  1. Which trim levels have tinted glass?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    My SO wiped out her driver's door on some sort of concrete post and she's beside herself at defiling her beloved Soul. I assured her that doors were relatively cheap and easy to replace, and then started looking for one. The problem is that when I search, this question comes up; Is the door...
  2. Rear hatch glass leak

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Anyone else have the glass on the back hatch leak? Noticed mine was leaking not at first,just thought the back glass was dirty for some strange reason. But noticed upon running it through a car wash,that sure enough,water will be running down the back glass on the inside!! Guess I’ll be...
  3. Wax the glass?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Since my Soul has the sun roof I guess about half of the roof is glass. I will be waxing the car with tech wax soon and I am wondering if I should wax the glass also. What about the rest of the greenhouse, does anybody wax that. I like to use Nu Finish or Meguiar's Tech Wax because they are...
  4. Solar Glass UV protected?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Can anyone give a definitive answer on weather the Solar Glass on my Soul's windshield has UV protection, and if so, what percentage? I can't find info on UV protection on this stock factory glass. I'll be parking in the sun a lot this summer and want to protect the dash and interior as much...
  5. 2010 Hatchback glass replacement

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    has anyone replaced their own hatchback glass? is it held in with sealer or does it mount in with some kind of frame screwed to the metal?
  6. hard water spots on side glass of 2014 KIA Soul Plus

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I am getting what looks like hard water spots on both side window glass of my 2014 KIA Soul+. I have tried just about everything including going thru twice in the automatic car wash. The weird part it is that it is only on the side glass and no where else. Has anyone else had this problem or...
  7. Blotches/film on all glass when wet

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I posted an issue I had on my 2011 Soul ( my Post here is similar to this title) that took a new windshield to fix and Bon Ami in water with a scrubber on the rest of the glass, resulting in micro scratching of the glass. I sit in a 2016 Soul with the EXACT same issue. ONLY when wet, humid or...
  8. Glass pack! Resonator delete

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    So I already deleted my resonator. And I didn't get anything out of it. This is all very budgeted so mods are slow but they're getting done lol. I'm putting a glass pack on this afternoon. If people want to here it you can go to my Instagram haha mia_nick (picture of a guy falling down some stairs)
  9. The Importance of Winter Wiper Blades and Glass Treatment
    Snow, ice, freezing rain, and frigid temperatures make winter driving treacherous; nevertheless you're prepared, right? But what about your wiper blades? If they're the same ones that baked on your windshield all summer then you could be in for problems. How do you know if your wiper blades...
  10. Scratch on Window and Headlight

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So I guess I'm coming here to vent and ask for solutions on how to deal with this. I spent most of my day in my college class and I come back to see that my window has been scratched and my headlight as well. Needless to say I'm really pissed off about this. I was wondering is there anyway to...
  11. Factory privacy glass?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Can someone tell me what level of window tinting comes from the factory? I'm interested in the window tinting that is listed as privacy glass with the auto tranny package, on a base model. As I understand, the rear and hatch windows are tinted, but not the front windows (or the windshield.)...
  12. Privacy Glass VLT

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    One of the first things I'll want to do when the weather warms up a bit is tint the drivers and passengers doors to match the rest of the side and back windows. Can anyone tell me how dark those windows are? Ohio law doesn't allow any darker than 50% VLT on drivers and passenger doors, but I...
  13. Panels covering a-pillars fell off the car!

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I'm new on the forums, and to be honest, may not be much of a "regular" here because the Kia Soul is my wife's car, not my own. I'm just posting because she recently had a crazy problem with hers that I'm wondering about .... Yesterday, she was on the highway driving home from work and she...
  14. Blotches on windshield/hatch glass when wet

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    If anyone can lend some help on this issue I would appreciate it. I have only owned the car a month. The first time I used the washer/wipers, the windshield shows some sort of pattern as they move the water. It's hard to see it when just using the wipers, since it dries so fast. When it rained...
  15. Rubber by door glass discolored

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    The rubber triangle between the back door glass and the rear quarter glass is changing color...aka fading. Can anything be done to it so it looks like it did new?
  16. Rear glass shattered "Whats up"

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Atlanta summers are warm but have never had auto glass shatter. Anybody else having a problem? Dealer not much help, not warranted and said it would take 5 days to order. Not acceptable with daily thunder storms. Local glass shop installed in 24Hr.
  17. Windshield Cost

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hey if you guys have any question regarding cost on a windshield and or other glass on your soul.. I can help, I work in a glass shop doing installation and paperwork, Of course prices are different everywhere you gou, but i can give you a good roundabout price! ;)
  18. C-Pillar Quarter Glass Plates

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Anyone thought about getting these? I kinda think it would look weird on the inside seeing the adhesive on the window but these look kinda cool. Especially if you put some color vinyl in there to show through the holes...
