Clutch
I've been experiencing loss of hydraulic fluid, and thought it might be the clutch slave cylinder. My car is 2015 CRDi. I removed the plastic under-tray and can see that the car has an internal concentric release bearing, but the leak appears to be from the coupling in the photo. I hope that this part is separate from the release bearing, as it would be a gearbox removal job to get to it. Has anyone else had this problem? I made a short video showing how loose it is. Is this normal?

Handbrake
I've just been investigating why the handbrake on my partner's car has suddenly gone slack. This is a common problem so this time I posted a video on YouTube to show how to diagnose it.

When I took the disc off the car, the lever wasn't sticking, but I found that the circlip that retains the pivot pin had popped off and the pin was halfway to falling out completely. I had a new lever so didn't attempt to refurbish the old one. Over 10 years and 219,000 miles, the slot in the pin that the circlip snaps into had almost disappeared. As mentioned in the video, if the hand...

Testimonials
Well it's been 12 years since I bought my i30 new and it's still going strong. The only thing I've improved recently is to replace the headlights with LEDs, polish the headlights with a 3M kit (see before and after pics) and replace the clogged windshield washer jets with some cheapies from eBay.

Best car I've ever had. Next one will be an EV (in 2032 at this rate).

Problems & Issues
Hi
I would really appreciate any help or advice on this...

My UK 2016 i30  makes a squeaking/squealing sound as the wheels rotate but only after driving for some time eg 1/2 hour,  and after coming down a very steep hill! It usually persists for some time after this.

I have had brakes and pads replaced but it was there before and after this work, although it is slightly higher-pitched now and appears more noticeable when reversing. I had taken the car in to the dealer but they couldn't find anything obvious and the sound wasn't there when they had the car.

 I have tried to video it and you can hear the sound -kind of chirping in forwards and more metallic in reverse (although slightly muffled by the am...

Clutch
Hi there,

First of all, my mother language is not english so i'm gonna do my best to explain the issue i've with my i30.

I've this car for 2.5 years now, it's a 2012 GD i30 1.6 CRDI with 185.000 kms.

Last week, i went to my garage cause my gears are hard to pass so i asked him to flush the gearbox oil. He says that won't do anything and for him my clutch is almost dead.
It doesn't slip, but i've to push the pedal all the way thru to switch gears.

I wanted to replace the clutch but apparantly on this car, there is a dual mass flywheel, so replace it too is more than recommended.
He asks me 500€ for clutch replacement and 1400€ if i change the clutch + flywheel,

What do you thi...

Reversing Camera
Hi all first post on just after some information
Can you fit a OEM reverse camera from a 2017 model to 2013 hatch??
Going to upgrade head unit in the wife’s car but don’t really want to use an aftermarket camera if I can get an OEM to work but I’m only finding 2017+ cameras online
Love the idea of the hidden camera when not in use

Windscreen Washer
Morning all.
Total noob here, I use my car to get to work and back and haul things from A to B so please bear with any wrong terminology or assumptions in my post!  It's a UK RHD i30, 2012-Present "GD" flavour.

So the problem is that the windscreen washer on the passenger side doesn't seem to have any pressure behind it, it just dribbles out.  I've made a little video:



I've poked around with pins and given the nozzle itself a good wipe.  There's no water on the ground under/near the car so I don't think there's a leak anywhere, maybe just a blockage?

The driver side works perfectly fine - for the video I shoved a cloth over it...

Possessed
If it's a short drive, there won't be any dripping but if I drive for more than 30 mins I will hear a constant dripping sound when I turn off the car. It drips for a couple minutes and stops. Is this common?

My car also seems to feel like it shudders more when on idle than it used to when I got it fresh. It sometimes shudders when I slow to a crawl and accelerate (not a complete stop). I've brought my car in for the respective car checks annually and mentioned all of this but always got back a negatory on detecting any issues. I'm due to bring it in for this year's inspection and will definitely bring it up again but would like to hear anyone else having to deal with these issues and if the dealership has been able to fix them.

Radiator
Lol a supposedly simple something I never thought I would have to ask for help on... its not like its my first rodeo  :head_butt:

I have tried to remove the radiator cap a few times but cant seem to get it off. I can turn it counterclockwise to the first stop, but cant seem to get it any further. I have tried to push down but feel like if I push any harder I might risk damaging or breaking the neck or top of the radiator.

Am I missing something? Is there some special technique? Or do I just need to grow a pair and push on it harder than I have on any other car I've owned?

Bulbs
Can I replace my GD tail lights (bulb type) with LED type from an SR?

Are they a direct “plug and play” replacement?
