Windscreen Washer
Washer fluid warning light came on and so I filled the reservoir (it was low) but the warning display will not switch off. Any ideas or fix? Thanks.

Glow Plug
hi guys and girls I have a 2008 i30 diesel
is it normal for the glow plug to take what seems like at least 10 sec to go out before I can start the car
I on occasion drive the work holden rodeo diesel and I can just turn key and start straight
could there be a glow plug problem or battery or both
your help would be appreciated

Hi guys

So I thought since my new-to-me i30 has clocked just past 10K km, I would give a little write-up on my findings, what I like and what I don't, and what I have learnt.

I purchased my i30 through Hypercar on the 6th of June after much uhm-ing and aah-ing and frivolously researching cars on the net, asking people for opinions and generally walking away with more questions than answers.

My ideal car that I had in my head was either a Mitsubishi Lancer GLS 2.0l, as they have crappy resale value in SA and they are rock solid cars so they can be found for very little outlay. However, the 2l MIVEC engine is quite thirsty and it lacked some of the mod cons of other vehicles. My other option was an older car,...

Hi All , having been quoted £240 from a Hyundai dealer to supply, fit and re-program a new TPMS sensor to my 2008 i30 I resorted to trawling the web and found RL Automotive they were quoting £51.45 delivered for a self programming sensor, I called them and they told me once fitted just drive for 15 minutes and it will self program to the ECU. I was a bit sceptical but ordered one, a local tyre shop fitted it and just charged £6 for the balancing. Drove home and within 5 minutes the dash warning light and display picture had gone ,magic !

Hello, this is my first post in here.

I've been reading a bit in here yesterday, but I couldn't find quite the same problem as I have. Even though I've found some problems I had too (headlights busting frequently, passenger side read door handle broke without any hard force put to it), I couldn't find anything about radio.

So, a couple of days ago I was driving during nighttime, and I hit a pothole at 90km/h. After 2-3 seconds sound stopped coming through the speakers. The radio works fine, CD, USB, FM/AM, no errors, it's just that there is no sound at all, no matter the volume. I'm not sure what could be the problem, and I'm kinda not sure what to look for exactly. Is it the connection between the speakrs and the radi...

Hello people!

car: 2010 hyundai i30 turbo diesel

issue: upon cold start up the exhaust blows out some smoke (white/light grey) - the amount of smoke is varied depending on how long the car has been not used. generally the longer the rest period -> the greater amount of smoke upon start up. it's not a 'huge' amount of smoke, but enough to warrant investigation.

possibilities: i've done some reading. apparently it may be due to a build up of unburned fuel. something about glow plugs not burning off the fuel fast enough?

other notes: 1. i've had the car inspected by a mechanic - no leaks, broken seals etc.
2. the car drives fine, clutch is perfect, turbo works great - verified by mechanic.

Hi folks,

I'm new to the forum and new to the Hyundai experience. I just recently purchased my 2013 i30 Style CRDi 1.6 and am currently getting to grips with what's under the hood. In the first pic you'll see 4 numbered items that I need help with in identifying. I think I know what these bits are but I want to be sure. Numbers 1-3 are for sure sensors but what sensors and 4, is it PCV valve or a breather tube?

What is this item bolted to the firewall?

Key Fob
Hi, I bought one of these the other day www.ebay.co.uk/itm/161350382019 when my key blade snapped off and lost the pin. It includes the spring.
Swapped the bits inside from existing fob and put them into the new shell. A word of warning - the original fob was VERY hard to break open, seemed to be superglued together! Theres a video here which makes it look easy.
