Gearbox
Hi,

So I have a 2009 i30 with a 6 speed manual gearbox, where unfortunately the other day the 6th gear went. Am looking to buy a replacement gearbox, and have found some good options on eBay (which are in the region of 300 rather than the 900 quoted by my local gearbox specialist to sort it out). But all the options on eBay are for i30 models from 2012 onwards.

I know that i30s from 2012+ look different on the outside, but I was wondering how different they are on the inside, and whether there would be any compatibility issues in trying to fit a newer gearbox into my 2009 i30. Any thoughts?

Thanks

Door Locking
Greetings all,
I have a 2012 Trophy i30, which has just developed a new problem.

When I lock the car, I hear this horrid grinding/buzzing noise coming out of the rear passenger side door handle area. I did some searching on the forum and it seems this means it needs a new actuator or something...and that the lock is skipping teeth and making the noise.

It still locks OK - but is this anything to worry about re: the lock failing and potentially a security issue for the car???

It is still under warranty, so I'm guessing it will be covered, just know it will probably take a while to get into the dealer to get this fixed given the holidays.
