I have a 2018 i30 SR with the 1.6T and 7 Speed DCT gearbox. I am experiencing a whining noise that appears to be coming from the transmission. Does anyone have an idea of what the cause may be? The car has only done 35000 kms and serviced regularly.

Air Con
Dear All,

Needs your kind guidance on problem i am facing.

I have i30 (2012 model, Diesel crdi), i dont use AC so often as i live in a cold country. Last few times, when i tried to start AC, i noticed that it does not start sometimes. I tried to do some experimenting, and found out that if i switch off car and start again with AC already ON, it works (7 out of 10 times). Someone suggested, it could AC Gas is over and i need to refill, but i have a doubt that the behaviour that i have seen and described above, does not point to me as Gas shortage.

Thanks for your inputs.

New here and recently a SR owner.
Seems a great little car but the shifting is not quite right.
It hesitates and sometimes goes into an incorrect gear before it finds the correct one.
Put your foot down from a standing start it absolutely leaps off the mark and the problem only surfaces when cruising and a bit extra is asked for mainly on slight inclines or merging into a faster lane and you need some extra speed quick.

In top gear using cruise control at 110kms/hr and you come to a slight hill it starts to hesitate and finally changes down and revs and the speed goes up over the set speed and i have to put my foot on the brake to bring it down to the speed i want.
Even at 80kms/hr it will do the same...

Hi, just wondering is there anyway to auto close the sunroof when you turn the engine off or maybe close the sunroof by the keyfob? I just bought a i30 sr premium and keep leaving it opened when I turn the car off and I keep having to turn it back on to close the sunroof all the time.

I had another car with a sunroof and when you turned the engine off it closed automatically and also had a way to close it with the keyfob.

Also, is there a way for the recycled air button to stay on ? I normally leave this on in all cars I drive so you dont smell all the car fumes and things from the outside and in the i30, it turns off after about 1 min and cant seem to get it to stay on. Is mine broken or something ?

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?

My car started developing this issue two days ago when I noticed smoke inside the car. I couldn'#039t find the source but it smelled like burning electric installation. Car behave mostly ok, first few seconds after start either cold or warm, engine works erratic and it settles after 10-15seconds. This morning I decided to investigate further, I opened the bonnet and noticed heat coming up from alternator area. Engine was cold and the exhaust was not even warm in touch, but the alternator was very hot, couldn'#039t touch it for longer than 2 seconds. I see no warning lights on the dashboard, car works okaish. So far I done following:
- reseated battery and cleaned connectors with sand paper,
- replaced ground cable between chassis and en...

Oil Leak
Hi there ...

Just after some advice ... our i30 Tourer diesel has done 127,000km of trouble free motoring. Aside from upcoming trailing arms that will need replacing at some stage, our mechanic sometime last year advised me there was quite a bit of oil buildup on the engine block.

Careful investigations by myself after I degreased everything clean, revealed one (or maybe more) of the bolts fastening the inlet manifold to the engine block, has been weeping oil - refer photos below, especially 3rd photo.

I'#039m assuming it'#039s diesel that'#039s leaking not engine oil (well I'#039m hoping not!) given there has not been any significant drop in engine oil levels; as well based on the (excellent) topic below of gunk from ...

I'#039ve just been investigating why the handbrake on my partner'#039s 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.

:link: Slack handbrake on Hyundai i30 - YouTube

When I took the disc off the car, the lever wasn'#039t 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'#039t 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 ...

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).
