Checking the parking brake (Hand type)

Check the stroke of the parking brake by counting the number of "clicks" heard whilst fully applying it from the released position. Also, the parking brake alone should securely hold the vehicle on a fairly steep grade. If the stroke is more or less than specified, we recommend that the system be inspected by an authorised kia dealer.

Stroke: 6~7 clicks at a force of 20 kgf (44 lbf, 196 N).
