Last night I took delivery of a 2008, 1.6lt diesel with the 5 speed and 166,000km on the odo. When I sat in the car for the very first time and pushed the clutch pedal it fell to the floor and would not come back up. I pulled it up with my hand and it became firmly stuck in the up position. The car could be shifted through all the gears smoothly with the motor running. I pushed the car into a parking space and left it till today. It was still firmly stuck this morning. I had it towed to a shop and after it was lowered off the truck I gave the key to the attendant, explained the issue, and he got in the car and immediately drove it into the shop no problem at all! Then their technician drove it a few blocks with no issues, put it on t...

Key Fob
A few days ago i got a warning for low battery level on my Smart Key.
After replacing the battery of the smart key the buttons won’t work anymore. If i get nearby with the smart key the car still unlocks and can be started. I’ve noticed also that the light on top of the smart key lights up when pressing the buttons. Is there a special handling i need to do to reprogram the buttons?

Hello everybody!

I have been dealing with a 1st gear "resistance" or hard engaging for some time.

I will tell you the succesion of events in order to have the complete picture:

-the clutch was changed in 2017 by the previous owner (i have the bill that states the clutch kit was replaced)
- I changed the damper and flushed the clutch about a month ago (it seemed to be a little better)
- I didn't change the master or slave cylinder (no leaks and they seem to move and operate correct)
- after the damper change the clutch fork seems to move a little bit more and the gears seemed to engage better but not perfect
- I changed the gearbox oil - little or no improvements
- the gearbox oil was...

Hi all

My daughter was in the osr seat and climbed forward still in the seat belt till it would go no further. It now won't retract. Popped the plastic cover and it looks like the actual mech is somewhere down in boot or under seats

Can anyone confirm where it is as want to try and see if it's twisted or will feed back in. It's a 2009 i30

Oil Pump
Has anyone tried this with a GD 1.6 CRDi?

I bought a cheap draining pump with a 6mm diameter hose that I assume you push down the dipstick tube until it reaches the bottom of the sump. However, the dipstick tube becomes much narrower about half way down. The dipstick is 5mm wide flat strip, and when it's half way down you can't rotate it any more, which suggests the tube narrows down to a thin slot that only the dipstick will get through. I wouldn't like to force the tube  down it in case anything breaks off and ends up in the oil.

I decided it was time to  put on the winters.  So took them out of the garage and went ... nowhere. The stupid "key" - just a socket with a fancy inner shape , worjed just fine on the first bolt and then it would jump off and slip on all 3  remaining wheels. WTH ... so looked like i ternals got semi stripped.
Got the part number and needed just the socket.
It appears thst lug nuts  key ( same part number) have about 12   patterns  and there is no way to get a socket that would guaranteed work on your lug nuts.
Dealer has a "" master key"  so only way is to take the car in their shop to undo the lug nuts and then install a new ones.
Does something similar happened to you guys?

I ended up getting a new wheel  l...

Hi all. I've had my brand new i30 NLine for 3 weeks now and absolutely love this car. However, I used the windscreen wipers for the second time last week and within 5 minutes the lower half of the drivers side wiper was skipping/juddering (only) on the way up. I don't imagine there's an issue with the windshield being overly dirty given it was a 2 week old car that's garaged and the other wiper works fine. Plus the dodgy wiper has a new blade.

Has anyone experienced this on their new Hyundai and is there an easy way to fix this or adjust the blade angle?

Am I better off just getting the Hyundai dealer to look at it when I take it for the 1,500 km complimentary check up?

Brake Pads
I just took my car for a quick "Health check" to the local Hyundai dealer and they said it was perfect. In the video they sent me, however, I noticed that the rear brake discs are quite corroded and only have a narrow band clear on them, while the front seem brand new. They did say that the brake pads are non-genuine, are lacking the anti squeal shims and are 10% worn.

Is this normal for i30 GD or is something wrong with the rear brakes? Thanks
