I've been experiencing loss of hydraulic fluid, and thought it might be the clutch slave cylinder. My car is 2015 CRDi. I removed the plastic under-tray and can see that the car has an internal concentric release bearing, but the leak appears to be from the coupling in the photo. I hope that this part is separate from the release bearing, as it would be a gearbox removal job to get to it. Has anyone else had this problem? I made a short video showing how loose it is. Is this normal?

My car started developing this issue two days ago when I noticed smoke inside the car. I couldn'#039t find the source but it smelled like burning electric installation. Car behave mostly ok, first few seconds after start either cold or warm, engine works erratic and it settles after 10-15seconds. This morning I decided to investigate further, I opened the bonnet and noticed heat coming up from alternator area. Engine was cold and the exhaust was not even warm in touch, but the alternator was very hot, couldn'#039t touch it for longer than 2 seconds. I see no warning lights on the dashboard, car works okaish. So far I done following:
- reseated battery and cleaned connectors with sand paper,
- replaced ground cable between chassis and en...

Oil Leak
Hi there ...

Just after some advice ... our i30 Tourer diesel has done 127,000km of trouble free motoring. Aside from upcoming trailing arms that will need replacing at some stage, our mechanic sometime last year advised me there was quite a bit of oil buildup on the engine block.

Careful investigations by myself after I degreased everything clean, revealed one (or maybe more) of the bolts fastening the inlet manifold to the engine block, has been weeping oil - refer photos below, especially 3rd photo.

I'#039m assuming it'#039s diesel that'#039s leaking not engine oil (well I'#039m hoping not!) given there has not been any significant drop in engine oil levels; as well based on the (excellent) topic below of gunk from ...

I'#039ve just been investigating why the handbrake on my partner'#039s car has suddenly gone slack. This is a common problem so this time I posted a video on YouTube to show how to diagnose it.

:link: Slack handbrake on Hyundai i30 - YouTube

When I took the disc off the car, the lever wasn'#039t sticking, but I found that the circlip that retains the pivot pin had popped off and the pin was halfway to falling out completely. I had a new lever so didn'#039t attempt to refurbish the old one. Over 10 years and 219,000 miles, the slot in the pin that the circlip snaps into had almost disappeared. As mentioned in the video, if the ...

Well it's been 12 years since I bought my i30 new and it's still going strong. The only thing I've improved recently is to replace the headlights with LEDs, polish the headlights with a 3M kit (see before and after pics) and replace the clogged windshield washer jets with some cheapies from eBay.

Best car I've ever had. Next one will be an EV (in 2032 at this rate).

Problems & Issues
I would really appreciate any help or advice on this...

My UK 2016 i30 nbsp makes a squeaking/squealing sound as the wheels rotate but only after driving for some time eg 1/2 hour, nbsp and after coming down a very steep hill! It usually persists for some time after this.

I have had brakes and pads replaced but it was there before and after this work, although it is slightly higher-pitched now and appears more noticeable when reversing. I had taken the car in to the dealer but they couldn'#039t find anything obvious and the sound wasn'#039t there when they had the car.

 I have tried to video it and you can hear the sound -kind of chirping in forwards and more metallic in reverse (although slightly muffled by th...

Hi there,

First of all, my mother language is not english so i'#039m gonna do my best to explain the issue i'#039ve with my i30.

I'#039ve this car for 2.5 years now, it'#039s a 2012 GD i30 1.6 CRDI with 185.000 kms.

Last week, i went to my garage cause my gears are hard to pass so i asked him to flush the gearbox oil. He says that won'#039t do anything and for him my clutch is almost dead.
It doesn'#039t slip, but i'#039ve to push the pedal all the way thru to switch gears.

I wanted to replace the clutch but apparantly on this car, there is a dual mass flywheel, so replace it too is more than recommended.
He asks me 500€ for clutch replacement and 1400€ if i change the clutch + flywheel,

What do ...

Reversing Camera
Hi all first post on just after some information
Can you fit a OEM reverse camera from a 2017 model to 2013 hatch??
Going to upgrade head unit in the wife’s car but don’t really want to use an aftermarket camera if I can get an OEM to work but I’m only finding 2017+ cameras online
Love the idea of the hidden camera when not in use

Windscreen Washer
Morning all.
Total noob here, I use my car to get to work and back and haul things from A to B so please bear with any wrong terminology or assumptions in my post! nbsp It'#039s a UK RHD i30, 2012-Present "quotGD"quot flavour.

So the problem is that the windscreen washer on the passenger side doesn'#039t seem to have any pressure behind it, it just dribbles out. nbsp I'#039ve made a little video:

I'#039ve poked around with pins and given the nozzle itself a good wipe. nbsp There'#039s no water on the ground under/near the car so I don'#039t think there'#039s a leak anywhere, maybe just a blockage?

The driver side works perfectly fine - for the video I shoved a c...

If it's a short drive, there won't be any dripping but if I drive for more than 30 mins I will hear a constant dripping sound when I turn off the car. It drips for a couple minutes and stops. Is this common?

My car also seems to feel like it shudders more when on idle than it used to when I got it fresh. It sometimes shudders when I slow to a crawl and accelerate (not a complete stop). I've brought my car in for the respective car checks annually and mentioned all of this but always got back a negatory on detecting any issues. I'm due to bring it in for this year's inspection and will definitely bring it up again but would like to hear anyone else having to deal with these issues and if the dealership has been able to fix them.
