  1. 2015 Soul, hood release, won't unlatch

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Haven't been here for a long time, haven't had any issues...until today. Popped the hood release inside to check oil while getting gas. The hood did it's usual unlatch, but the lever you push on under the emblem won't completely release the hood. Anybody have any ideas?? Thank you.
  2. Kia hood emblem repaint/refinish?

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    So, if I can direct your attention to the picture here. You'll see the hood emblem peeling badly -- most of the paint is gone. It makes my otherwise sharp li'l buggy look a bit shabby. I've owned an '07 Sedona before, so I know the emblems have a bit of a problem in that regard. My thinking is...

  4. Hood protector film Ziebart

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    Has anyone had the film installed by Ziebart’s or another company. I'm wondering if it's worth it or not. I can get the entire hood, fenders and bumber covered for a decent price including some paint issues they are helping me out with. This will be the first car I treat with respect. I think...
  5. Hood prop rod noise driving me crazy!

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi everyone, I have a 2011 Kia Soul + and love it, except for the annoying hood prop rod (that is brand new) that rattles under the hood going over bumps. I would love to find a way to "revise" it so it will be quiet. I hate noises in a vehicle that really shouldn't be there. Any ideas? thanks

  7. Soul ! Hood Gaskets/Seal?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Greetings. I purchased a Soul ! on Black Friday 2018. I just took it in for the 3k oil change and when I got home from the dealer I decided to check the oil. I noticed the engine compartment seems pretty dirty for a fairly new car. I did note that there are a number of holes drilled at...
  8. Something rattling around inside hood?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Odd problem here: my 2013 has something rattling around inside the hood. When I say "inside", I mean inside the hollow part of the hood. I can't for the life of me figure out what it could be. It sounds almost like a loose nut, or a heavy acorn or similar. I can make whatever it is shift from...

They seem to be taped on ,d one on the left side is loose and is coming off is it necessary for that to be flush? Do they serve a purpose photo included. If anyone has the same issue maybe that...
  10. Cleaning Under the Hood

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I opened the engine compartment the other day to give someone a jump start and noticed a light dusting of dust over the engine components, mostly noticeable on any parts that were black (top of engine, battery and cover, heater hoses, fluid caps,etc) so of course I wiped down the entire engine...

  14. Kia Hood Cable

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    During a cold winter day I drove north to Vermont. My 2012 Soul started acting up quite a bit! RPMs wouldn't go over 2 or 3k. It wouldn't go over 35 mph and felt like if I went up hill it would just not have the power to do so. I pulled over and tried to pop the hood and the cable broke. I...
  15. Does anybody hand wax the hood, (the underside?)

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I wash the outside of my Kia Soul plenty. When I'm drying her off the last thing I do is "pop" the hood. Then, I wipe down the underside of the hood. (Plus, everything within easy reach, in the engine.) To me, under the hood, still looks brand new! I have been contemplating WAXING THE...

  19. Kia Hood Emblem fell off

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Anyone else lose the hood emblem?? I ran it through one of those automatic car washes at the local Shell, and when I got home, realized the hood emblem was now missing. Went back to look for it, but never found it. I see they only stick on with 2 posts that are not terminated and 2 sided...
