KIA Sportage MII 2006 - manual gearbox, I am having trouble…

Customer Question
KIA Sportage MII 2006 -...
KIA Sportage MII 2006 - manual gearbox, I am having trouble changing gears into first and reverse when the vehicle is cold the garage says that it is the hydrolytic input and exit system that needs changing but they are having difficulty in getting it in France. Before I buy it online can you confirm this is the problem, where is it on the gearbox and could I do it myself without a vehicle lift. The KIA has done only 150K is this normal that the gearbox has this trouble?

HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Based upon the symptoms, I do agree with the diagnosis. It is locate inside the gearbox and requires dropping the gearbox and opening it up. This requires a lift and extensive knowledge of tearing down a gearbox and speciality tools

150K is in the range when we start seeing gearbox failures on Kias

Can you supply me with parts numbers and where to get the right part as my mechanic has problems getting hold of KIA parts. A diagram of the piece would also be useful. I've used http://oscaro.com/ in the past for parts in Europe.
