Hi everyone,

My 2011 i30 CW is coming up for its MOT in a few weeks. However, at some point in the past year or so, the plastic cover for one of the rear number plate (licence plate for future search purposes!) has come off, and taken the bulb off.

Does anyone happen to know a part number for this? I need to get it ordered and fitted in the next fortnight, and the local dealer quoted £150!!

Hi to all
It's look like I might have problem with steering column. 4 months ago I noticed a warring light on my dashboard it was from ESC so decided to go to garage to check what cussed it. It was steering angle sensor problem so went to Hyundai dealer to make steering angle sensor recalibration. They did it but told if that will happen again the whole steering column needs to be replaced (£1500!!!!!!). I was quite shocked cos if they could fix it for the first time why they cannot do it again. I wasn't provided with any detail about what happend exactly. I did my own research and I found that a lot people had some clunky noises comes from steering column. Problem was related to plastic rubber bushing/coupler that was wear off so simp...

I thought as the i30 fleet out there starts to age, and we get more enquiries about low clutch pickup, or gear selection issues I've created a sticky thread.

Here's some research I've done noting these valves have no markings whatsoever but their job to to soften the clutch rengagement and protect the driveline from excessive shock.

Hi all I'm in the UK and I'm just about to change the engine oil in my 2013 1.6 petrol engine i30. In my manual it says to use an ACEA A5 oil. BUT. Under the bonnet There is an official Hyundai /shell sticker that says" important use only ACEA C3 Low Ash oil". I phoned Hyundai and they initially said to me to go with what the manual says and use a shell ACEA A5 oil. I phoned a few other dealers and some didn't even know what an ACEA  grade is.  One dealer said that their bulk oil is C3 and that is what they would use. Still confused i iPhoned Hyundai back they were very helpful and went into a more technical sheet that showed a shell Helix oil e c t which is in fact a C3. If I put my registration number in the Shell oil finder an A5 oil is ...

Roof Rack
Hi there,

First post here so hi!

I had a bit of an (ahem) accident involving my bike on the roof of my 2013 i30 hatchback and a rather low entrance to a car park just recently. Big shout to the Thule roof bars that, whilst totally bent and written off, buckled and popped off the roof quite nicely considering, leaving just a couple of small cosmetic scratches in the roof and slightly bent brake levers on the bike.

Or so I thought. Turns out the front right fixing point has got bent out of shape and the threads stripped a bit as the roof bar got pulled out so it's now oval with very little thread left. Has anyone ever replaced a fixing point? Any pointers as to how to do it? I'm guessing from what I can see i...

Actually, all the oil websites recommend the pink g12 coolant and nowhere the blue one. The dealer says blue.

But is that also the one which I need? Or yellow?

I have a 2008 i30cw. (Not sureif 66 or 85kw)...

Last night, I felt my clutch slip pretty bad, so... In the words of Rafiki, "It is time."

I've boiled my choices down to Sachs and Valeo. (Weigh in your choice/onion if you'd like)

Online, the Sachs is 240mm while the Valeo is 215. Both say they are for my car. Can somebody enlighten me here? Will either work? If so, Sachs is the obvious choice. (Planned upgrades include intake (done), exhaust and remap/chip (torn).

Thanks, and ... GO!

Oil Leak
Has anyone else experienced patches on the driveway from under the front left of the Hyundai I30? This has made 3 dark patches on my driveway and I cannot work out what it can be? I have placed several bit of cardboard/paper etc under and when checked appears to be just clear liquid??

However my concern is that these pathces dont clear up throughout the day amd have stained the driveway?? Leading me to believe this isent just water draining from the A/C?
