Kia Motors Corporation was formally known as Kyungsung Precision Industry. It was founded in 1944 and majored in the manufacture of bicycle parts and steel tubing. It was the first company to produce the first domestic bicycle, the Samchully, in South Korea in 1951.

One of the most time-consuming DIY tasks is replacing your Kia’s parking light, turning signal or headlight bulb. The trouble starts when you need to find the right replacement size. A light bulb size chart, especially one built exclusively for Kia, may come in handy whether you want to install SMD bulbs, Light Emitting Diode bulbs or LED bulbs in your existing interior bulb lighting system. It’s also helpful where you need to replace your headlight bulb with Xenon Headlamps, High-Intensity Discharge (HID) bulbs or LED headlights.

The smartest way of using the replacement bulb size information would be to confirm each and every detail provided before putting it into practice. This is because sometimes, data providers do not provide any warranty. Confirm that your bulb sizes, bulb wattages, and bulb voltages are correct before doing anything else.
