Having problems with your 1999 Kia Sephia ?

I need to replace the starter on my 1999 Kia Sephia and I would like to do it myself because I can't afford the mechanics bill.

Hi,
This starter changes just like most starter. 3 bolts and remove the wiring. Make sure to disconnect the battery first before starting the repair. It is pretty straight forward with any starter removal. Here is an excerpt from someone who made the same repair
"I removed the Air Intake tube. I also removed the battery and put it on
\015\012the side! One the right side of the engine, from above I was able to
\015\012remove 2 of the bolts holding on the starter. I then jacked up the car
\015\012and was able, with considerable gymnastics, to remove the bottom bolt.
\015\012Point - Only use a 14mm wrench or socket. From back on top, I was able
\015\012to slide the starter to the right and remove the power cable and the
\015\012solanoid cable. Down at the NAPA Store in my town, they put the old
\015\012starter on the bench and it failed 5 out of the 6 tests! I picked up a
\015\012new one - minus the $60 core charge, for $105 with tax, put it in and
\015\012the car starts like a dream. Total time for this amatuer; 3 hours."
