  1. Washer bottle/neck leaking

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Good morning and Happy Holidays, I havent been on here in quite some time. Our 2013 Soul has been a fantastic car. We havent had any real problems what so ever. Just now hit 30,000 miles. Upon filling the washer tank I noticed it leaks alot at the neck/tank joint. I'm guessing this is a slip in...

  3. Foam Cannon Users - what is your power washer?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I am building my Christmas/Birthday/TaxRefund/Lottery wish list and am wondering what our communities current Foam Cannon users use as their base power-washer, and why? Is it only a car wash unit, do you also do your driveway and windows, etc. yada-yada... Help me find my next "family" purchase...
  4. stock Windshield washer Fluid (love it)

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    This is an odd request, but does anyone know where to get the kind of windshield washer fluid that comes stock in a new Kia? It actually has a great, satisfying smell. (anyone notice this?) I'm assuming the dealer sells the stuff, but does anyone know if there is a particular brand of...
  5. 2017 rear window washer?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Can any of you new 2017 owners tell us whether the rear washer on a 2017 is still a "drool" or a proper fan pattern like on the windshield? I was going to ask to look at one at the dealers on my last service but forgot.
  6. windshield washer not working

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have no squirts from front or back windshield washer nozzles. I looked at my manual, but do not see a fuse for the windshield washer motor. I found a label for headlamp washer, but no fuse present. I doubt that was the proper one anyway. I've booked an appt for Monday to get it checked...
  7. How do I check/remove windshield washer fluid resevoir/pump?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi all, Been searching for my year (2012) and haven't found anything specific to my model. Windshield wiper sprayers aren't working and tested it midline (between pump and front/rear sprayers) and get nothing. I figure it's either a clogged pump or tank. But the only info I've found is...
  8. Removing crush washer from drain plug

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I am doing my first oil change on my 2016 Soul. I removed the drain plug and the crush washer is stuck to it, but good. It's like it's almost fused to the metal of the drain plug or something. Is there a trick to getting those things off that I don't know about? Do you have to heat it or...
  9. oil drain plug washer

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I'm looking for a definitive answer on this if someone is willing to help. I've searched the forums here but have only got 'looks like' 'seems to be' and 'think it is' answers on the actual part number for the crush washer specifically for the second gen Kia Souls (2.0l). I bought an oil...
  10. New owner. Weird wiper washer issue.

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I just bought a '14 base 6MT today with 30k miles. I tried the washers with bizarre results. When I pull on the stalk, front wipers wipe but it sprays on the rear window. Pushing the stalk does the opposite... rear wipes but front sprays. Any ideas before I go to the dealer? Of note, it was...
  11. Windshield Washer fluid bottle

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So I bought my 13 Soul in July. This is the first winter I've had her, and this was the first time our area has put salt on our roads. I was surprised to see that I ran out of fluid in just a few days! So I went to buy a new bottle ... and promptly poured half of it on the ground! I called the...
  12. Windshield Washer tank Leaking after repair?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Recently purchased 2010 Soul 2.0-78K miles-Washer tank leaked upon delivery-Dealer sent me to small local shop-Was told pump leaked, which was purportedly replaced-(At same time as front struts which still make "Clunk" noise on bumps-Another time on that..) Not sure they actually did...

  15. Rear Washer Nozzle

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Anybody replace they're rear washer nozzle. I have a 2014 +, and the rear nozzle sucks. I would rather it spray like the front nozzles. It just streams out, and it takes more than a few times to get enough to clean the window. I apologize in advance if this ended up in the wrong section. Thanks!
  16. Washer problem

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have an '11 Soul 2.0. The washers have stopped working. I can hear the motor going, and the reservoir is full. I saw on the Kia Tech Info site that there is a filter somewhere that should be cleaned, but it doesn't say where it is. Do any of you know?
  17. Back window washer works, but not the front one?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I've got a 2011 model & there's nothing wrong with the fuses. Plenty of washer fluid. Are there separate pumps for front & back? When I want to wash the back window (by pushing the arm away from me), I can hear the pump kick in in the engine compartment, but when I pull the arm towards me, I...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I can hear the pump working but I am getting no spray at all in the rear and the front just barley spits the fluid out. Any suggestions... trying to figure if its clogged or I am finally going to have to put repair money into a pump. Its a 2012 with under 23000 miles.... bought new.... :)

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
