  1. Chirp and hum from wheels - 2011 Kia Soul+

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    118k on the clock. I am getting an intermittent chirping from the passenger side wheel and a droning hum from the drivers side wheel. Both sound like they're in the front, but I'm not 100% sure. It only occurs intermittently on the highway after driving for a while (45+ min), and will come and...
  2. Any warranty for KIA Soul rotors in Canada?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hi, I have Kia Soul 2016, less then 3 years of ownership from purchase, less then 40K km driven. I looked at my KIA warranty conditions, was not able to find something specific to rotors (disk brakes). Are these parts covered by 3 year warranty or they are treated the same way as brake pads...
  3. EBC USR7525 rear brake rotors

    For sale / Trade / Wanted
    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...
  4. 2015 Soul Brake Replacement - New Rotors?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hi guys! My local Kia dealership is telling me that I'm nearly due for the break replacement on my 2015 Soul. They're saying that the rotors will be done as well. They're not saying my rotors are warped or damaged, etc. Just that they'll be done as part of the break job. I used to do my fair...
  5. Tip when changing rotors

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I'm pretty sure this is the same for all gen1 souls. You have to take out two phillips head screws to get each rotor off the car. Make sure you pound the hell out of them first to break up the rust or you will strip them. Can't really spray any lube because they are in there really tight. I...
  6. CBrake rotors and pads are installed.

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Drilled and slotted with ceramic pads. The rotors are silver-zinc coated to prevent rust.
  7. Brake Pads and Rotors

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Any Kia Soul Pros around who can answer some fit questions for me?? I need to replace all my brake pads and rotors on my 2011 Kia Soul+ 2.0 I'm considering the R1 Concepts CEOE 10751 Eline Series Kit(Pads+Rotors-Rear&Front) mainly because i hope they all fit perfect - but there are no reviews...
  8. Thinking of replacing rotors, are slotted/drilled worth it?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    So I have to replace a broken lug stud on the front wheel, which involved taking the rotor off which im sure will be fun after 5 NY winters. I was thinking that I might as well replace the rotors while doing this. The cars 5 years old with about 55K miles. Replaced the pads 2 years ago with...
  9. New front pads and rotors - lots of grinding noise

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I installed new front pads and rotors on my wife's 2012 soul. I used the top of the line pads and rotors from Autozone. When I finished and started to back out of the driveway all I hear is grinding. When my wife moved the car in the driveway while I was outside I can't hear anything. Is...
  10. Stop me if you can ...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hi everyone. I signed up on the forum to seek out some wise advice. Who better to ask that a bunch of Soul owners. My 2011 Soul Exclaim has been perfect. Just turned 60 K and did a timing belt and 60 K service. Even though I am my own mechanic, I have let the dealership handle the work so far to...
  11. Brake, upgrade slotted rotors

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I just installed a set of EBC slotted rotors and green stuff parts. That feel great over stock. They only glitch that I had was this. I did not know that there was a difference in size between the rear rotors on a 1.6 and a 2.0. There are many websites that list them as the same size. The...
  12. 2014 Soul front brake pads and rotors need replacement at 10500 miles

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I bought a 2014 Soul from the Kia dealer as used with 3500 miles on it in Aug 2014. I recently made a cross country trip from Orlando, FL to Bakersfield, CA. Everything went fine. However, 2 days later I started hearing a weird grinding noise whenever I used the brakes. The local dealer told me...
  13. optima rotors on soul?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Ok we all know the optima has larger rotors and calipers than the soul. I would simply like to know if the caliper bracket mounting holes are in the same position on both of these. It would be a sweet way to upgrade the front brakes! Even if you could just use the optimas bracketa and the souls...
  14. Drilled Slotted Rotors installed

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Just got these put on and bedded in, fairly straight forward and easy install. 4 bolts in total holding the caliper on (well 2 for the caliper and 2 for the support bracket. The only real problem i ran into was the 2x stupid retaining screws on the face of the rotors. These screws are made...
  15. Drilled Rotors

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Anyone know of compatible drilled rotors for the Soul? Shark Racing sells a big brake kit that includes 12" 2005 Hyundai Tiburon rotors. Anyone have any info on the rear rotors? Also would the Tiburon rotors require different calipers or could just the rotors be changed out? Thanks.
  16. Rotors...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Anyone else's rotors look like crap? I'm at 1600 Mi and it looks like they already have small grooves in them. They still work fine, but it just seemed strange. Hoping I can just replace them with drilled and slotted and some decent pads soon enough.
