I'm in the process of replacing the alternator on my old 2011 right-hand drive diesel. I've got as far as taking the old one off, just waiting for a reconditioned one to arrive. I took it apart and as expected, the slip-rings have deep grooves worn in them, and the brushes are worn down to almost nothing, but they've done pretty well to last 250,000 miles. Just a few tips for getting it out, assuming you're working from above.
1. Disconnect battery -ve terminal.
2. Have a pair of small side cutters on hand to snip through the cable-tie that straps the power cable to the alternator, as well as disconnecting the power cable to the alternator terminal, and unplugging the smaller wires.
3. Remove the screws holding the clu...

Glow Plug
Hi, new member here having recently purchased an i30 diesel 2013.
Not sure if this has happened to anyone else, bought the car and when I got home noticed it would misfire on idle on cold start for about 30 seconds around 600 tp 800 rpm.
After changing the fuel filter and it was no better, started looking at glow plugs, anyway, I removed the glow plug rail with intentions of checking the continuity on the plugs.
I couldn't get a decent reading on any of them so went and ordered some NGK replacements, put everything back together and the next day cold start was good around 1000 rpm dropping as it got warm and very smooth, second day same again so something I've done has miraculously fixed it, may still change the plugs but so...

Hatch FD
Hi, I've recently replaced the rubber steering coupler in my 2011 Hyundai i30 (this is a common problem). Simply put; disconnect a range of electrical plugs on the steering column, undo bolts/nuts so that steering column comes down, open power steering motor and replace coupler, then put everything back.

After doing all this, my brake lights are on permanently when the ignition is on. When the car is off (engine off and ignition off), the brake lights are off (so that's good). When I then press the brake pedal, the brake lights come on as they are supposed to (this to me suggest the brake switch at the pedal is OK - but I could be wrong). But then, as I said, once ignition/engine is on, brake lights are on all the time, whether b...

Hello Learned Korean Car Drivers,

Just curious - we don't drive a lot of mileage (about 15k/pa, rural 25km runs for 80% of it) - but I've gotten in the habit of changing our PD's oil every 5,000km.

I always use the spec'd oil generally C3 grade, Valvoline & Nulon were the last few I used.

I used to do the oil filter at 5k as well - but decided it could do the full 15k or12mth interval instead.

With high grade modern synthetics oils (as C3's are) and non-extreme driving conditions, for the pretty benign D4FB diesel engine how do folks feel about this practice?

While I know its doing no harm (other than to my wallet and environment) - is it likely to be doing any good or would the $$$ and...

Steering Bush
I have a steering wheel coupling issue with the 2012/2013 Hyundai i30 elite. The mechanic would charge me from $495 to $700 for this. Rang Hyundai and they said it's not covered under their warranty as my car is over 10 years old.

Could U recommend a mechanic that can fix this issue and also based in sydney that won't cost me arms and legs?

Oil Leak
Hi All,
I've a MY18 PD diesel that has the 7 speed DCT. First registered in 04JUL2017, so technically the 5yr warranty 'ended' a week and a bit ago.

I'd long ago decided it might be an idea to change the DCT fluid - even though Hyundai as to do at 120,000km (mine is at 64,000km). I only drive around once a fortnigh, my wife using it every day.

Having some extra time I removed the under engine guard after jacking it up and placing on stands today - immediately I noticed what appeared to be a build up of fluid on the underside of the DCT where the unit is screwed together - apparently Hyundai uses a sealant to form a gasket between the two metal sides.

I'd had an oil leak from the filter housing before (d...

Problems & Issues
I’ve noticed this before but never thought of it as a major problem until I had an issue with an indicator and whilst Hyundai were fixing it I was given an i20 for a week.

When I set off my RPM drop from X to 1K every time, what ever the mode, how ever slow or quick I release the clutch and how ever much I press the accelerator.

It causes a big jerk when setting off which I had learned to sort of subconsciously predict and ride the jerkiness, but for passengers it’s an uncomfortable take off. But since having the i20 courtesy car and realising how smooth and engaging both the accelerator and clutch felt it’s making me wonder if I’ve got issues with mine that I need to sort whilst it’s still under warranty.

Cruise Control
Hello i30 owners.
I have a 2013 GD i30 6spd Manual 1.6 CRDI Diesel.
It’s done 200,000ks. Lately, I have noticed the cruise control seems to be a bit dodgy. I will put it on in 4th or 5th and it will work then it will turn of for some reason. Has this happened to anyone else?
Would really appreciate some help here as I am completely stumped.

Hi all,

I recently had all four tyres on my Hyundai i30 replaced at the garage. Since they were replaced, I noticed my TPMS malfunction indicator appeared on my dashboard.

I asked the guy at the garage about it and he told me if I drive for about 15-20 minutes, it should automatically turn off.

I have done this but it did not turn off. I'm not getting a low tyre pressure warning on my dashboard and the TPMS malfunction indicator was not on before I took the car to the garage.

Does anyone have any advice for me please? And what I should do next?

Problems & Issues
Hi everyone,

I’m trying to find a brake switch for my 2013 i30, it’s the special edition 3dr manufactured in Czech Republic, so it’s a bit hard to find the exact one. The number on the actual brake switch is 13BS (I think as it’s a bit hard to read) my question is does anyone know where I can find this one or if a switch with a different number will work?

Thanks for anyone that can help 🙏
