Possessed
As I mentioned in previous posts under "General Discussion", my i30 was making an unhealthy sound which was determined to be a timing chain problem. But due to the cost and complexity of doing the repairs with the engine still in the car, my mechanic suggested we get a low mileage motor from a Hyundai wrecker on the Sunshine Coast. He got one with supposedly 75,000 on it, where mine was up at just over 252,000kms. Sounded like a good idea.

I picked it up yesterday with glowing reports from him about what a lovely little car it is to drive. I hadn't gone more than 100 metres in it, when I put the foot down a bit in second gear, and it just died! It restarted OK, but each time I tried to accelerate, it would do it again. By "dying"...

Footrest
Hi all

Has anyone done this before or could point me in the right direction?

Hyundai foot rest arrived yesterday but doesn't fit. Do I simply have the wrong part number or will I need to get creative in getting this to fit?

Thanks in advance :) [img width=800 height=450]https...

Problems & Issues
re: i30 PD with Auto Link (ODB connected bluetooth module)

Has anybody else's Auto Link suddenly stopped working after 13th October 2017?
Mine was working "fine" up until that date, and since then, no further comms.
When re-connecting to it, the module shows up and is selectable, but once selected, it can't communicate with the car, to read the VIN for example.
Fails bluetooth connectivity test, blue light doesn't illuminate on the module either.

Servicing
Hi,

I am after some advise please. I bought my I-30 a year ago now and only done 4k miles. When I bought it it had a service as part of deal in buying it. Is there any point in servicing it with little millage done? I am in two minds whether its worth it this year and do next year, there are no issues with the car and it runs lovely. Thinking if its not broke don't fix it? I got to MOT the car soon anyway which will bring anything up not aware of.

Thanks in advance.

Seal
I wanted to share my experience about buying and installing  extra rubbers for doors, bonnet etc
Something like that

but I have not bought a kit but individualy rubbers p type z type etc. I have links below in my second message.

After installing them I hear for sure  less road noise with a  cost of rubbers that was only 20 pounds. I have tested the car to roads that are harsh and the noise is
reduced significally and I can hear much better the music! Also doors closing noise is better( just need more pressure to close). I can add some photos about the changes I have made this week.


Regards!

Gearbox
We bought a Hyundai i30 1.6 CRDi 110 DCT-7 Blue Drive , Diesel, Automatic, Executive in October 2015. It is LHD and French registered but we have it looked after here in the UK by Johnson of Oxford because the service level we got in France just didnít do it. We love the car, the build quality, thoughtful design and the way it drives.

A couple of months ago with about 18K miles (29k Km) I noticed a juddering when pulling away in traffic or edging forward in queues and the gearbox didnít always want to change down a gear when going up hills in gears below 4th. It is like driving with a learner! Have you experienced this?

It is not a great problem but I thought I should check it out while in the UK as I wouldnít want the...

Rattle
Hi All

Bought a second hand i30 Turbo about 3 weeks ago but due to other commitments it has sat mostly on the drive and have only done about 150 miles in it since collection (22,000 when bought)

I noticed a knocking sound coming from the driver-side front wheel area last night when driving home and was just wondering if anyone's had anything similar.

Knocking noise rises and falls to match road speed and the brakes and engine seem unaffected so I hope (for sake of cost) that something has just come loose or a wheel bearing needs replacing.

Car was in good nick when collected from Hyundai and has been seemingly well looked after by previous owner (way more servicing/maintenance in log book than re...
