A while ago I purchased a PDF of the workshop manual, ok, looks like someone just output everything from KGIS for the 2014 / 2015 Forte, but seeing as we have to pay to get access to KGIS these days, I thought it was worth it.
Anyway, I'm wondering wether it would be frowned upon if I were to upload the manual to here? I'm asking before doing it for a couple of reasons, the first being wether it's legal to do so, and the other is that it's quite large, 131MB, which the attachment system won't handle (well, not as the forum is configured).

I've also uploaded a zip file to the folder. It's a little naughty, as it's a site rip of "kifomanual.com", which seems to be an html version of the PDF. I think KGIS might have been all HTML, as I cannot get in, I cannot say for sure, so perhaps it's just a rip of that. It does mention 1st Gen, but there is very little info there for 1st gen, and mainly seems to be for 2nd Gen :)
Download, unzip, and open the "index.html" fie in a browser, and away you go. I've also removed all (I hope) of the google ads and some counter code from the html too.

They do have a site for the Kia Soul with all the repair manuals posted from KGIS. Or you can start a Google Drive account and make a folder for the manual and share the link. Then everyone could still have access to copy and print what they need or copy the whole manual to their own pc without having to worry about large uploads to the site. Just a thought

Ok I see the headlamp portion in Dropbox, can you do the whole manual there?

Downloading now, it does give a error but that is due to the size of the file (to big to open in drive) then when you download it warns about virus possibilities but still allows it to work thank you.

Thanks for letting me know it works. More than happy to share this around as it could help others. Certainly helped me, if only with the listing of what type and wattage of bulbs the new cars use, plus other related info.

The only PDF files are for an ipod adapter and a spare tire. Would you be so kind as to post the tech manual back up?

Try it now, see if you can access it. I was messing around with the sharable links, think I unshared the manual by mistake.
