Hi all,

I'm aware this question has been asked a million times in a million formats, but I can't quite figure out an answer for sure.

I have a '2010' Hyundai i30 (FD) 1.6 CRDi auto, that was manufactured in October 2009 and first registered in December 2010. It's a '59 plate' but shows as a 2010 vehicle since it was registered essentially on Christmas. I'm in the UK, so part of the European market as such.

I cannot find out for sure, either from looking myself under the car, looking in my manual, asking around, looking on the forum etc, if I indeed have a CPF/DPF fitted to my car.

My VED/road tax is £150 a year, which is usually a good indicator if you have a DPF but not sure if that applie...

My 2015 GD CRDi with the 7 speed DCT has been flawless for the past 310,000kms (mostly highway).

A couple of days ago the wife drove it, to pick me up from the pub  :), and on the way home the transmission was appearing to play up. From the passenger seat, it appeared to be skipping gears. Took it for a drive the next day and no odd numbered gears, it would start in 2nd, then go to 4th and eventually 6th.

My local indie mechanic had a look at it and said that that the DCT appears to have failed. He said that it is beyond his skill level to properly diagnose and fix, as special diagnostic gear and tools are required. So off to the local Hyundai dealer on Monday to get it properly diagnosed.

Did some googling ...

Steering Bush
So i am psyching myself up to do the power steering bush on the wife's car, thanks to all you gurus who have done them before and left handy instructions! Now looking to buy the part but on a few sites they get a bit confusing over which part number it is. Are all the Hyundai rubber star bushes the same for other models as well, or was this one just for the i30 FD?

Hello everyone,

I have a i30 Fastback 2019 1.0 TGDI petrol 120Hp.

I did a long drive yesterday, Approximately 800 kms. I can see I have issue with the clutch. It feels completely loose for first 50% of the push.  After that, even when I press full 100% of the clutch I feel the gear shift is super hard (sometimes almost impossible).

I went to a local mechanic, he asked me to pump the clutch pedal rapidly to make the gearshift smoother (which actually worked) but again every few minutes later I have to pump it to shift the gears smoothly. So it definitely is a temporary solution.

Any suggestions?

Thank you

Hello to all,

I recently bought an i30 1.6 CRDI diesel and I'm absolutely in love with it. I do 80 kms 5 days a week so buying a diesel was a given. During my drive to work on Friday, I noticed a higher fuel consumption (I like driving in the most economical way possible) and a change in engine sound. That got me worried because I didn't know anything about DPF prior to this.

Driving back home after work didn't change the situation during those 40 kms. I assume that's because I always drive between 1500-2000 rpm no matter the speed (please correct me if I'm wrong). I later read that I should drive it at higher rpm to raise the temp of the engine so that the soot can be cleaned. I drove today for 20-30 minutes at about...

Hi guys,

I’m just outside at the moment. I’ve been replacing all the interior lights to LEDs (simple enough). However one of the LEDs were too big, I forced it in and seen the slightest spark. This turned all my interior lights off and now the car won’t lock using the central locking on the key.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I’ve taken a quick look at the car’s interior fuse box and they seem fine.

I have the FD, 1.4 Petrol.

Not great that I’m doing this on a cold night. At least it’s not raining. 😊

Thanks guys.

UK here, I have an I30 2011, I bought it second hand in 2018, it had a light pull to the left but nothing major, it has passed MOTs, had alignment, new tyres and tracking all done, in the last 3 months the pull has got worse and it shudders when reversing and turning and in the last few days if I'm idle the front left makes a shuddering noise too. Like I say I've has the tracking and tyres looked at but it's not them, wondering if it might be the steering column? Has anyone else had this?

Hi, someone has just told me that neither of the rear brake lights work on i30 2012 UK (2nd gen I think).
The centre led brake works fine and all the other lights work on the rear.
I'm not sure where the brake bullbs actually are where they are on the hatch or the sides of the car body.  The ones in the hatch have the reverse lights and another set of lights which both work.  So i guess they are in the side?

I don't want to start removing the housing as its odd that both bulbs have stopped working so thinking issue is something else.  Last week I did have to drive through a fairly big puddle in the road, maybe the level to the underside of the car so not sure if that might have caused the issue.

Also tried re...

I have a i30 - 2016 with a heated steering wheel.  Today I pushed the button a few times and nothing happened. After a few minutes I pressed it again and it worked.

Are there any specific conditions that hate to be met for the heater to start?
