    Sometimes there is a U shaped clip above the ball socket that has to be removed, some times the ball socket has a hex nut at it's base that you unscrew from the body. Kia as a car manufacturer put a lot of great technical information and work shop manuals on line for free for Kia owners. www.kiatechinfo.com
