Roof Rack
Hi there,

First post here so hi!

I had a bit of an (ahem) accident involving my bike on the roof of my 2013 i30 hatchback and a rather low entrance to a car park just recently. Big shout to the Thule roof bars that, whilst totally bent and written off, buckled and popped off the roof quite nicely considering, leaving just a couple of small cosmetic scratches in the roof and slightly bent brake levers on the bike.

Or so I thought. Turns out the front right fixing point has got bent out of shape and the threads stripped a bit as the roof bar got pulled out so it's now oval with very little thread left. Has anyone ever replaced a fixing point? Any pointers as to how to do it? I'm guessing from what I can see i...

Actually, all the oil websites recommend the pink g12 coolant and nowhere the blue one. The dealer says blue.

But is that also the one which I need? Or yellow?

I have a 2008 i30cw. (Not sureif 66 or 85kw)...

Last night, I felt my clutch slip pretty bad, so... In the words of Rafiki, "It is time."

I've boiled my choices down to Sachs and Valeo. (Weigh in your choice/onion if you'd like)

Online, the Sachs is 240mm while the Valeo is 215. Both say they are for my car. Can somebody enlighten me here? Will either work? If so, Sachs is the obvious choice. (Planned upgrades include intake (done), exhaust and remap/chip (torn).

Thanks, and ... GO!

Oil Leak
Has anyone else experienced patches on the driveway from under the front left of the Hyundai I30? This has made 3 dark patches on my driveway and I cannot work out what it can be? I have placed several bit of cardboard/paper etc under and when checked appears to be just clear liquid??

However my concern is that these pathces dont clear up throughout the day amd have stained the driveway?? Leading me to believe this isent just water draining from the A/C?

Brake Pads
Hi guys. In the past couple of weeks there has been a strange rumbling noise coming from my car when breaking. Today I decided to remove my front right and back right wheel to have a closer inspection. The pads look like they are worn all the way down so defiantly need to replace them. Would the same be said for my discs?

I changed the rear pads on a Nissan Primera 2004 before but found it to be quite time consuming. Also run the risk of damaging my break fluid lines.

First question is how much should it cost for a garage to replace pads, discs and labor. Are the pads hard to replace myself?

Concerns with going to a garage are being overcharged and getting cheap quality parts. Few pictures below. Cheers  ...

Footwell Lights
Hi guys, just wondering if mine is a one off or it's just in all Pd's? Issue- when I have the vents on face and feet I cannot feel any air on my feet, when I have it just on feet there is heaps of air, anyone have the same issue?  Like to drive with vents on feet and face but nothing in mine.

My car went in for it's 20,000 klm service today.
With a slight problem that I logged with them last week
But they were quite happy to wait until the service was due.

For around the last 4 -6 weeks there had been a slight whistle coming from the turbo under boost.
Which sounded more like a boost leak.  It didn't affect the car either in performance or fuel economy.

But last week a work mate mentioned that when I was leaving work in the morning. Smoke (blue) was coming out of the exhaust.
SO I went home & slept.  When I woke up around 1:30pm. I got my phone & recorded the car from a cold start up. Well coldish. It was around 35 degrees that day.
There was smoke coming out of the exhaust with sma...
