Hi all I'm in the UK and I'm just about to change the engine oil in my 2013 1.6 petrol engine i30. In my manual it says to use an ACEA A5 oil. BUT. Under the bonnet There is an official Hyundai /shell sticker that says" important use only ACEA C3 Low Ash oil". I phoned Hyundai and they initially said to me to go with what the manual says and use a shell ACEA A5 oil. I phoned a few other dealers and some didn't even know what an ACEA  grade is.  One dealer said that their bulk oil is C3 and that is what they would use. Still confused i iPhoned Hyundai back they were very helpful and went into a more technical sheet that showed a shell Helix oil e c t which is in fact a C3. If I put my registration number in the Shell oil finder an A5 oil is ...

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  ...
