    OK, so maybe I'm an old geezer about this. Nonetheless, it irks the hell out of me to have to throw away perfectly good metal blades because the rubber is split. In the not-so-long-ago days, you kept your metal part and refilled the rubber. It cost a buck or two. Not 20 bucks to replace...

    The rear wiper needs a new blade on the used 2016 I just got, and while I was looking at it I was laughing in a "what's the point" kinda way - what a dinky little wiper!! I'm wondering if anyone has successfully added a longer wiper in the back? And if so, which one did you get? I'd like to...

    Gotta love it when new ideas and innovations come to an otherwise tried-and-true product. The Kimblade Wiper Blade is trying to bring an end to crappy, streaking, chattering wipers once and for all, and from what we can see they just might be onto something...

    Looks better now? By the way, has anyone tried dealing with that plastic pannel on the hood front? It's kinda only thing that me doesn't like abouth the exterror. I thinks to change it to some kind of a lattice to make it look more like GT, or something similar. Thoughts? PS One of my friends...

    I bought a rear wiper (Duralast 11A) for my 2012 + and the fit was loose when I installed it. I've seen posts that say Trico Exact fit 11-A is same as OEM. Can anyone give some guidance on this?
  11. 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...

    I drilled two holes in the center of the pre-located hatch doorjam and used the double sided stick tape as well. After the install my rear windshield wiper hit the spoiler so I had to get a 11" wiper. Did this happen to anyone else?

    My subject says it all. I have posted earlier today about my 16 year old daughters 2015 Kia Soul + new to our daughter. It is raining non stop here in the Northwest and I would like to put on new wiper blades. ( Front and rear). Is there any blades that are considered the best of the bunch...

    My wife was driving the car and experienced smoke in the cabin originating from the rear hatch. The rear wiper was on without the switch being on. I was out of town so I had my son remove a number of fuses. When I got home I removed the rear hatch interior cover....the wiring harness was a total...

    Hi Folks; Just bought a 2015 SX last night - driving home in the rain was AWFUL. I couldn't see very well with oncoming traffic headlights. It appeared there was a film on the windshield that was almost impossible to see out of? Can anyone offer ideas? Thanks jo

    Snow, ice, freezing rain, and frigid temperatures make winter driving treacherous; nevertheless you're prepared, right? But what about your wiper blades? If they're the same ones that baked on your windshield all summer then you could be in for problems. How do you know if your wiper blades...

    Soooo... I have an incredibly stupid question and one I'm kind of embarassed to ask. My wife has a 2011 (or 2012) Kia Soul. I have new Rain-x Latitude wiper blade to replace her factory ones, but I cannot get the factory ones off no matter what. It appears to be different from my '13 Kia...
  18. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    If so, can you tell me? I need to take the entire arm off, not just the blade. I want to leave the motor in place. I see the little dust cover pops off and on but beneath that looks like a nut holds the arm on? If the nut has to come off how do I hold the motor shaft to keep it from turning? TIA.

    After measuring and looking around, it seems the 11A or 11 in wiper is what fits best on the Soul. Unfortunately, no shops near me has one. I picked up a 12 in. one from Walmart and installed it today. It fits fine, doesn't hit anything, but the base (the portion of the blade closest to the...

    Quality wiper blades should evenly and effectively squeegee water out of their path in both directions no matter what speed you're going. Soft rubber compounds necessary for wiper performance are always under attack by road grit, the sun, acid rain, tree sap, ice, and especially winter salt. Of...
