  1. 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...
  2. Front Wheel Bearings Replaced

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I just had both of my front wheel bearings replaced. The bill came to $493 at the local KIA dealership. I considered doing it myself, but it takes a press to remove and install the bearings. I took it in to have the bearings replaced due to an intermittent hum at around 40MPH at above 30F or...
