  1. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    A while back I bought the OEM short shifter for gen1. Yesterday I finally decided to try to get it working, after a few modifications specifically the reverse lock mechanism I got it. I think it came out great, you can definitely tell a difference when driving. One picture is on first gear and...

    Hi All, I got a Kia brand short shifter for my 2010 Sport, but the packaging didn't come with instructions. I'm pretty handy, but if anyone has the instruction manual handy and could take pics of the pages I sure would be appreciative! Thanks! John

    SO was was looking through here to see if anyone had done this MOD before and couldn't find it for my year let alone anyone who has done it, so here's how I swapped out my stock shifter knob. First there are two screws in the front of the stock knob kind of under neath. Once you take those out...

    Hello, I have a 5-Speed 2011 Base Soul. I am looking to put an aftermarket Shift Knob on but I do not know the Thread Pitch and not many aftermarket parts specify that it will fit a Soul due to lack if popularity. I want to know if anyone could tell me what the Thread Pitch is so I can purchase...

    On my 2010 Soul automatic the light at the shifter that indicates what gear you are in is burned out. I was wondering how to remove the console to change the bulb and what kind of bulb is used. Ant help would be greatly appreciated.
  7. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So when attempting to back out of my driveway this morning, the manual shifter in my 2010 kia soul was stuck. I cannot move it at all from the position it is in, which is all of the way left. The clutch feels fine, but the shifter will not budge and the car is not able to move when given gas. If...

  9. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    ting crazy in 2014 For over a year now I've had an issue in my soul when it's really cold and wet out. When I try to shift my shifter sticks in park and the doors lock and unlock every time I push the shifter button. My Kia dealer says unless they actually see it happening they can't diagnose...

    Don't know if anybody else has experiences this or not. Just happened the 1st time in 20,000 miles on my 2015 KIA SOUL. I was gonna move my soul out of the driveway and put it under the carport out of the sun. Got in and cranked it up and put my foot on the brake pedal. And tried to put it in...

    Has anyone found different shifter knob to use in our 6 speed souls? I've looked on eBay but none were right, usually had reverse down to the right. Also not sure with the spring if they would fit.
  12. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hey fellas. My 2010 soul + is new to me and has been a great vehicle thus far. My biggest complaint is the transmission. It obviously lacks 6th gear which has been addressed (which I can do nothing about) and the darn shifter is LIFELESS. It is the most non-involving procedure ever. Has anyone...
  13. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    So the shifting in the car was getting difficult at times and I decided it was time to get new bushings and go ahead for the short shifter. Got the bushings on and moved to shifter. Tore it all apart, started to put it back together when I realized it didn't seem the same (how that went over my...

    Does anyone know what's up with the + and - indicators on the automatic shift knob? I tried hunting through the owners manual, but didn't see anything. :think
  15. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I've never had a car with the +/- shifter before. I've also never driven a manual personally as well, but I did grow up riding with my aunt who always drove manual so I have a vague idea on how it works. Please correct me if I'm wrong. You have the gas/brake/clutch pedals in a manual. To...

    Anybody know if the short shifter and aftermarket bushings I found will fit my 2013 Soul?? It's the Kia short shifter and the bushings through another company. They all say 2010/2011/2012 but I didn't know if the transmission and linkage is different from the 2013 model??? Any help would be great!
  17. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    If you have a manual transmission you NEED to do this mod. It's easy and very nice to use...night and day! It should have come from the factory like this....I would think plastic (delrin) would be cheaper than the rubber parts...just sayin'. Peace
  18. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    At my urging my wife has a rental Soul for a few days. Her big complaint is "If they were going to make it a stick they should have just put a clutch in it. I have to shift it all the time anyway." It sounds like she somehow puts it into the manumatic mode. I never paid attention to that when...

    If you're a 6 speeder and you're wondering why Kia or any aftermarket groups didn't release a short throw shifter for the 6 speed, the answer is probably because it's a pain in the *** to install. Kia designed this thing to be assembled with ease, unfortunately it makes removing certain parts...
  20. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I love my manual transmission, however I don't like the Peterbilt-long shift throw that is has. All the research that I've done has lead me to products for the 2010-11 5 speed and none for the 6. Some of the 2011/2012 comparison threads that I've read have indicated that the 5 speed and 6 speed...
