Closing the hood
Features of your vehicle / Hood / Closing the hood

1. Before closing the hood, check the following:

  • All filler caps in the engine compartment must be correctly installed.
  • Gloves, rags or any other combustible material must be removed from the engine compartment.

2. Return the support rod to its clip to prevent it from rattling.

3. Lower the hood until it is about 30 cm (1 ft.) above the closed position and let it drop. Make sure that it locks into place.

Kia Carnival: Closing the hood. WARNING - Fire risk WARNING - Fire risk

Do not leave gloves, rags or any other combustible material in the engine compartment. Doing so may cause a heat-induced fire.

Kia Carnival: Closing the hood. WARNING - Unsecured engine hood WARNING - Unsecured engine hood

Always double check to be sure that the hood is firmly latched before driving away. If it is not latched, the hood could fly open while the vehicle is being driven, causing a total loss of visibility, which might result in an accident.

The support rod must be inserted completely into the hole whenever you inspect the engine compartment. This will prevent the hood from falling and possibly injuring you.
