  1. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hey all, I'm planning on installing a new head unit along with a single 12" subwoofer in the trunk. Obviously I have to run power to the amp for the woofer, but I'm not exactly sure where I can get wires through into the cabin. So here I am asking if anybody has any pointers or pictures to...

    It was time to change the cabin air filter on our 2017 Kia Soul. I created a video for my YouTube channel that demonstrates the steps to replace the cabin air filter on a 2017 Kia Soul 2.0L engine.
  3. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I recently purchased my Kia in June of this tear. If I have the AC on recirculation, I can still smell outside smells. Like if I am driving behind a diesel, or an older car with a poorly tuned engine. Has anyone else noticed this issue? DO you folks think this is something a dealership could...

    I want to rig some small fans and a solar panel to keep air moving through my car when it's parked so it doesn't turn into an oven. It seems to me that the best place to do this would be in/at the cabin exhaust vent. Anyway, I need a little help from the Kia community: Where is the cabin...
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi all, This is on my 2011 Kia Soul !. Got a bit of a strange one; some time over the past month or so, the wife and I started noticing that we were hearing more engine noise inside the passenger cabin than we had been before. It did not seem to be a gradual increase, but rather not there one...

    My wife started to complain of headaches while driving our 2011 Soul. She had some days off, didn't drive the car, and the headaches disappeared. Today she drove a longer drive and had again the headache appear. No smells in the cabin, but as we know CO and CO2 don't smell. Are there any...

    It's been four years since I replaced my cabin filter. Took it out and honestly wasn't shocked at how dirty it was. Here's a closeup of the build up of dirt in the grooves. It's only eight screws. Pull out the glove box. Flip a lever and it comes out. Very easy to do yourself. The...

    My wife was driving the car and experienced smoke in the cabin originating from the rear hatch. The rear wiper was on without the switch being on. I was out of town so I had my son remove a number of fuses. When I got home I removed the rear hatch interior cover....the wiring harness was a total...

    Began looking around for Gen1 cabin filters and see the OEM run about $18 while there are many non-OEM for as low as $7. Has anybody tried the non-OEM filters or it is recommended to stay with the OEM?? (To clarify, I mean filters trying to imitate OEM, not filters that have a different...

    Scenario* Soul was parked outside for about a week, during the week some storms with heavy rain came through. Upon getting in the car the smell of mildew was strong and it turned out that the passenger footwell was soppy wet (looked like it ran down the side of the center console). *possible...

    Anyone know where on Gods green Earth you can obtain a Gen 2 cabin air filter replacement? Gen 2s have been out for more than 2 years now seems someone could manufacture these.

    Bought my '14 Soul in April of 2014 and I now have about 12500 miles on her! Everything is great except the excessive RATTLING!!! Trunk rattles, passenger side door rattles and rear side airbag component in headliner rattles. Really disappointed and may trade it in...otherwise I still love the...

  16. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I know, everyone is groaning. Not again. I have looked everywhere. Can someone give me a step by step instruction. The book says open the glove box, remove the cabin door. How? I don't want to start pulling on stuff. Is the door where the light is? The picture in the book sucks. I know...

    I know TechnoMage loves the fresh breeze cabin filter replacement. Does anyone else have an opinion about the scent of these? Thinking of ordering one for my first change in a few months. Thanks. BTW, you can still get a $3 rebate here: http://framfreshbreeze.com/rebates.aspx

    I need to buy one and I can only find the two different ones on eBay: an OEM type and the Fram fresh breeze carbon style. I never liked the way my 2012 Soul+ smells inside and I assume it is the cabin filter, so should I go ahead and try the carbon filter? The filter is definitely in need of...
