  1. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I started probing wires under the dash and I got lucky and found the reverse light wire in a plug on the far left side under the dash. It's a green wire in a plug containing many green wires. I will attach a photo for reference. It's the second wire from the left on top. I pulled it out a...

  4. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hey all, I just got a salvaged Soul that was stolen by a crack head (literally found a crack pipe in the trunk compartment when I was cleaning it out) and amongst all the trash there was some kind of blue sound mixer or controller that was ripped open, ... Maybe about the size of an average...

    I opened the engine compartment the other day to give someone a jump start and noticed a light dusting of dust over the engine components, mostly noticeable on any parts that were black (top of engine, battery and cover, heater hoses, fluid caps,etc) so of course I wiped down the entire engine...
  6. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    My 2016 Soul has these style wheels, 205 60R-16. The wheel is aluminum and the black is a robust plastic. Anyone know what is under the plastic? Is the metal polished or just rough like the backside.

    Hello, I'm getting ready to replace my stock head unit with a Pioneer double-din system. One thing I'm doing is, pulling out one of my 12v connectors and putting in a flush mount USB unit in it's place that connects directly to the new stereo. Has anyone pulled this panel out before? I'm...
  8. Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    Its Winter here in Maryland. I hate it when my Red Soul (New-bought in August 2017) gets dirty and white with all the salt and chemicals from the road. I try to wash it as often as I can (Usually if the temp is in the 40's Im ok)! I was looking on the Internet and found this neat attachment for...

    Just installed a roof basket on the stock anchor points. Super clean with no crossbars. Makes it look like it's custom built for the Soul.
  10. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hi all, looking to turn my 2016 Base Soul M/T into a mini camper for one. I love camping, and when I go with the family, will use a roof rack and basket to haul gear and sleep in a tent with the rest of the family. However, I also go often by myself, and then I like to sleep in the car. My...

    Just noticed the string of lights under headlights is out on one side. What are they called? Guess I will check connection first. Then what?

    I did see on here at one time a under hood insulation for a 2011 KIA Soul. I have spent a few hours trying to find that thread to no luck. Could someone share the link please. Thank You
  13. How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    Hello! Can someone tell me how to remove the plastic cover under the steering wheel for a 2014 Soul? I know there are two screws on the bottom and a little slit on the door side, but I am not sure how to get it off and would like to leave as little damage as possible :) Thanks!

  15. How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    2014 SOUL is described here. I was curious about removing the splash guard to do my first oil change. I rolled the front tires up onto two 2 x 4's to give me an extra inch down there. At first, I removed the little trap door for the filter and for the oil draining. Without standing under the...

    A new car carrier pulled up to a dealer and I took some photos. Fresh off the boat. Looking forward, under SOUL. Clean with no dirt. See the undercoating? Gas tank is well shielded. I am close to a deal on a SOUL + with ECO Package.

    So I started hearing this rattle yesterday on a smooth road when taking off. Its only hearable 5mph and under but if I hold it steady around 3-4mph the rattle stays but as soon as I speed up it will go away. Any ideas? Sent from Free App

  19. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I am not sure what the part is identified as, but I am addressing the black plastic cover plate that goes just beneath the windshield wipers outside of the windshield and just above the rear edge of the hood. I started to use my wife's Kia Soul yesterday and noticed that there is a large chunk...
