Kia personnel responded as follows: Hello Sandra, Receiving body repair information from Kia Motors in Korea has always been a challenge. In many instances, information required to simplify the repair does not exist. In effort to assist with the repair, Korea supplied the Amanti Body Manual. NOTE: The referenced body manual was attached to the e-mail sent to Ms. Martin.
