Morning All,

I have the above hyundai and it has been going well

Last November, it threw a check engine light, Hyundai dealership tracked it to a plug had come unclipped(?????) from the EGR harness

Ok no worries

Anyways drove it out of the workshop and the check engine light came on again  :'( :'( :'(

This time they changed out the EGR on warranty

My son drove the car from then till May/June when my daughter got her licence ( My son has no interest under the bonnet!!!!! )

We then lifted the bonnet (as I was showing my daughter what to check) to find the coolant not in the header/expansion tank and also it took coolant in the radiator

Took it to the deal...

Bright Idea
My compressor coil broke down some time ago. Just a lot of sweaty driving, but otherwise did not affect the cars performance. I got a service kit, but unfortunately they send wrong part. Kit had a 4pk pulley as the car has 5pk belt system. I thought I might be able to change just the coil, if that would be same size. Yesterday the engine started make nasty sounds. I noticed that the AC compressor bearing broke down. Little bit of measuring with a fishing line and I drove to a parts store to get shorter belt. I placed the shorter belt so that it not going to the ac pulley at all. Seemed to work. At least I was able to drive home with it.

I've used 1810 and 1815 belts previously with ac. Now I have 1645 belt. Just a tip, if someone...

Wont Start
Hi all, I'm hoping I can get some help/ advice. I have seen quite a few post about rough idle/ flickering lights / starting issues with their i30 Sr's. but no one mentioning if they have gotten the issue solved.

im starting a new thread so hopefully ill get more responses. but yeah just wanting to know how many people have been effected and how many people have managed to get it fixed?

my super fun journey so far...

2017 PD SR with only 36000km on it

noticed flickering lights and the the idle was abnormally rough, so on my next service I mentioned it and the dealer said "book it in again as we need a full day to look at the transmission and please try get footage of the flickering"

Door Locking
A few months ago, my GD  Premium started having this weird issue where the car would not unlock by pressing the button in the handle.

I thought it was the remote battery, so I got a new one, but the issue remained.
sometimes it would unlock, then relock.
one time it went crazy and kept locking/unlocking, so I'm now unlocking it old school via the remote only.

Anyone has any tips on what this might be?

PS: It does this with any key, on any door.

Windscreen Washer
When the rear washer on my 2015 car stopped working, even though I could hear the pump working, I suspected the check valve was faulty. Unlike the FD where the check valve is concealed under the roof lining, the GD has the valve conveniently located where the hose crosses over the hinge line at the tailgate. All that is required is to pull the hoses off the valve. The end of the valve has a yellow insert, I pulled this out by pushing a round needle file into the bore and pulled it out. Inside is a spring, a piston, and a rubber seal which locates onto the end of the piston. There seems very little to go wrong, but it can stick and stop the water getting through. I re-fitted the valve body to the hoses without any of the internals and the wa...

Hi all,

I'm disapointed with no possibility of windows movement when engine is off. There is only short time period (less than 1 minute after switch off - but it stops immediately if any doors are open in this time - I really don't understand why it is so - for me it is insane) while they're still operational. I want to extend this operability - ideally while all time, while is car unlocked or at least extend the time of power on to about 30min and remove the reset when doors are open.. i.e. I'm waiting in parking place waiting for a wife  :P and I want to open or close windows while engine is off... I've found schematic attached below, so the goal is set power RH and LH relay on while car is not locked. I don't know those relays...

I have a 2018 i30 SR with the 1.6T and 7 Speed DCT gearbox. I am experiencing a whining noise that appears to be coming from the transmission. Does anyone have an idea of what the cause may be? The car has only done 35000 kms and serviced regularly.

Air Con
Dear All,

Needs your kind guidance on problem i am facing.

I have i30 (2012 model, Diesel crdi), i dont use AC so often as i live in a cold country. Last few times, when i tried to start AC, i noticed that it does not start sometimes. I tried to do some experimenting, and found out that if i switch off car and start again with AC already ON, it works (7 out of 10 times). Someone suggested, it could AC Gas is over and i need to refill, but i have a doubt that the behaviour that i have seen and described above, does not point to me as Gas shortage.

Thanks for your inputs.

New here and recently a SR owner.
Seems a great little car but the shifting is not quite right.
It hesitates and sometimes goes into an incorrect gear before it finds the correct one.
Put your foot down from a standing start it absolutely leaps off the mark and the problem only surfaces when cruising and a bit extra is asked for mainly on slight inclines or merging into a faster lane and you need some extra speed quick.

In top gear using cruise control at 110kms/hr and you come to a slight hill it starts to hesitate and finally changes down and revs and the speed goes up over the set speed and i have to put my foot on the brake to bring it down to the speed i want.
Even at 80kms/hr it will do the same...
