  1. 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
  2. 2019 Soul Dash Rattle

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    My Soul Base has developed a rattle sound originating from within the dashboard. The rattle sound is located at the dashboard center area just below the top surface. It sounds like it is coming from behind the center ventilation outlets. I've searched the forum and some others have experienced...
  3. Metal Rattle upon Startup?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Ive noticed on my Wifes 2011 Kia Soul Sport when weve started it I hear a rattle coming from that bay. It sounds like it happens when the AC Compressor engages. Anyone heard of this? Im assuming its a pulley or a clutch or something rattling. AC still works fine and cold air blows just...

    Howdy, Had a 2010 Soul that we loved, bought a 2017 last fall. First 1000 miles very happy, after that not so much (7K so far). Have a dash rattle that the dealer did not fix. Sounds exactly like the the video SoulDash posted and also the youtube video from a 2017 soul turbo owner. Super...
  5. Distinct intermittent rattle with large center speaker

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hi - my + is 2 years old now and have been chasing rattles and buzzes since the beginning unfortunately. About 4 months ago, a distinct rattle has appeared and sounds like it's coming from the large central dashboard speaker. But IT decides when it wants to rattle! - which seems to be random...
  6. 2016 base rattle solved!!!

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I drive a 2016 base Soul and for the past few months I've been chasing a very slight rattle. This rattle sounded like it was coming from the corner of the windshield. When you sat on the driver's side it sounded like it came from the passenger side and vice versa. The rattle sounded almost like...
  7. Rattle from dash....Base MT

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Quiet as a mouse most times, but at speed on slightly rough road, I get a rattle which sounds like it comes from the upper dashboard perhaps within the vent. While driving, I think it is in the right speaker or door, wife thinks its in the middle....if I lean way over toward the center, suddenly...
  8. headliner rattle - (this is not a music artist event)

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Not too literate on forums, so I know I read of previous headliner issues (2013's or so), but this Soul is new since October 2016. With windows rolled up, three other doors closed, closing the driver door results each time in a rattling in the roof. Anybody had this in the 2016 Soul models? How...
  9. Rattle

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Our 2014 + soul (25,000 miles) has begun displaying a rattle occurring either within the steering column or the binnacle. Almost sounds like a small washer has come loose and buzzes away on anything but smooth roads. It's not coming from loose change or some other item in the glovebox or center...

  11. That first rattle

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    You buy a new car with no rattles or odd noises. Eventually one has to develop. Just got my first one coming from the passenger rear corner. Can't find it. Knew it had to happen.

  13. Does your passenger seat rattle?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I've been noticing that my front passenger seat rattles like a bucket of bolts - has anybody noticed theirs doing this? I've checked the floor bolts and they're fine.

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Bought my '14 Soul in April of 2014 and I now have about 12500 miles on her! Everything is great except the excessive RATTLING!!! Trunk rattles, passenger side door rattles and rear side airbag component in headliner rattles. Really disappointed and may trade it in...otherwise I still love the...
  15. 2013 rattle in dash

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    2013 41,000 miles has developed an intermittent low speed, loud rattle somewhere in the dash area. Smooth road or bumpy road. I emptied the glove box, checked all the screws I can find. Sounds like glove box area although wife says it sounds to her like from driver side. I'm going to talk to...

    Well if I can get any insight as to what I've been experiencing for these 2 issues for quite a while, it would be appreciated. Basically for almost 2 years, ( currently only 15k miles on the car) there is a metallic rattle that starts when accelerating from 18mph to 22mph. It stops and then...
  19. Annoying door rattle

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi, i just bought a 2010 soul 4U retro with very low kms (36000), and in immaculate shape. However, it has a rather annoying passenger door rattle when driving above 40km/h. I narrowed down the problem to be the panel just below the window as when i put a kleenex in the gap between the panel...
  20. Clunking rattle noise from Left rear of Soul +

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I had a noise from the beginning with my 2011 Soul+ and it seemed to get louder over time. Checking the usual suspect areas (hatch latch, spare tire, door latch etc.) I lived with the noise till I took the car in for the stop light recall issue. One of the techs at the dealer spent 2 hours...
