Rib Belt
I Need to Change a V-Ribbed Belt on a 2005 Kia Sorento. Can Someone Help?

I took my Kia Sorento in to get an Oil Change and the guy said that I really needed to change my V-Ribbed Belt. They are going to charge me $300 bucks. HOWEVER, I’d like to do it myself. Does anyone know how to change it and can give me some hints OR is it the type of engine that’s hard to change a belt and should be taken to the shop?

If it is the TIMING belt price seems in line .Unless you are very mechanical avoid if not done properly engine damage possible. If it is the ACCESSORY belt it is within the possibility of most Doti yourselfers.
