Hey fellas

Something odd I noticed a while back but haven't paid much attention to as we are currently in a drought is that when I activate my rear wiper with the stalk it will sweep about 60% of the way then stop and pause for a few seconds before continuing on it's merry way.

Also, normally when turning the setting off it returns to the 'home' position but lately if I stop it if it's not at the 'home' position it will just stop wherever it happens to be on the glass and pause there until I turn it back on again and stop it when it rests at the 'home' position.

Man, I hope I am making sense :mrgreen: but that is the gist of it

Otherwise the car is still going very well and I have no gripes other ...

Hi all, I have a 2013 i30 elite 5dr & recently an incredibly annoying electronic beeping noise has been occurring every time I'm driving for the past 4-5 mths. The sound comes through the speakers interrupting anything else that I'm listening to whether it's radio or podcast etc. The radio & podcast is completely blocked out when the beeps come through. Sometimes there are one or two, other times 5 or 6. And it happens numerous times whilst driving I thought it might have been something to do with my iPhone & picking up reception signals but it still happens when I don't have my phone in the car

Hoping someone out there can help. It's driving me nuts!!!

Door Locking
Hi Folks
My drivers side rear door lock won't work now and again and its getting more frequent. 
At least twice a week now.
I'm guessing its the actuator that's faulty, but that's just a guess and I've not been in there as yet to look at it. 
Has anyone replaced the actuator and can give some guidance on this.
I found a simple 'walk through' on a different model on the UK site, link below.
Also the Hyundai part for this is around $423 so I'm guessing, (again), one from a breaker at around $100 will be the way to go.
Unfortunately that come with a risk i.e. it could be on its 'way out' too ?
So, can anyone assist with the best place to find a replacement and a 'how too guide' of some sort please !...

Testimonials
Ok, so I've done about 60 kms since picking our new DCT PD i30 SR up on Friday. (so showing nearly 100kms on the clock)

Normally I do about 1000kms in the first week, but have all sorts of other things happening at the moment.

So in no particular order.

- Already had one very positive comment about the styling (see separate thread here) :link: Dazzler family now has two i30's

- Valve caps on alloy wheels have been colour coded to the silver alloys (not black or stainless) - nice touch.

- LED light comes on behind front two door handles when you approach the car with a proximity key in your pocket!  :eek:

Had a chap called Harold come to our Garage sale today with a 2008 2.0 ltr Petrol Auto Hatch he has had since new.

They have been very happy with it but recently, every now and then they will be driving around on the highway and go to accelerate and there is some hesitation.

They have had the plugs and ignition leads replaced and it may have improved slightly, but it is still happening. Someone gave him the impression from what they have read on the net  :evil: it may be a transmission issue.

I told him about my association with the club and quizzed him about how the Transmission behaves when selecting Reverse and Drive and sounds like no delay there. I said, doesn't sound like Transmission to me. He asked ...

Snail
Hi,
I have a problem with my hyundai i30 1.4 2009 LPG.Sometimes when I start the car the engine runs really slow like it's going to turn off and the check engine light turns on all the time until the car turns off itself without me doing anything. When I told this to my mechanic he suggested that I push the accelerator pedal at the moment and help the engine,so I did that and when I press the pedal at the same moment the car turns off.
After that when I start the car again the engine starts like nothing has happened.
So,in the winter this has happened 1 or 2 times a month and now it happens nearly every day.
Does anyone has any experience with this type of problem?
I just want to add that recently I've changed the ...

Battery
Hi. I have a 2011 i30 Diesel Estate CRDI wirh 100,000 miles on the clock.  It's an ex police car and has full service history  (most parts replaced!). It drives like new. I've nituced a strange problem. It has a heavy duty battery fitted. When the car has been left for two days it cranks over fast and starts straight away. I can drive 50 miles on the motorway pull up at McDonald's with engine off but the ignition on for 30 minutes listening to the radio and using the electric window once. When I go to start the car the dashboard dins and the car cranks slow but starts. Checked the battery and it kicks out 12.6 volts and 14.7 while charging at tickover. Temperature gauge only goes to 80c.

I'm thinking battery drain or faulty batt...

Im thinking to get a mechanic to go and look at it.. is there anything that the mechanic should be specifically looking out for when it comes to the inspection?

Also.. Im looking at a 2012 i30 SLX Auto with 100000km on the clock for $11000.. am I paranoi...

Steering
My 2009 Hatch is just coming up to 100,000klms and a while back, to resolve a clunking noise, the steering bush was replaced. It’s been fine since.
Recently though, on a drive back from Brisbane I noticed a very slight tendency for the steering to sort of “tug” slightly in the straight ahead position. This is actually pretty hard to describe.

It’s only noticeable (so far) in excess of about 90 kph.

So, picture a straight road. No real need to move the steering wheel but suddenly there’ll be a very slight but clearly obvious, tug on the wheel. We’re not talking about pulling the car off line here but there IS a slightly discernible shift in the wheel under your hands.
You could almost suggest it is just norm...
