Kia had my wifes car for a month for a transmission problem. When we got it back both rear view mirrors had thick black goo leaking from the seam where they connect to the car. My first thought is that they have been removed and replaced. Anybody have any thoughts?


That sounds plausible,but very suspicious.You are sure that you never saw this goo before I assume.Was it at a dealer?I would go examine where you took it and look for a couple things.\015\0121.Transmission work means it was lifted up.Look near ... 2004 Kia Sorento

After replacing timing belt on 2001 kia optima and the other 2 belts the engine still vibrates and has that "roar" sound enough vibration to make rear view mirror appear to be shaking when looking in it-what is the problem-i really do not trust the mechanic's word. This is the 3rd belt I have had to put on this car, they said the tensioner was bad causing the belt to wear out. $800.00 and now this noise, it was making this noise when I took car in but now it is louder


It sounds as though the timing may be off. The belt may be okay, but if the timing is off, it will cause the motor to vibrate. Also... if your car keeps chewing up timing belts, there may be a defect in the timing gears or belt guides causing the bel ... 2001 Kia Optima

The internal rear view mirror on my 1999 Toyota Avalon just fell off and I'm trying to glue it back on. I got the Permatex methacrylate ester adhesive from Autozone to glue it back on but the instructions with the adhesive say to remove the mounting button from the mirror and glue this button on the windshield and then mount the mirror on the button after the adhesive is cured. I can't figure how to remove this button. There is no set screw. Any ideas? Thanks Hal
