KNOCK SENSOR

2002 Kia Rio • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic •

How do I replace the knock sensor on a 2002 Kia Rio? I did a OBD II scanner and I got the Knock Sensor circuit malfunction. How do I remove the intake manifold support bracket?

Bracket is bolted on. Removing the bolts would get it off but process does not require bracket to be removed.

Removal & Installation
Turn ignition off. Disconnect knock sensor 3-pin harness connector. Locate knock sensor, on cylinder block. See Fig. 13. Remove knock sensor from cylinder block. To install, reverse removal procedure.
