Handbrake
Hello, fellow i30 owners and lovers!

I've noticed an issues for 2 days now - as I pull the handbrake up when parked - the warning light on the dashboard does not come on. But in the ignition mode (before starting the engine) it does light up , as a pre-start check, I guess. So I wonder what to do now - either go HY and let them sort it out (there's still 4 months of warranty left), and hope that it's a warranty case, or go some independent garage (I got a few a locally) and let them boys fix it. I'm thinking it's probably the handbrake sensor, or some related wiring/plug on it.
Does anyone know where is it located exactly? Did anyone experience such an problem? The handbrake functions as normal, no issues there, just it's n...

Handbrake
Hi Has anyone found a caliper return spring that will fit the Handbrake return on the rear caliper - I just contacted the dealer and was told it's not available separately but comes as part of a caliper meaning you have to pay in the region of £250 for a £5 spring  :faint:

Bulbs
Hello All,

My i30 dashboard background light becomes unstable and flashes.
Starting up the engine, or even driving for 20 miles make no difference.
It only settles down when the side lights are turned on.

I have uploaded a short clip into youtube:
:link: hyundai i30 Dashboard background light unstable 20181109 121909 - YouTube


Much appreciated for any advice on this.

Regards,
Peter

Windscreen Washer
I was searching for the capacity for the windscreen washer reservoir on my 2017 PD i30 5 door hatch. The dashboard kindly notified me that the level was getting low after my first 5000kms of driving.

I could not find the capacity anywhere. I read Terry Tís thread but no definitive results there unfortunately.

Today I made up 5 litres of washer mixture and filled the reservoir. This was from totally empty to half way up the filler spout.

Capacity was 4.5 litres.

That is a quite a large capacity I think.

Oil
Hello all..

This has come up on a USA based forum.  In regards from changing the grade of oil used..

As most of us would know. Hyundai recommend in the owners handbook the use of 5W-30 oil..
This service bulletin has that to being changed to 5W-40 oil. For better engine protection.

While it is dated Sept 2016. The engines are still the current ones in use.

Thoughts??   If you change your own oil, what do you use..
I change mine at the 5000k mark. Dealer at the 10k service.  Using Penrite 5W-30 ACEA A5/B5    :link: FULL SYNTHETIC 5W-30 | Penrite Oil

Vibration
Hi Guys.
thought i share with you, in the hope I can find some tips.
I have this weird ticking or clicking noise that is exacerbated when the car is cold (even in hot weather)
specially, when I don't drive it for a day or two. The noise appears to come from the front right (drivers side) either at the very front of the dashboard or past the window in the bonnet.

IT does seem to sometimes click or tick when going over bumps and stuff, but I Can't reliably tell that, but definitely when cold.

My mechanic had a look to see if anything was loose, and put it down to something inside the dash.
but i don't agree, why the cold would have any effect on it?

after a 15m it would be back to silent....

ESP Off
I recently bought a second hand 2010 1.4 i30 and 2 weeks later I am experiencing a concerning issue. Below are the symptoms that I am having.

Car wont start on first try roughly 1 out of 12 times
ESP OFF light displayed on dash display and only clears when car is started up again.
Rev counter does not move even when I press on the accelerator
Car seems to be revving itself when ESP OFF light is no with non functioning rev counter
Signs that car has slightly lower power or acceleration than expected

I have read a lot of posts regarding similar symptoms but non mentioned the car revving itself. I have compiled a list of faults below gathered from other posts.

Problems & Issues
Hi all,

I did some searching and couldn't find much...

I turned a corner and shortly after the car stalled and wouldn't immediately start again despite cranking over. Only thing different was the battery light was on. AC was on (that's normally on) I turned the car off, waited 10 seconds, turned it on again and it started. No battery light on again. Drove another 10 minutes without issue, though I'm paranoid now haha.

Any suggestions as to what may have caused it or what i could test for? There hasn't been any recent servicing. Nothing else unusual. Kinda freaked me out :)

Car is a 2011 FD Auto Diesel SLX located in Australia. 204,000 km on the clock. No other previous issues (touch wood).

Servicing
Hi everyone, I have just acquired a 2008 FD 2Lt with a blown engine and need to swap it out. Looking for technical advice regards the best method.  I have a compatible second hand engine from a 2010 FD.

Please reply if you have had experience with the task outlined above (engine remove and replace) or you can point me in the direction of technical manual or an expert.

Air Con
Dump question.

gas is leaking from the compressor via the o-rings that connect the two pipes that come out the front.

What size are these o-rings

and are aircon o-rings different from o-rings you would use on the radiator, for example.

2009 1.6 crdi vehicle.

Thanks
