Hello from a new member.  I bought a 2013 GD CRD wagon a few weeks ago with the low clutch issue.  It has 170K Km on it.  Before I bought it I got on the web and read the posts.  Easily fixed by removing the damper, I thought.  I  used this plug:
:link: VSTI16x1.5EDCF | Parker, Steel Hydraulic Blanking Plug, Max Operating Pressure 400 bar, Thread Size M16 x 1.5 | RS Components
Which fitted perfectly.  problem is it made very little difference.
Sticking my head up under the pedals I saw the plastic master cylinder pushrod, and noticed that the clevis eye had worn significantly.  There was an inch of movement at the pedal before the pushrod star...

Hi all, I purchased my i30 2015 1.4 manual a couple of months ago and I decided to service it with the local Hyundai dealer. So I booked interim service and I asked for full replacement of the manual transmission oil.
After they completed the work I noticed they used automatic transmission oil instead and they don't mention flushing the old one where I specifically requested and paid for it.
Please see the attached image from the receipt and from the manual. Do you guys think the ATF oil is compatible with the manual transmission?

Glow Plug
My partners 2011 diesel with 201,000 miles is now getting harder to start from cold. After the glow plug light goes out it takes a good 5-6 seconds of cranking to fire up, and then it runs rough for a few more seconds until settling down to a smooth idle. I suspect one or more glow-plugs have failed, but I'm reluctant to change them after reading about how they can snap-off or strip the thread from the cylinder head even if you can remove them.

For this reason, I'm tempted to leave them unless and until the cold starting becomes intolerable.

On my own 2015 diesel, I don't have these issues, but would it be good idea to remove the glow plugs and refit them, if this makes them less likely to get stuck as the car gets ol...

Hi there,
I got an interesting problem on my i30 FD 2009 concerning front windows switch. Basically the situation here is:
- Driver window works normally,
- Passenger window from panel on passenger door works normally,
- Passenger window from panel on driver door would only go down  :'( to put it up I have to do it from passenger side, it won't go up from the drivers panel

With those symptoms I figured that all the mechanical part shall be fine and narrowed the problem to the drivers' side window steering panel. I disassembled electronic to the smallest parts and indeed, the switch on the right (bottom on the pic) is the trouble maker. Inside each element there are two button, the one for the window going up d...

Door Mirror
I had to do this recently as I got the apparently not-uncommon problem where the gear breaks and the motor for folding the mirror in runs all the time. There are a couple of pictures in posts and some videos on YouTube but they tend to jump straight from removing the mirror from the door directly to the gear. It took me quite a bit of time to work out how to disassemble the mirror so I thought I'd put some notes in case they're useful for anyone else who has to do it. I’m afraid it’s been a couple of weeks since I did the repair so my memory of the details is fading, and in retrospect I could have taken much better pictures, but at least it should make it quicker for you than it was for me. Anyway...
Lever off the top of little...

Kangaroo start
Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum and new to having to fix my car. About 3 days ago on a highway drive, I was coasting down the on-ramp and when I began to accelerate, the engine hesitated, then started jumping. the revs remained low despite my foot being at least half-way planted, but intermittently it jumped up, as though it was bunny hopping. Now it's started doing it at start also, as though the idle is too low and it's threatening to conk out. If I drive it in manual mode, it's a bit better, but the hesitation is still there. In auto it can also struggle to change gear unless I absolutely floor it.
As some background, I've had the accelerator hesitation since it was quite new. I told Hyundai and they'd reset the ECU (I assume),...

I have about 3000 miles on an I30 N-Line 1.4 petrol manual. Sometimes when I stop and then try to select reverse it feels reluctant to go in. I can force it and it will go in with a notchy feeling. If I go back to neutral and clutch out/in and try again it can be the same or perfectly smooth. And it can be perfectly smooth anyway. I make sure the clutch is fully down and pull the gearstick collar up fully. So I'm asking if this is a normal trait and is it something already known about. The forward gears are all fine. I got the car with 400 miles, it now has 3000 miles but i feel the issue is no worse or better in this time.

Sat Nav
Hi all,
I'm currently in Devon this week for a break, when I use the sat nav it's taking me down the single lane roads and they are literally one car width, you can't see anything around the bends. I've reverted to using Google maps as they use main A and B roads as much as possible, I've had both running at the same time and the Google map is much better to the point I ignore or turn off the Hyundai nav.
My question is where can you set what road types you want to use primarily? or am I just wishing?.
I've looked through but can't see settings related to using main roads as much as possible.
Many thanks if anyone knows.

Door Locking
Hi everyone,

I thought I would post this simple fix for the door lock actuator grinding noise in my 2011 FD i30. After reading through all the posts and YouTube videos I decided to pull it apart and see what the matter was. Also I was not buying a Hyundai part for $500 AUD.

Everything internally seemed fine which another user had also found. I connected the mechanism back and actuated it with my key. What I found was there was a lot of force driving the two parts of the housing apart. All the gears and mechanisms are housed in one half and the motors in the other. There are only plastic clips and locators that hold it together. When it is assembled I think the two halves of the housing move and grind the gears as the ...
