We purchased a used i30 (2017 model) in April 2018 direct for a major dealer. The car was one year old with 8k miles. Since we have added 17k in 1 1/2 years so average miles. It appears we have a judder when moving away in first gear and have been advised this may be a clutch issue. The problem is the car was sold with full health check and so we are very upset that after 17k miles we have developed a problem. We are careful drivers combining short and long trips and having only recently changed front tyres at 24k. Our local Hyundai advised us not to spend money (75) on the investigation fee and go straight to the problem which means removing the gearbox at great expense.

My questions to owners are:

Does anyone have any info on the indicator mechanism on the steering column?

The indicators have stopped self cancelling since the dashboard has been out on my 2009 FD, I wonder if something got knocked during the work.

Do indicator stalks still have a mechanical method of cancelling or is there some new method?

Strangely, I am also getting some rather baffling oversteer on corners, like the EPS is too sensitive, I wonder if that is related !

Any insights would be gladly appreciated !

Problems & Issues
Hi peeps, my first post and I thought Id share my experience with ya'll.

So, I had a problem with the heater blowing cold and then the windscreen started misting up on a trip back from Wales, got a good whiff of coolant in the cabin also.

Google told me that the heater matrix was probably blocked and leaking, so I took it to the dealer and nearly feinted when they quoted near 1000 for replacement.

Now my i30 is 10 years old and done over 120,000 miles so 1000 is probably near as much as its worth.

So I decided to try and replace it myself - bad mistake !

I managed to get a copy of the workshop manual, which turned out to be pretty useless, bought an aftermarket  heater matrix for 70....

Brake Pads
My 2015 UK spec diesel hatchback has now done about 54000 miles, and I can see the rear pads are getting pretty thin. Does anyone know the part numbers for the genuine Hyundai discs and pads? The discs are 262mm diameter, and my car has 15" wheels. I understand that around 2015 Hyundai started fitting bigger 284mm discs with 16" wheels, and stopped offering 15" wheels because they were too small to fit around the larger brakes.  There are also options for cars with or without 'electronic handbrake'. My car has the hill start assist, which only works on really steep slopes, is that what they mean as 'electronic handbrake, or is that something different?

I'd like to get genuine Hyundai parts as the car is still in warranty

My FD has a rattle in the driver side dashboard that drives me crazy. Sounds like a loose bolt rolling on a plastic surface. It comes and goes randomly when the car is warm or slightly turning right. Been tracing it down for a while but still no luck. Anyone has any idea about this matter, please?

i30 1.6 CRDI premium
Wiper functions fine and parks OK in fast, slow and single wipe.
Interval mode doesn't function at all and washer works OK but no wiper function with it.
Thinking relay but don't have spare to check.

Could it be BCM ? think unlikely as all other functions on car work OK.

Maybe the washer working but with no wipe might be a giveaway for someone with more knowledge of the system.

Any help gratefully appreciated

Spark Plug
MY GD is a 2013 with 121 000 kms I need to change my spark plugs (as well as coolant flush and brake fluid inspection and a bunch of other things)

but the plugs are honestly really expensive. The OEM replacement are about 32$ each retail as my dad's got a garage I can get them for 26$

I know the oem plugs are iridium X , could i replace them with platinum ones (7$ each so 28$ for all 4) without issues ?

I dont mind less mileage out of them the car will get used a lot less shortly!

Oil Leak
Hi All,

I got a new 2019 i30 PD Active auto a few months ago, and recently, when I was looking under the car at the rear where i think the fuel tank is, I saw some kind of spray on stuff on the tank.  Not sure what this is?  Initially, I thought it was road mud/dirt, but closer look it actually stuck on the surface. 
Does anyone knows what this is ? and what purpose does it serves?

With less than 46,000 miles my i30 needed a new clutch. I put this down to the car being a hire car for first 10,000 miles of its life.

During the process of removing the clutch it became apparent there was an other issue. There was engine oil all over the place. Crankshaft oil seal needed replacing.

After new seal and clutch fitted every thing was sweet.......for about 150 miles. Then the clutch began to slip and judder. In 3rd gear, when driving, slight pressure on clutch pedal causes judder. Only reducing speed stops the judder. Also in 2nd giving it some gas the clutch slips for about 10-20 seconds (revs rise, foot off gas, revs fall and the slipping can be felt to stop as friction plate gets grip).

So I've had the n-line some weeks now. I've lost track.  for those who don't know I used to have a FD 1.6 CRDi and now I have an n-line 1.4 GDI.

This thread is just random observations, some comparisons, and perhaps something about rubber. These things are probably all in other people's threads.

The 1.4 GDI is a quite a schizophrenic engine. It has some low down torque, just enough to stop me missing the CRDi. Its perfectly possible to change gear early and drive on the torque. Then there is the middle rev-range, really a place not to find yourself if you are wanting to move. But then at 4.5K+ on the rev counter the engine is most definitely feeling like a petrol and ready to push you a long quite quickly.And of course...
