I just changed my brothers on a 2001 kia rio. You have to go from the bottom. There is a tensioning adjustment on the top you have to undo, as well as a bolt on bottom. It is hard to get it out because there is not a lot of room, i remember it hitting either a p/s line or the rack, and being frustrated. I used a floor jack and block of wood under the engine and jacked it up to reposition it. It gave me enough room to get it out. Remove the bottom bolt and disconnect the wiring from it and it should drop out with some effort. Getting it back in was harder. Once you get it back into position connect the wiring before you bolt it up all the way, put the lower bolt in, put the belt on, then back to the adjustment on top. Make sure everything is tight and you should be done.

SOURCE: resetting airbag on 2002 kia rio
Typical code readers (OBDII) won't touch the airbag lights. Neither will disconnecting the battery and waiting. If the airbag light is flashing, there's a code involved. The system may or may not work when needed. If it's on steady, the system is failed and will not deploy when needed. Typically, it's a connector in the various harnesses involved. Unfortunately, the Kia shop manuals just say "replace everything" so they're no help. The dealer has the very expensive code reader to read & reset the airbag light. In other words, $$$.
