#1 of 17 Security Cover for 7 Seater Rondo
Jul 10, 2007 (8:22 am)
I was told I couldn't have a security cover for the rear compartment of the 7 seater Rondo. Only the 5 seater has the hardware. I found a Rondo site in England that sells the parts needed and I just finished installing the rear cover after acquiring all the parts. The cover can be removed in about 2 minutes if I ever need the 3rd row of seats. I made a slide show of all the steps I took for installation if you care to click on the link.

If you haven't already this would make for a great guide on Carspace. Click the "Guides" link above to submit it!

Wow, this is great thanks. Could you post the site in England where you got the parts?

In England the Rondo is called the CARENS. Here's the site:
Click on "Design my Carens". When the page changes, click on the picture of the Carens/Rondo as the cars move across the screen. When you do that it will show you all the options and accessories that are available.
#7 of 17 Help getting a cargo cover

First and foremost... THANK YOU for sharing your experience regarding the cover installation. We have a 7 seater that we just got last week and i really really would like the cargo cover in Grey. A few questions... i've called Kia USA and they say that don't sell these at all. Is there a possibility that your friend in Europe could get the parts for me if I pay for everything. Also... would cutting and installing this as you did above effect any warrenty?? Hmmm another question... you said 'two mins' to remove it... it is a matter of just pulling the bar out correct? Thanks... Kary

To answer your questions. I'm sorry but I really can't ask my friend in England to get involved in ordering parts for anyone but me. With the bracket number KME1DP8155WK hopefully you can either go to the British site mentioned and contact them to send the parts or really bug your parts dealer to get hold of them for you.
British Site: http://www.kia.co.uk/designMyCarens.asp
The gray cover is available from the same place I got my Beige. They are all the same price ($204) plus shipping and the link to the site is:

As far as warranty. There's no worry about affecting your warranty on anything except what you work on. The inside panels do have to be cut (there's nothing behind where you cut) and only if you cut and somehow managed to drill right through to the outside body panel would that outside panel not be covered anymore under the rustproofing warranty. In other words, warranty is only affected by what you do to a particular part. If you lower your car with lowering springs, if the engine blows up, they can't say your springs had anything to do with it, BUT, after lowering it, the front suspension broke, THEN they could say the springs help put unnecessary load on the front end.

Thanks for the link to the parts people i couldn't get that far on their web site. With the hope that i'll get the brackets i did order the grey one and will post how I am able to get the brackets from UK and here to the states... unless i find something else that will work... we'll see. I am excited that you've been able to help me this far. Thanks again. Kary

Your welcome. Yes, it's hard to get to the right page on The Kia Parts People site. I was given the exact page link by MedicineMan which is the only way I could find it. Good luck on the brackets. I've looked up things before on British sites and was able to have them shipped to me without a problem using my credid card.
