number & Shop

Many times you can find the same Model Number Unit On-Line, E-Bay, Salvage Yard, etc. for less than Repair.

hello!!
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 1 year ago.

sorry..........your original question did not show that??

I can post Kia procedures to remove complete Unit from the Dash, but there is no procedure available to take unit apart.
Will that work?
IF you are going to have the Unit Repaired, most shops will not repair, if the unit shows signs of tampering.
You also will find it hard to get another CD Mechanism, unless you know the Part Number & are a Distributor
