The government have issued an update to MOT testers. (Annual car inspections for vehicles 3 or more years old)

As of 1 January 2021, section 4.1.4 of the MOT Inspection manual reads: “Existing halogen headlamp units should not be converted to be used with high intensity discharge (HID) or light emitting diode (LED) bulbs. If such a conversion has been done, you must fail the headlamp.” '

Before this, as long as the headlights worked and were aimed properly plus they had the correct beam pattern, a car would pass its MOT for that section.
Which meant that you could go on to the internet, find a seller overjoyed to take your cash while promising an ‘LED upgrade’ to your existing bulbs and voila!
Super-bright bu...

I saw one of these on the road for the first time last week.
A very impressive unit which even my wife liked.

Hi all.

I have an i30 diesel auto. after discovering a bit of a noise. I inspected the drive belt and found it to be slightly loose and flapping about when idling. When I apply revs the noise stops and the belt runs through the pulleys smoothly. 

I’ve replaced the belt but there is still the same issue. I think it’s an issue with the tensioner pulley so I’ve deceived to remove inspect and replace if required. The issue is, I can’t get the tensioner pulley off. Removed the bottom left bolt no problem.  the top right bolt will be come out at there is another pulley in the way.

Can anyone help?

Suspension Springs
Hi All, I ordered a standard wagon/estate i30 with 1.5 T-GDI MHEV engine and i-MT manual transmission. This engine has relatively high power, 160 hp, and this is the same engine that comes with the 2020-2021 top N-line models. Mine is not an N-line. But I tried one with the same engine and I can tell that the power steering and the suspension are slightly better on the N-line compared to the standard trim level. According to the official communications the N-line only gets different setting, not different components. My question is, would it be possible somehow to modify the power steering and suspension settings on a standard car to make it similar to the N-line? I asked my Hyundai retailer, they said that a suspension modification would c...

Hi, I have a oil level light on my i30 Diesel 1.6 2010, had an oil change, new oil filter, also a new oil level sensor, no oil leak and oil is at the correct level...

Any ideas on what could be the issue or the fix? Any advice would be appreciated 😌

Thanks in advance

Suspension Springs
While out today I heard a cracking noise from the front nearside front wheel.

Going over speed bumps when it happened it was really odd feeling as the car didn't "bounce" and the steering feels slightly unresponsive turning left.

Back home checking I find the spring has broken at the 2nd loop and looking at the wheel arch you can see the gap to the tyre is marginal compared to the other side.

Got it booked into a local garage next week but was wondering how big a job it is replacing the spring?

Problems & Issues
I hope I have posted this in the correct place.
Be kind please... first post!

I have a very basic 1.4 petrol 2012 model just hit 70 thousand miles.
Well looked after. Serviced in house. Oil and filter changed about 500 miles ago. It was a mann filter used.

 (Last car was a nissan k11 1.3 super s.. owned for 12 years and practically rebuilt body over that time until I could not spend another £ on steel!)

Jesse is nothing spectacular but has been reliable until this morning..

Im 5 weeks away from my due date on a mission to the recycling centre.
Chilly morning, jesse was a bit hesitant in the background but this is something jesse has ALWAYS had until she warms up.

Glow Plug
Hello everyone, I'm new to the club and I'm happy that i could join. :D
The things is , I already have a question for you, fellow i30 owners. I own (as my description says) a 2014 i30, 1.6 crdi (diesel), 5door wagon, (the 110bhp engine model). As I'm not a mechanic or anything close to it I don't know if I have a problem with my car's glow plugs or they should be just like this. My car starts very hard in the winter (in Romania around -5 to -10 degrees Celsius), even if i wait more than 10 minutes with my ignition(key position) ON . Many people told me that I should wait 2 to 3 minutes or less for my glow plugs to do the magic and warm the engine chamber to a temperature that helps the car start normally, this being shown by the glow p...

Full story, short version.

Im driving down the highway, i blink left for lanechange, left side bulb blows (the one for normal driving light and high beam).
I buy a new bulb, change it and it works (not my first rodeo).
I then turn on high beam, but only the right side goes to high, while the left side beam stay on low.

Any takes on this?
I an hoping that theres seperate fuse for high/low and left/right, in which case it would be a simple and cheap fix,
but this is just wishful thinking on my part. The fact that right side go high and left side stay low seem to speak against this. atlest at face value.

Extra contekst: a week ago i had a good bump into another car. maybe such bumb could ha...
