Wont Start
Good evening,

The other day I was driving my Hyundai (2011 i30 2.0 petrol, manual) out of a drive away where it suddenly the “engine ceased”. When I put the clutch in the car “engine locks up” and the peddles are “raised”, and my car won’t start- but does make a clunking noise. About 3 months ago I did have problems with my crankshaft seal and it kept popping off. I did ask the mechanic to do a pressure test but the said “they didn’t have time”.

Could that be related? My car also has been recalled for my part (ecu unit)  since this incident happened. And my clutch was on its way out.

Hope this makes sense. Not really good with cars but I hope someone here can help.

Roof Rack
Hi Guys

I have bought a secondhand 2014 i30 estate, and cannot find a roof rack to fit it, as it has no fixing points.  :scared:

Can anyone help?

Many thanks!

Belt failure
I have a 2011 i30 FD that needs new drive and alternator belts.

Can someone tell me how tight these belts need to be?

Hi all,
 its been a few years since I was active here... just too much on my plate and if curse the CW has been running like a dream, comfy, economical and all one really needs.
 Alas, it is rego time and so I have to splash out for some new "treads", Just had 75 K click over.

   I was tossing up between Goodyear Eagle F1 A5, or the Bridgestone Turanza or Triple Max.

 I read a lot of reviews and regrettably, some of the types that rate so well, ( on UK bases reviews ) are not available here as yet.
  So... there are heaps of i30s circulating in the forum, so has anyone had any really good recommendations or negatives for that matter?

The backlight on the blue led central display panel has failed, making all detail difficult or impossible to read.
Has anyone else experienced the problem, and if so how easy is it to remove the instrument cluster to perhaps carry out a diy repair.

Wise Owl
Some of you may recall that I've managed to rig up all sorts of brackets to convert the FD's top dash to accommodate things like GPS.

My latest 3D print is to accommodate a 25mm high Digital Volt Meter displaying 3 7-segment digits matching the blue of the instrument cluster. I haven't yet wired up the DVM (since that's the last step) but the quick (rough) prototype panel here is already holding it in place. The lid is held down via an extended paperclip secured to convenient nooks.

I like the low height resulting in a go-fast, sleek, slim instrumentation look. However, the DVM on its own looks lonely. I'm after ideas to include either side of the DVM to match its 25mm height. I could add an LED linear bargraph but I'm...

2009 I30 CRDI SX 1.6 Turning over, but not starting (Intermittend)

Normally the I30  immobiliser light turns off when you turn to start cranking and the car will fire up. If your imobiliser does not recognise your key the imobiliser light will be flashing during starting/cranking and will not fire up. (Expirienced this in the past, when I got a new key cover and the key clip had not been transfered into the new key cover)

My issue today is that sometimes during cranking the engine does not fire up and the immobiliser light stays on solid during cranking.

After an hour or so when I turned the key, everything is back to normal car running and no issues for another week.
Today while the car was idleling t...

Hello, guys. Hoping someone can shed some light on this. It's my family car and we heavily rely on this for work commutes, child care, etc.

Hyundai i30 1.4 petrol
 Car has been fine, started yesterday as normal. Within a few seconds of pulling away, I forgot something and turned the engine off, nipped into the house, came back out to find the car wouldn't start.

At first, I thought 'battery issue', called RAC breakdown out, they tested battery fine, electrics and locks, etc. Still working...

Car won't crank over with main key or spare I have

Mechanic couldn't get it started, advised not sure what the issue is, could be a security issue (immobiliser), a control module or some wiring loose or ...

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...
