  1. Captains chair post thingy removal

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    That's actually a nice arm rest and I've been eyeing it for some now. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰ I just haven't told myself to buy it yet for some reason. If you do purchase this let us know how you like it and give us a review. That's what I may need to get me to purchase this. πŸ‘
  2. RB Accent Photos

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    Good to see a thread like this. Here's a few of my HyperDai. πŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ Pics are from my hit and run accident and $4400 later to what it is so far. Enjoy.
  3. Front plastic spoiler / lip

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    Oh I didn't know the 2017 was the same. πŸ˜‚ If the lip is the same as mine then it will fit. Once you get the lip you'll have to raise the front of your car to get better access under the car. Once done take the lip and play with the way it will fit so you'll have an idea of what you'll be...
  4. How do you pull ball joint of lower control arm from steering knuckle?

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    I would thing he was saying to hit the steering knuckle since it's pretty tough. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰ These control arms are stamped steel that won't take much beating.
  5. Front plastic spoiler / lip

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    Any pictures of your front end? Hard to say until we can see. πŸ‘πŸ˜‰
  6. Transmission fluid check?

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    It may not be enough fluid line pressure to engage the next gear quick enough, hence the slippage at full throttle. This is quite common on most automatics as most people want smooth shifts.
  7. RB Accent using Kia Rio springs

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    Thank you and you too. πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž I'm anxious for the coilovers on too but won't do them until my rear axle is ready to swap. I already ya e the s.s. Brake lines and calipers but need the rotors, pads, and some new dust shields to complete the new rear axle. I'm changing out the rear bushings and...
  8. RB Accent using Kia Rio springs

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    Well I'm bored and didn't get much done this time at home but I did get some pictures taken so I'll post them up. πŸ˜‰ Have a Happy Thanksgiving to all on the forums. πŸ™πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž
  9. Brake dust shield

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    If they're discs they should be the same. Only difference in the rear disc setup of the Kia to the Accent is the Kia uses the banjo bolt at the top while the Accent is on the bottom of the caliper. Other than that they're identical and interchangeable. Good luck. πŸ‘
  10. Engine suddenly pinging like mad

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    So glad to hear you got things working again for the most part. Good to hear about the now almost absent pinging but I would have never guessed the upper and lower engine mounts going bad so soon. 🀨 It's also good to hear about the brake boost line possibly causing Issues as Well . I'll be...
  11. How to replace lower engine mount , aka roll rod or torque strut

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    If you'd have supported the engine so it doesn't drop it would've inserted right in. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰ Seriously. I've done my lower mount 2 times and both times supported the engine with a 2x4 and never had an issue with installation. Good to see you got it in though. πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž
  12. Front plastic spoiler / lip

    Read the above post. 😎
  13. Servo turns off by itself while driving

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    The steering is assisted by an electrical motor to effectively give you power steering. By the sounds of your problem it's almost as if you're losing a ground somewhere which would make the steering gofirm with the power loss. Here is a link that may explain a bit more about the system...
  14. RB Accent using Kia Rio springs

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    I'll post pic when they arrive. πŸ‘ They shipped yesterday so hopefully arrive next week when I'm home. 😎
  15. RB Accent using Kia Rio springs

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    Well just a tiny update for the car and so happy this turned out the way it did. I ordered a set of the DGR hy-28 coilovers for the Accent in the street version with 6kg front and rear springs. From all the reading I've been doing and also from a review from the guys at KDMTuners, these DGR...
  16. '13 Auto - Major delay in acceleration

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    This is one of the reasons why I do not like an auto transmission. My Z24 drag/ street car had a 4t40e electronic 4 speed auto but I installed an electronic shift kit where you could adjust the line pressure and the torque converter lockup with the kit. I ran 75% full line pressure and full...
  17. Lowering Springs!

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    Anything from 2012 to 2017 years whether it's the Kia or Hyundai. Their chassis is the same for bot models.πŸ‘
  18. Accent easy park bulb replacement in front cluster?

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    I agree. All lamps have been changed throughout the car and never had to remove any lens assembly for the change. Nimble fingers help too. πŸ˜‰
  19. '13 Auto - Major delay in acceleration

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    I have 0 problem with acceleration on my 2015 RB. Mines a stick so that may make a difference. πŸ€” I'm also running lightweight rims and an overall smaller diameter rim/ tire combination from the stock diameter which effectively changes the gearing for better take off than stock. Been lucky...
  20. Lowering Springs!

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    Yes they will. I have these on my car at the moment and still using the stock struts and shocks. The ride is awesome and still compliant while being stiff enough to handle the corners. Hers is.a picture of how it sits. These were for the Kia Rio from H&R. I'll be getting a set of DGR...
