I went to stow my boot roller cover in the boot floor compartment of my new Sorento today, only to find Kia have changed the shape of the jack storage foam and it won't now fit above the jack! Anyone else found this problem?

Is your car fitted with side steps?  If it is there will most likely be an attachment on the top of the jack that has to be removed for it to fit into the storage foam.

Mine fits ok once the end covers are removed. These covers can be replaced over the top of the roller cover once it is in the recess.

Thanks people. I had no problem with my 2016 model but Keith you may have the solution - yes I do have side steps fitted to this one. I'll take another look later

The problem was the 'block' addition bolted to the jack to fit the side steps - not that I was told this or given any info about it!
I've now done some trimming to the polystyrene tray and it all fits snugly under the floor as it should. Thanks guys
