Sunroof
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.

Alternator
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...

Water Pump
Anyone have any knowledge of replacing a water pump on a 1.6 CRDI? Has anyone done this before, and is it a relatively easy process? One of the pulleys is seized and I believe it to be the water pump.
Cheers

ABS & disks
I recently bought an i30 2015 and on the whole have been very pleased with it. However, I recently had to do an emergency stop as a cyclist came across my path. It seemed like the ABS came on too strong such that I couldn't stop but that's only my perception. Luckily the cyclist was OK and nothing is happening as a result but I find that I can't trust my brakes now. Is there any brake issue with this model and, if so, how can I rectify it?

Problems & Issues
So we meet again...


Goodmorning dear i30 owners (+1 timezone)  :P

Once again i am having trouble with our beloved i30 1.4 gasoline 2008.


This time we are doing a big sugery.  Clutch change (thank you first owner)

This came as a shock as it has never shown any signs of bad gear shifting or anything like it.

Happened on my way back from work, as it didn't accelerate if i went pass 2000-2200 rpm. Top speed is now 45-50 km/h. U feel it too as u shift gear.

Anyway.

I got a dear friend of mine to fix the whole operation for just 1000 DKK (200 AUD, 158 USD).

I did buy the clutch set myself.

As we wanted to take the transmission off from ...

Brake Pads
At the first year health check, I reported that the brakes seemed to be binding when warm - when allowing the vehicle to roll to a stop, it felt as if the brakes were still being lightly applied. This was combined with the rear wheels having more brake dust than the fronts. The dealership said there was no issue found.

At the second year service the vehicle was under 20,000 miles and under 2 years old - therefore within the warranty period. Again the problem was reported and logged without replication by the dealership.

The third year health check was carried out this week. They requested around 295 (price only given verbally) to replace the rear discs and pads as the Hyundai warranty only lasts for two years. Yet it...

Kangaroo start
Hello everyone!

This is my first contribution to the forum, so hope I'm not breaking any rules or anything.

I recently bought a b/d i30 SE reg. Nov2015, it's got 26k miles on the clock now. Just couple weeks ago I noticed this strange behaviour. When I get my foot off the accelerator in 4th gear while doing around 36mph, instead of getting smooth enginbraking it jerks/shudders brake until either foot back on the gas or the speed drops to 34 mph. It doesn't happen every time and never occurred going uphill. But happens quite often and it drives me crazy. Also never happens in any other gear or speed. Only 4th gear 36mph.

Anybody have experienced or dealt with anything like this?
Any ideas what could ...

Door Handle (internal)
Hi all!

I hope someone can help me.
I have a 59 plate (first reg in 01/2010) of Hyundai I30 Comfort, 1396cc, 5 doors.

When I try to unlock the car using central locking all the doors unlock except the rear left passenger's door.
I have tried pulling the door leaver while pressing the central locking key to unlock but no luck either.
I can see the central locking mechanism move/flinch when I press the central locking fob or button in the car but there doesn't seem to be enough force to unlock it.

Would someone be able to help me with this matter?
I would appreciate any piece of advise!
Thank you!

Kind regards,
Alicja

Problems & Issues
Hi all, just bought a 2009 i30 estate 1.6 crdi premium. Having a few little problems, the trip switch doesn't work, the blowers are a sporadic and sometimes don't come on or go off then back on again randomly and the air con doesn't feel cold.

Have checked fuses and nothing found, checked fuses in the engine bay and again nothing found. Although the diagram on the engine bay depicts another row of fuses that aren't there. Haven't had the chance yet to check if the compressor is running when the a/c is on and probably needs a recharge,

Any advice? Thanks
