Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hello, I'm not sure what model kia this is but I would venture to guess that the issue is a rubber/plastic coupling inside the steering gear. There is a technical service bulletin about it that I have attached. I hope this helps. If you have any other questions or comments feel free to go ahead and I will answer as soon as I can.
