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.


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 ...

Hi all, just got my first (free) service done yesterday on my PD I30. All went good but was  very surprised that oil was not replaced. Just a check of the fluid levels only. Next service is at 7500kms (1.6 turbo) or 6 months. Manager said they use semi syn castrol 5W30 Magnatec I suspect, he said i can bring in my own oil to use. Was thinking of using a full syn may be Penrite or Nulon. Any recommendations would be appreciated

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,

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

Hi about to purchase i30 2014 Tourer Elite 1.6 CDRi GD in Australia & wondered if anyone knew what original tyres were? Wondering if 28,000 kms odometer  reading is genuine, given prevalence of odometer wind back? Car History Report doesn't record any odometer info. Figured if it still had original tyres, I'd believe low odometer reading. Still waiting to see service history. If that checks ok, will get NRMA report.
Any other comments or advice on Tourer Elite 1.6 CDRi GD appreciated. I've had a Golf 77tdi (just written off) but none around to purchase with low kms. So, been looking at Hyundai's (both Active and Elite).

Air Con
Recently on one of my posts I complained that the aircon and heater did not work very well. Got a few replies suggesting re-gassing the aircon.
During a sudden moment of inspiration I consulted the owners manual, and located the pollen filter. This was of course completely blocked with dust and plant material. Blowing this out and then subsequently replacing has unsurprisingly resolved the climate issues.
I'm sure there is a moral here somewhere.
