I have the bolts off, but can't seem to get the heat shield out. Is there anything else I need to remove?
Kia Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 3 years ago
No they just sometimes have to be manipulated around so they come off. If the 02 sensor wire gets in the way and you plan to replace the sensor you can cut the wires at the sensor to make it easier, (I normally do), thanks
