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...

My 6.5 year old diesel i30 with DCT has just finished 165,000km of problem free driving, but I have noticed the car getting louder at idle. It sounds like a loud rattle, and since it's a diesel I assumed the engine was the cause.  On some cold starts in the morning I can feel the idle being a little rough, with the tacho needle moving slightly at random.  The rattle is only there at idle, and never under load.

The dealer says the loud rattle is coming from the DCT, and has recommended a clutch and flywheel replacement. I imagine this is going to cost the thick end of AUD$5k. Are dealers qualified to do this repair, or does it go to a specialist?  I am waiting for a quote, but the dealer already said 'flywheels are expensive right...

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?

Good morning,
First time poster, thank you in advance for any help/advice!

I have a 2014 i30 trophy, 5 door hatch, 1.8L petrol.

Problem: occasionally very rough, jerking idle at start up and then occasionally dying.

Question: Thinking spark plugs, fuel filter or ignition coil may be to blame? What do to think? We are looking to fix this ourselves where possible.

Details: happening more frequently of late, car turns on but idles really rough, sort of jerking when really bad. Car tries to rev itself up and occasionally that fixes the issue, sometimes I'll rev the engine and that also fixes the issue. The other day, I let it sit for 20seconds doing this and it died and struggled to start up ag...

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 🙏
