  2. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I just discovered rather accidentally, and then figured out the particulars to force the transmission controller in my 2018 KIA Soul (Turbo with the Dual Clutch Transmission) to self calibrate the clutch touch adjustment. Normally this is done at a dealer using the KDS diagnostic tool. If...

    Hello All, I'm the recent owner of a silver 2014 Kia Soul+. My driver's side headlight is noticeably higher than the passenger side light. I found the adjustment but don't have a long enough allen wrench to get through the "funnel" that leads to the adjustment. Any tips? Thanks in advance...
  4. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    Howdy - I have a 2014 soul exclaim and the driver headlight is pointed quite a bit higher than the passenger. There's no obvious adjustment screw - and googled it without any luck. I saw a diagram showing an adjustment from the top but I don't see anything to turn? Any info would be greatly...

    My driver's headrest seems to be tilted too far forward. We have adjusted the whole thing all the way back, but the cushion is still too far forward. I just had to remove it altogether. I would like to put it back in, if it can be adjusted. Any tips??
  6. How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    Forgive me if I've missed a thread on this. I've been looking everywhere on instructions to adjust my headlights. I feel they are aimed too high. So far, about the only guess I have on how to do this is let air out of the front tires and pump up the rears. Anyone have a better idea?
  7. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I just bought a 2016 used + and I'm trying to understand the radio adjustment.. So I go to radio, sound, move the lines to reduce base and even out front/back left/right volume, but I must be missing something cause it doesn't seem to increase the treble enough..The base is vibrating my...

    On most vehicles there is two adjuster nuts. I see two rubber pieces there. What am I missing?? Thanks! :)
  9. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I'm at 72,000 miles on my 2013 1.6L. I searched but couldn't find a writeup on doing a valve adjustment. I was surprised to see that this car doesn't have hydraulic valve adjusters. What type of valve clearance mechanism does it have? screw and locknut? shims? Also where do I turn the motor...
  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I've done a search and found a few others that are bothered by this… Has anybody tried to adjust the sensitivity of the Auto Headlight sensor? I must be getting old, but the gages and navi screen are way too bright (even at their lowest settings) in the evening before the system switches to...
  11. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    Anyone know where the adjusters are and if a special tool is needed. My near-side light is way off, beam is angled towards on-coming traffic. Only realised how bad it was in the recent fog when I was able to track the beam.
  12. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hi, I installed HID's over the summer and I adjusted the beam down so its not so blinding for on coming traffic. But its been buggin me that i can't find a adjustment for left and right. Does anyone know if you can? Because mine point to far to the right for my liking. Thanks for any info you...
  13. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    With everyone wanting to go up to 18's or 20's could you let us know what you've done to keep the speedometer/odometer reading correctly. The tire O.D. is different from the stock 16 inch tires which will affect both of these. If you have the 18's and just change rims your ok. Thanks in advance.
  14. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My hood is out of alignment (passenger versus driver-side seams)and needs a little adjusting. Can anybody give me some tips on how best to align it so I don't just dork it up through trial and error. Don't know if I might need to loosen the hinge bolts and the strike area or ...??? Thanks for...
  15. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I can't find anything about this in the manual, but on a video review of the Soul, the driver/actor demonstrated this: he pulled the visor to block the sun on his side window, and then--voila!--pulled it BACKWARDS while still parallel to the side window on its support rod--COOL--a visor...

    Does anyone else think that the driver's seat in the 4U should go back farther than it does? I am not super tall, 5' 10", and I have the seat as far back as it goes. My 4U is an automatic. I did sit in a base 5 speed and the seat went way back. I have not had an opportunity to try another 4U...
