  2. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Wasn't paying attention while backing up this morning and j-u-u-ust scraped a curb corner. 4" gouge with no breaks in the plastic but scuffed right behind the back tire. Can't really see it from 99% of angles. I was gonna take a 0000 grade steel wool and gently flatten out the gouge. Any...

    Hi Folks: I found a small plastic cap on the passenger side of the rear bumper. I pulled it open and it looks like a metal "pipe" attached to the "frame". I imagine this is for wiring, maybe a rear camera mount? Anyone know what this is? Thanks

    Hi, hope this thread is in the correct forum I was wondering your thoughts on this. Ice did a number on my front bumper - I’ll blame the ice, not the driver :culpability: Best I can tell, this damaged piece is part of the whole front bumper cover. I expect it will be expense to...

    It's been REALLY hot out here! About 110F! My car was parked in the sun for a few hours, then I parked in my garage. The next morning I noticed a vertical streak of white "something" on the right rear bumper area. I got a wet paper towel and tried to remove it. Nope. Not water base I guess...

    Just applied this today. Got the idea from another KIA Soul Forum member. I thought the textured black plastic was a bit too much and needed a more "finished" look. I like it! Subtle. Tasteful. I ordered it from Amazon. Made a template from Legal Pad paper (start with a rectangle 26" x 6.5"...

    I'm planning on buying a bottle of the TurtleWax rinseless car wash&wax (not their "Zip" product, but the other rinseless one they offer) for my brand new yellow Soul. I've watched several videos on how to apply it- no rubbing, careful microtowel drying, a section at a time, etc. So I think I...

    Any good ideas on protecting front/rear bumpers from parallel parking pitfalls? Living in Chicago most people don't know how to park so they hit your car. I want to minimize the bumper destruction from license plate dings and such from other cars when possible. Luckily my soul has the "black...

  15. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    So since I am new here and have gotten great ideas from you all I thought I'd share my small modification I came up with. Instead of buying the sort of slick rear bumper applique for my dog to bust ass on, I did some brainstorming and came up with using surf board traction padding. It's...

    I've been browsing the site for a couple weeks now. And judging by the title, someone is going to type out a condescending rude response for me to search the forum. I've searched time an time again and can't come up with what I need. I need to figure out how to remove the front bumper cover on a...

    Hello, I don't know if this thread has already been discussed and I don't know how to search information about it so it may be a repost... Here is the situation: I want to know what's the difference between the front bumper of a 2011 Soul vs 2012 Soul because I have the 2011 and I wish to know...
  18. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    First off, let me say that I really LOVE my little Gertrude (Kia Soul) and you hardly ever hear me say anything negative about her, but...... Kia put these wimpy little plastic brackets on the bottom of the front bumper to hold it to the steel frame (below the radiator.) Today while changing...

    I wanted to buy a 2014 Plus manual to tow behind my RV but no manual in it this year. I may go with the auto and use a tow dolly. I need 7 inches ground clearance at the front bumper. Anyone know what it is or have one they can measure? Thanks
