  1. Washer bottle/neck leaking

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Good morning and Happy Holidays, I havent been on here in quite some time. Our 2013 Soul has been a fantastic car. We havent had any real problems what so ever. Just now hit 30,000 miles. Upon filling the washer tank I noticed it leaks alot at the neck/tank joint. I'm guessing this is a slip in...
  2. 2011 soul. Water leaking into spare tire area

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So 2 weeks ago I looked in the spare tire area and found 3+ inches of water in it. Got it all out and didn't see any where it could be coming from. It rained again and again I had like half gallon to a gallon of water. Dried it out went underneath and smeared rtv silicone on over the grommets...
  3. Leaking oil out of my passenger side axle

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just finished replacing the transaxle on my 2011 MT Soul. The axles I only put a few hundred miles on before the transaxle swap. I had a differential with busted bearings and ended up methodically replacing every part of the drivetrain starting with the axles. Everthing seemed fine until i...
  4. water leaking in from dome light

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I had not been driving for a few days and when I got into my car, water was pouring in around the back seat dome light. The back seat was soaked through like a sponge and the back floor was wet. I have an dealer-installed sunroof, which was not open (if actually closes automatically when the car...
  5. Windshield Washer tank Leaking after repair?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Recently purchased 2010 Soul 2.0-78K miles-Washer tank leaked upon delivery-Dealer sent me to small local shop-Was told pump leaked, which was purportedly replaced-(At same time as front struts which still make "Clunk" noise on bumps-Another time on that..) Not sure they actually did...
  6. Water leaking into cabin, where to start looking?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    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...
  7. 2014 ! aircondition drip pan leaking?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    A few days ago it was really humid and hot in NYC. I turned on the AC. After about 15 minutes of driving i get home and see a trail of drips from the street and into my driveway. I followed the drips to a small forming puddle under the car. The drips dont smell like oil and is not shiny. The...
  8. Air leaking, bad TPMS?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Annoying... just had the tires replaced on the car and now one of the valves is leaking. The shop that replaced tires claims that it is a bad sensor and want to replace that sensor... I know they tried to replace sensor stem seals but gave up when they couldn't take them apart... might be that...
  9. Leaking T.P.S. Monitors?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have noticed the the T.P.S. dash light was coming on every so often. I have traced it to 1 wheel on our 2012 soul. (10k miles to date) After carefully checking the tire for punctures, (none found) I have deduced that the T.P.S. monitor is letting air get by it at very small increments. I loose...

My dealer contacted Kia Tech and was told this. I'm waiting for the new sunroof to arrive, and the dealer...
  12. anyone have a leaking sunroof?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    my brand new soul has a leaking sunroof. it leaks on the drivers side rear, and it is dripping onto my head when it rains. the issue is a seemingly too small seal, that just doesn't fill the gap between the sunroof and body. anyone else have this issue??? i've had to tape it closed, as we're in...
  13. Leaking Tire

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So just a few days after we welcomed Soul home, the tire pressure light was on (a luxery I had never had before!!!) so I filled it thinking since it was new it was just from being driven or something. I don't know I'm not good with that stuff, I just try out different excuses :) Anyway, long...
  14. Sunroof Leaking!!!

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    It has been raining here in Savannah for a week and raining hard. I noticed the other day that my sunroof is leaking :(. Its not a huge leak but still I know water can cause huge problems. I am pretty upset (just because I haven't owned it very long) but I am taking it to the dealer to see...
