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...

Hi guys,

I'm picking up my Manual i30 SR soon and noticed that the headlights aren't as white as the premium model.
Any idea if I can just change the bulb? If so, what bulb is it?
tried looking on the internet to no avail.  :(

Links to photos for example.

My 'Active' spec i30 doesn't have tweeters in the front, and I think the sound quality suffers for it.   So to try to improve it, I've got hold of some original mirror covers that do contain tweeters (they must have come from a higher spec i30), and I want to fit these in place of mine.
Now I was hoping that I would remove my mirror covers to find that the wiring for the tweeter would be there, ready and waiting...  But sadly it's not, so I have some wiring to do.  To help me with this, can anyone with the same model i30 whose car had factory-fitted tweeters tell me a bit about how they're wired?  ie. are they wired from the main speakers; if so is there a crossover somewhere?  Or do they seem to be wired directly from ...

I put my Dec 2015 i30 turbo auto in for its 15,000kms service. Returning to the dealer to pick it up I was told I would have to re book it in as there was a noise comming from the gearbox. I booked it back in and the gearbox was taken out and was supposeing fixed. At the 30,000 service I mentioned the noise was still there. The car was running ok except when idleing it would make a rattling noise.As soon as it went above idle the rattle would go. After noticing this I took it back to the dealer and the head machinic came out and I showed him the problem. He said it was only that it was a diesel motor making the rattle. The 45,000klms service I again mentioned the problem. It was booked in again to hopefully have the problem fixed. I receive...

A set of issues been bugging me if any one can help

ESC light comes on on every drive cycle at at 50 mph - stays lit. Turn car off/on it resets, then 50 mph again
Start/stop does not work
Cruise control won't engage
On gear change, revs seem to drop dramatically almost lurches

ODBII reader - no codes

I have tried - checking all wheel sensors/cleaned. All rotor teeth seem present
Brake light come on OK - so switch is good ?

Dealer wants 96 to read the code - thats a 5 min job - so I am fighting all logic to work out whats wrong than pay anyone who thinks thats acceptable price

If a wheel sensor, ABS light shoudl be on too
Throttle pos sensor would show hunting ...

Hi guys,
Has anybody used exhaust wrap on there Hyundai i30 1.6l CRDi. And if yes where? and was it worth it?
I have seen a lot of people use these wraps around exhaust headers, but on my car that's inaccessible, unless I lift the entire engine of course (impossible with the tools I have). So has anyone tried this product?
Many thanks in advance!
P.S. Here is a link of the product I am talking about :link: DEI Titanium Exhaust Wrap - 2" X 50' Roll

I have checked everywhere I can think of, & my problem is without doubt is freeplay in the right side Ball Assembly that can be located at either end of the steering rack, & once upon a time, in other vehicles these ball assemblies were adjustable in order to remove the freeplay that one feels coming from the unit. I have had the car up on a hoist, & this loose Steering Rack Ball End Ball Assembly  on the right side is where the movement is coming from. My life before (courtesy of a  drunken driver) was as an Automotive  TAFE Teacher, & the Tradesman who checked the source of the wear out with me, was certainly one of the best Automotive Mechanics that left our TAFE College about 18 years ago.
Has anyone else experienced this problem, ...

Hi, I have a 2013 i30 Premium. The sunroof has a water leak on the passengers side and the leak is wetting the roof lining just where it meets the plastic cover on the pillar. I have read that there are drainage channels on i30's that can get blocked but I have had no luck finding them.

There are two flat plastic strips that run along both sides of the sunroof and you can see a rubber seal. To clean the drain tubes if there are any, how do you access them? Do the flat plastic strips come off somehow? Any help would be appreciated. Alternatively I will have to take it to a dealer. Thanks Spin.

Had a break-down yesterday and the RACV guy analysed and decided that I need a new alternator, after a new battery installed and the 'battery' indicator on the dashboard panel still lit. The car starts fine now with the new battery, but according to the RACV it runs purely on battery as the alternator is not working.

I checked the alternator fuse and it's not blown up... so I think I will need a new alternator.

Got a quote $676 from a local mechanic for a brand new alternator installed, but found some used ones from eBay. I noticed some have 2-pin and 3-pin model. Is there a way to find out which one do I have without taking it out first?

Is replacing an alternator something that is doable from home by an a...
