  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My front passenger window will go down but not up from BOTH the driver side and passenger side controls. I've removed the motor from the front passenger side door and tried it on the rear passenger door (I took this apart to test) and the front passenger motor is working great. I then tried the...

    My back passenger side window is not rolling up or down. For a little while the driver control switch would only roll it down, but the passenger would be able to roll it back up. Now neither is responding. Any ideas on where to start? Motor, I’m guessing? I believe I’m out of warranty for...
  3. The Detailing Corner
    Anyone have any tricks for cleaning all of the rear window on a 2019 (or similar years). I am having trouble cleaning all the way to the bottom edge. I have one of those window cleaning wands and that gets to most areas, but I can't get behind the 3rd brake light. The other issue is how to...

    sadly, just a couple of days after purchase of optima ex, I noticied that the window trim on the door was rubber rather than on all my other kias. anyone know of a source for finding a replacement part for the window sill rubber? I had a 2013 optima sx with the rubber and within...

    I'm surprised to see this on an Optima. Haven't been able to find out where to buy these anywhere. Let me know if you're able to find it.

    Well, at 7k miles and the back windows are very slow to go up. I even have to use my hand while pushing the button to get them up ?

    Given my 2013 optima has probably had the rear windows down 40 times in it's lifetime and after reading others had this same issue I figured I'd do a little postmortem on this thing for you guys. My issue was odd in that not only was the typical symptom there where the window would go down but...
  8. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    O.K. I got in touch with my Buddy and here is the answer on what to do. He has it on his Kia Soul. Said the sun can be bright outside and the sun hitting the windows and you do not feel it. I understood they also have a clear to go on the inside of the windshield also. Do not ask me where he got...

    Hey guys as many know, I have a 2011 optima lx and wondered if anyone has upgraded to the sx switches, and if there is a way to make the front two windows automatic down and up on a lx. Thanks in advance if anyone has ideas!
  10. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Thankfully nothing was taken/severely damaged, how ever there is a nice little ding on my window lining and I would like my car to look as new as possible. Any idea where I can find the part to replace it? I was looking at rain guards as well, maybe something to replace the piece as a whole. Any...

    I'm a little annoyed that the power window switch in the driver's door panel appears to be flaking out in a car that's only 5 years old (2012 optima)...I have original switches in my thunderbird that are 30 years old now.. anyways, I'm looking on rock auto to buy a replacement and replace it...

  14. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Considering purchasing a small amount of darker wrap to "extend" the dark window greenhouse side profile into the D-pillar, I think it would give it a unique look. Almost reminds me of a Tesla Model S. Crudely "photoshopped" version (aka MS Paint) using a photo I grabbed yesterday in Asbury Park.
  15. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Not liking them. My original idea was to plasti dip the trim pieces. Wish the stripes were level. Reverse them to see in black. Here's my wheel I had on my Sonata. Waiting for set of TPMS before I can install.
  16. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hey guys - anyone else here have the window visors on their car for a couple years and noticed they are very faded or sub bleached? They used to have such a nice shine on them (like tinted windows), but now look very bad especially on a black car. I know they are cheap, but prefer not to...

    Searched and found my front passenger window is being weird now. Just before it stops when you close it, it rotates a degree or two and does not seal like it used to.:( Anybody else see this and/or how do I fix it?
  18. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I just noticed today that there's no weather stripping in between the panoramic roof and rear window. Never payed attention I guess. Can I see pics of yours . Just curious.
