  2. 2104 Soul Base Rear Caliper Issuers

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Bought new in 2014. Pretty much trouble free, until.... I recently replace pads and rotors on all 4 wheels and I completely wore down my right rear pads in 3 weeks. I thought it might be a bad caliper so I replaced the right rear caliper last night and put new rear pads on both sides. Went for a...

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have a 2015 Exclaim with about 27K mile. I purchased it used a few months back and so far my wife loves it. We've noticed the rear suspension is very soft, in a bad way. So much so that it feels like the rear is bottoming out when we pull out of our driveway with our three young kids in the...
  4. Rear storage tray

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Hi all. Can anyone tell me if the 2020 Souls have the styrofoam storage tray that is under the rear floor “lid”? My 2012 Exclaim had one in it. I’m at my local dealer now and the salesman is saying that the 2020’s don’t come with a tray.
  5. Rear Backup Camera Delay On Infotainment Screen...

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I keep on forgetting to make a thread about this. It seems to happen every so often when the car is turned on, I get inconsistent startup times for the rear backup camera/infotainment response time. When the car is turned on, that warning screen always appears on the infotainment screen and you...

  8. Anyone replaced a whole rear door before? Any tips?

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    When I bought my 2012 Soul +, it came with a strange large (and ugly) dent on the drivers side passenger door. Since then, there have been 2 times hit-and-run varmints that have targeted that exact same door and created 2 smaller dents and scratches. So after 2 1/2 years of casually looking for...

    Got a remote starter installed when I got my soul. I start the car with the remote start, then I push the button again to unlock, the rear hatch will not open unless I open a random door first.

  12. Rear Bumper Cover Swap?

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    I have a 2016, but much prefer the look of the rear bumper cover on the 2017-2018s: the two-tone black is longer and makes the car look wider/better from rear view. Is it possible to swap entire rear bumper cover - the lower piece itself definitely looks different, with different bolt pattern...

    I have 2 sets (i.e. 2 pairs) of EBC USR7525 slotted rear brake rotors for sale. I'm not 100% sure of which years they are compatible, but they were purchased for 2012 Soul + (plus), which has the internal drum parking brake inside these disc rotors. I had ordered a set of these, but when I...

    New Member Introductions
    Hi! I've had my 2013 Kia Soul since December 2012. I've been very happy with it. I found this forum because I'm looking to turn the back end into a car camper for use during road trips, when I'd rather climb in the back and get a few hours of sleep rather than paying upwards of $70 for a...

  16. 2010 Rear Wheel Hub Bolts

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Was installing new wheel hub assemblies today, and when I went to torque the bolt to spec, it snapped. Was fortunately able to remove the threads easily from the new hub, but now I'm thinking that maybe I should get new bolts for both sides. Where can I find the specs to source these outside of...

    The rear wiper needs a new blade on the used 2016 I just got, and while I was looking at it I was laughing in a "what's the point" kinda way - what a dinky little wiper!! I'm wondering if anyone has successfully added a longer wiper in the back? And if so, which one did you get? I'd like to...
