  1. 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...
  2. My KIA SOUL door doesn't open from inside or outside

    New Member Introductions
    Hello everyone and thank you for having me in your group. I am currently facing a severe door problem with my 2010 KIA SOUL as the door doesn't open from outside nor from inside. I do not know if the problem is on both sides as from inside we have locked the specific button for the children...
  3. Increased engine noise inside passenger cabin

    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...
  4. 2017 Soul Base Water inside hatch

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have only seen one post in the Gen I side about this. When I get the car washed at an automatic wash, there are streaks of water that comes and leaves droplets on the back window. It loos as if its coming out from the corners of the third brake light. When I first saw the droplets I thought...
  5. Painting inside headlights

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hi everyone, I'm really interested in painting the inside of the headlights almost identical to the ones pictured below (The Voice edition). Although I've seen multiple videos on how to do this, I'm not confident enough to be sure I won't screw it up, and I don't have $500 for a new set of...

  7. Dried up condensation marks inside of headlight

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I've got the HID headlights. Noticed as I was wiping them down that there are dried water or some sort of reflective coating marks on the inside of the driver's headlight lens. Anyone else seen this? It's not a big deal really as it doesn't affect light output, but I'm wondering if it's even...

  9. Anyone hang a hammock *inside* the Soul for camping?

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I can't for the life of me figure out how to do it, but I feel there is a way!! Most vandweller types who do this just hang ends of the hammock out through the back hatch/front door, which works in a pinch but endangers the weatherstripping and also would be a disaster in the rain. People with...

  12. Inside Air Flow Path Question

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Can anybody clarify the path of airflow within the air system of the Gen1 Souls? I am guessing the default air flow path is: Intake --> Evaporator --> Heater Coil --> Exhaust However, even if that is correct I am still left wondering about the setting where the temperature control is...

  14. Injen CAI on 1.6 GDI AMAZING! Details inside...

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    So, I debated doing any modification to the drivetrain on my Soul due to the fear of voiding the best part of the warranty on my car, but eventually I got bored with other mods and gave up on the woeful suspension mods commercially available. This lead me to an intake system. I had all the...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I purchased my new Soul base back on 5-22-14, and now that the sun is setting early and hitting the windshield at the right angle I can see the marks from the suction cups used to install the windshield at the factory. Has anyone else had this problem? I will be talking to the service guy when...

  19. Door automatically locks; can be opened from inside while in drive

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Okay, I have finally found a problem with my Soul... Whenever I shift the car out of park, the doors automatically lock. However, if the door handle is pulled on, it pulls the lock into the unlock position and the doors automatically open. So, I could be driving 55 mph down the road and the...
