Unfortunately, discovered another issue with my PD 2018 i30 crdi DCT estate.

When I turn on the rear de-mister button on the dashboard it causes my radio to cut out for a short while as if it's lost signal. Happens about 70% of the time Everything else carries on and works as normal.

Anybody else have similar issues or know how to fix it ?

Hi all,

I have a 53 plate 1.6 diesel i30, I read another sticky post about clutch issues but honestly as a non mechanically minded person it didn't make a lot of sense. I mean once I know what something is I'll be ok, I am in the IT game and know my way round wiring and and like better. My Gearbox went at 60k so I had it and the clutch replaced (pattern part). Whilst doing the 90k service it came off the ramp and the clutch died again, something about a spring clip breaking. They replaced the clutch again but the bite point is rock bottom, I have to stomp on the pedal and I can feel things biting / difficult to change gear occasionally. This can't be good for the car and I plan on riding this thing until electric is affordable so...

Windscreen Washer
Front and back window washer doesnt squirt, and no noise is made when i turn them on. So i assume its the pump

Is this the correct part number for my model : 98510-2L100

are they easy enough to replace ? - aka nothing special to know.

Contacted Hyundai about head unit resetting and defaulting back to factory setting for time.
And also randomly cutting out

No maps as base version. Is this a known issue?  Only issue I can find is for the map versions causing issues.

Air Con
So on Thursday I had Halfords check my air con.
It didn’t have any so I paid £50 to have it re gassed.
Worked perfectly went from 24c to 9c so a difference of 13c which is pretty good.
On Friday I went for a drive and noticed the air con wasn’t working so I took it back to Halfords the pressure was bang on at 26 psi
They toppped it back up and I was getting a reading of 5c which was the same as the outside temp.
However checked it last night and I was only seeing a drop of 5c checked it again today and nothing the compressor isn’t even turning on so I guess I have a leak.
 Fingers crossed it’s nothing serious.

Oil Leak
Hi guys so my car has had an engine oil leak for about 4 years from what I can see by reading old mot certificates.
I have found the leak but I cannot seem to find the parts needed to fix it.

The rocker cover is leaking from the main gasket and a couple of the injector oil seals on the rocker cover not the injectors themselves just to be clear.
I have been told that you can only buy these parts as part of a head gasket kit.
Surly this is not rite.
When I bought the car the oil level was over the max mark. 8 months later and about 1000 miles it is now reading normally.
I plan on changing the oil and filter this week.
Changing the gasket/seals is easy enough the only down side is that the injectors ha...

Hi guys I am new to the site I just want to share with you some important information that I have learnt over the last few days and the importance of using a digital thermometer when bleeding the coolant system. This is a bit of a long one but please bear with me.

For the last few months i have had to bleed the coolant  system far too many times for one reason or the other.
 In the first month of owning the car I had to change the coolant cap as it fell apart.
The thermostat as it was sticking.
There was a small amount of gunk in the system so I used washing detergent to clean and flush  it with the hose pipe to ensure that there was no blockage etc…
I must add that there was no oil or any signs of a blown he...

Wont Start
 In August of this year, I bought a Hyundai i30 cw, 1.6 crdi, 90 hp, 2009. It burned a little harder, but the seller said that it was because the car had been parked longer and driven less, the battery was under warranty. However, this continued with me, the starter was made because it was slower (it changed brushes and bushings, rotor bearing), it worked better but still fired from the 2nd time. Checked fuel pressure and pump on diagnostics, everything is ok, there are no errors and parameters are ok, heaters removed and checked, everything works. As the weather is colder now, it starts from the 3rd time and it always happens when the engine cools down, it starts hot on the tooth. I didn't mention that it jerks a little at 1500 rpm, it doe...
