According to the KIA technicians’ reference, here is the process of replacing your starter.

Remove old starter.

Connect B-terminal wire.

Install washer and nut on B-terminal and tighten.

Connect S-terminal.

Lower intake manifold bracket into position and insert the two upper bolts.

Raise and support vehicle.

Place starter in position.

Insert the two upper starter bolts.

Insert lower starter bolt. NOTE: The starter may require adjustment after installation. If required, rotate the starter slightly to provide proper clearance.

Tighten the three starter bolts. Tighten the bolts to 27-40 lb-ft (37-54 N•m).

Insert lower bracket bolts and tighten. Tighten the bolts to 27-40 lb-ft (37-54 N•m)
