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

My UK 2016 i30 nbsp makes a squeaking/squealing sound as the wheels rotate but only after driving for some time eg 1/2 hour, nbsp 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'#039t find anything obvious and the sound wasn'#039t 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 th...

Clutch
Hi there,

First of all, my mother language is not english so i'#039m gonna do my best to explain the issue i'#039ve with my i30.

I'#039ve this car for 2.5 years now, it'#039s 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'#039t do anything and for him my clutch is almost dead.
It doesn'#039t slip, but i'#039ve 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 ...

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! nbsp It'#039s a UK RHD i30, 2012-Present "quotGD"quot flavour.

So the problem is that the windscreen washer on the passenger side doesn'#039t seem to have any pressure behind it, it just dribbles out. nbsp I'#039ve made a little video:



I'#039ve poked around with pins and given the nozzle itself a good wipe. nbsp There'#039s no water on the ground under/near the car so I don'#039t think there'#039s a leak anywhere, maybe just a blockage?

The driver side works perfectly fine - for the video I shoved a c...

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?

Gear Stick Manual
Evening all, first post and not someone who has a great knowledge or maintaining cars, so please dumb down for a beginner!!
I'#039ve had my 2009 1.6l manual i30 for about 3 years. It'#039s only done 40k miles, but I'#039ve had recurring issues with the gear changes for a while. First time, they started getting difficult regularly, as in I had to force it into gear. I got a new clutch installed and that seemed to solve it for a few months.
However, today I noticed that it was slightly tougher than before, wasn'#039t too worried as I thought that would be normal once the clutch had worn in. Unfortunately, there were several times when I couldn'#039t get it into gear at all, certainly lower gears. I thought it was me, that I wasn'#039t depressing th...

Radio
Hello all, need some help!
My 2009 i30 has stood for a few months, a few weeks ago I discovered the battery was dead so I took it off the charge it up, I left it off the car for a few weeks and when I put it back on my stereo will now not work at all, nothing on screen. I have checked the fuse marked audio and clock as the handbook appears to say it'#039s connected to the audio? you can see from the pictures the audio fuse inside a yellow clip that nbsp I now know I should have pulled out when parking the car up! The audio fuse looked intact but I changed it for another 15a fuse that I knew was working but this did not change anything. Can anyone give me any advice on whether I need to do something with the ignition key or if there'#039s an int...

Steering
Hi there, I recently changed the power steering coupling on my 2011 i30cw CRDI SX wagon. The clunking stopped and it works perfectly. It sounds like it'#039s coming from the electric motor, and it sounds louder when I turn the wheel fast. The sound is unnoticeable on normal driving. You can only here it when you turn the wheel fast and it'#039s almost a clicking whir sound. Could I have done the motor bolts up too tightly? It sounds to me like it'#039s coming from the motor and maybe the bearing of the motor is stressed due to new coupling and/or me doing it too tight. When I first got the car it had this sound but wasn'#039t as noticeable; you really had to turn the wheel fast to hear it. Any ideas?

I had a good look on the forum and this i...
