Hello. After checking all databases that I have access to, the instructions for this car all seem to be the same. This is the information all the programs have.

  1. Disconnect the battery negative terminal first, then the positive terminal.
  2. Disconnect the alternator connector, and remove the cable from alternator "B" terminal.
  3. Remove the drive belt.
  4. Pull out the through bolts and then remove the alternator(A).


  1. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Kia directions are rather lacking for the alternator.

You will need to remove the hood latch, the upper radiator support, then the cooling fans and lift the alternator up and out.
