Hello, I am Randall. Kia is one of the worst for supplying repair information even to our factory information I use. They have not released repair information post 2016 to date. Hard to explain.I do however have rear seat removal information for the 2016 Soul, not Ev but,, I think procedures still same or near the same.Would you like me to send you the 2016 Soul seat repair/removal information that includes the backrest? hard for me to try and explain each step so thinking this file should help you. Let me know, Thanks
