  1. How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    This mod was completed on a 2016 base Soul. It should work for all 2014-2016 models and possibly other years. This is a quick and easy way to add a 12V power source that has constant power, has short wires and tucks neatly above the fuse panel just behind the fuse door. It's great for people...
  2. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I have a 2012 Soul + and I was wondering if anybody knew of any cheaper and easy to do mods I could do to it? I would like to do a Crown Royal shift boot and prob some under dash lights but is there anything else I could do? Thanks!
  3. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hello all, My 2014 Soul has been broken into 3 times in 5 months. Every time there has been a break-in, there has been no external damage, and I've only discovered the crime each time after I opened the door and saw the contents of my glovebox and armrest strewn about. The first time it...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So for what ever reason one of my lugnut studs is messed up. I think its the front passenger if I remember right. The beginning part of threads is stripped but I can still put a lugnut on. I Just ordered a set of wheels and want to fix it before they come. Just wondering if anybody knows if...
  5. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    So I was looking to replace the tweeters on my 2014. Naturally I googled and searched this forum. The only real information I found was this thread. The instructions apply to < 2014 models but since the vent assembly looks similar, I assumed the procedure would be the same. I went to work...

    hey guys, I am looking for a simpler way to remove the fog lights that doesn't involve removing the bumper and taking out the entire mounting bracket and everything. Upon looking at pictures of fog lights, there are two small, plastic screws on each side of the housing. They look like the hold...

  9. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    So, I have the base US 2012, and I thought the speakers were a tad on the garbage side. I decided to go with components 6.75 door and 1 inch tweeters (I originally had no tweeters). I removed the door panel and the speaker is in a goofy housing as we all know. So I cut the speaker out (cutting...
  10. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Haven't posted before and not a Soul owner as yet as I plan on purchasing a 2012 model. On vehicles that I've owned I normally install (front and rear) just regular flat black mud flaps that I see in sizes A, B, or C. But no matter what the size I utilize the screws that normally are already...

    Does anyone think that the interior scratches easy? I have a 2 inch scratch on my door handle on the inside and I know it probably can't be removed but what can I do to minimize the appearance?
  12. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So my wife had a slight run in with the side view mirror and the garage door jam last week and we are now in need of a new piece of trim. :mad::( There is nothing wrong with the mirror glass, or the painted part of the mirror frame. Only the black ring of trim that goes around the mirror is...
  13. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    This is the GPS bracket I built that slides into the gap above the sunglass holder door. First find an old bracket or small piece of metal, and bend it to make the right angle. trim it to fit with tinsnips or, in my case EMS shears Then, grind of any sharp edges and wrap in in electrical...
  14. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    So apparently I'm one of the few Soul owners who cannot stand the OEM tweeters. Consistently, I looked for replacements but didn't want to have to do too much customization. Here is what I came up with. Pioneer TST15 is a 3/4" soft dome tweeter that will literally fit into the factory housing...
  15. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    Instead of purchasing either the side marker lights or those stick-on chrome pieces, I put my husband to work. He does vinyl graphics. I had him cut a piece for the center of each side vent, which would cost a total of $5 at his shop (including installation). I used the color that will also be...
  16. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I'm new, and I know this sounds like a stupid question. Keep in mind I'm not a mechanic. Today we took a Soul for a test drive. This will be the first Kia we've ever owned; we've always had Geos and Fords. When my husband was checking out the engine, he couldn't find the oil filter. We've...
  17. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I'm thinking of putting mudflaps on my white Soul. Have any of you done that, and is it a relatively easy do it yourself job?
  18. Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Hey there, thinking about getting some LEDs for the wheel wells and door handles (see pics). Does anyone know if this is an easy install a non-mechanic (like me) can do, or is this something I should hire a pro to install? Also does anyone know if installation of third-party LEDs voids the...
