The Kia Soul is a subcompact SUV that has been in production since 2008. It’s currently in its third generation and continues to offer great utility and style. Kia has updated quite a lot in the new 2020 Kia Soul. It features LED lighting which is an upgrade from the halogen lighting used in previous models.

Bulb type used

For the 2019 model year, the Kia Soul uses the H13 bulb for its high beam and low beam headlights. Its fog lights come with either the H11 LED, H16 LED or H8 LED bulb. Other lighting components that use LED lighting include daytime running lights, parking lights, brake lights, side marker lights and the inner tail light bulb.

Upgrading from factory bulbs to the aftermarket LED/HID

LED and HID headlights are built to produce more light when compared to halogen lights. When upgrading, be sure to check the measurements and bulb sizes so that you get the correct fitment. You can consult or hire an expert during the installation process to ensure that your new headlights interact well with the headlight assembly.

Advantages of upgrading from halogen to LED/HID

  1. Longer headlight lifespan.
  2. HIDs and LEDs provide a larger light spectrum improving visibility on the road.
  3. They are easy to install.
  4. Energy-efficient as they use up to 30% less energy.
  5. They have better aesthetic features.

How to choose the correct bulb size of the LED/HID lamp

1. Look at your original bulbs

Your original bulbs have their part/size number indicated in the manual. Or take a look at your old bulb before buying new ones.

2. Check your user manual

Your vehicle’s manual contains a lot of information that will help you determine the correct bulb size for your LED/HID lamps. Depending on the type of car you drive, this information could be located anywhere under the Vehicle Maintenance section. Look for a subsection that talks about bulb replacement.

3. Contact your car manufacturer

Alternatively, you can reach out to your vehicle dealer or manufacturer to enquire about your vehicle’s bulb size. By providing your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), the dealer or manufacturer should be able to fetch all the details you need.

4. Online catalogs

Carrying out an online search can help you identify the bulb size that fits your car. There are several catalogs that host bulb size charts for almost all cars. All you need to do is key in your car’s details such as its type, year of manufacture, and model.

Installing new bulbs

  1. Access the headlight through the vehicle’s engine compartment.
  2. Open the protective cap to reveal the bulb.
  3. Remove the old bulb and replace it with the new one.
  4. Reinstall the bulb as you return the cap in place.
  5. Test your headlights to see if the new bulb works.

Additional equipment

  1. Screwdriver
  2. A cloth damped with some alcohol for cleaning the new bulb.
