Hi, I was taking out the assembly, took out the 3 nuts just fine, but then the fourth one is covered in rubber which i took off, and its some cone shaped contraption instead of a nut. What is this? And How do I remove it to take the assembly off? I am not a car guy whatsoever, so I am completely mystified why they would even do this in the first place. Why nut just put 4 nuts on? Thanks for your help in advance to remove the assembly.

ok so no one knows, i broke it off to get the assembly out. To anyone who cares, i had a trunk leak, tracked it back to a hair line crack in some poor welding. This just adds to my doubts of ever buying a kia again. In a few years may get that fisker ocean.

I ran into this and reached the same conclusion, breaking the plastic off the end in order to remove the housing. I have no idea how it's supposed to be done.
Hearing about the crack sucks, hopefully you can seal it off.
