I'm looking at removing my swirl control actuator to see if I can service the item and clear the error code once re-installed.

I'm somewhat stumped at how this is removed at the swirl flap end?

Here's the actuator assembly:

You can see the pivot point on the actuator in the middle of this image (white nylon washer) and then the connecting rod that goes down towards the swirl flaps at the manifold.

At the end of the connecting rod it looks like there's a split pin and a 10mm nut but it does not look like an easy access scenario and I'm concerned that ...

I'm not going to go over old ground as I've said plenty on here about the "features and benefits" of my 2017 i30 PD SR.

Now that she's traded after doing around 66,500 kilometres in 26 and a half months I just thought I'd post a few words.

Basically all I want to say is the SR/N-Line is a brilliant car. Aside from a few QC issues (like warm start problems) which I fortunately didn't have, it definitely punches well above its weight.

It always amazed me how well it filled the shoes of the Holden Calais V that I had previously (which was also awesome)

I think the biggest strength of the SR/N-Line is the overall balance of features/ value/ performance/ Economy and user friendliness.

So we have a 2010 i30 1.6 Diesel.
When the clutch is pressed then it makes a squeaking noise.
It does this when the engine is off.
The clutch feels ok and the bite point doesnít feel like itís moved.
When drive, once the clutch is down, the squeak is gone.
The pressure is taken off the clutch, it doesnít squeak.
The squeak is louder on the outside of the car, than when sat inside; i.e itís coming from the engine bay.

Had a read of this....
:link: Clutch squeak mystery
...and wandered off fairly content that itís a squeak on the release lever and not a big deal.

This is a small sunday DIY.
Iím the second owner and the previous one messed up with the steering wheel. Today I decided to try out the glue method by same Youtubers.

A few holes on the top

Fill it with super glue and sand down with 1200

Mark and paint

Outcome. Not too bad and Iím happy with that.

Check Engine Light
Hi everyone, im a noob, so go easy for my first question.
my check engine light has come on and off and on again, I have talked to my mechanic and he says the code is the catalytic converter, he reset it and if it comes back on take it to the dealer ,because its still under warranty ( for 1 more month)
it just turned off again.
 ok here is the decider
the petrol prices were high at the time so I splashed 10Lt of E10 (engine light came on)
went back to 98 premium ( engine ight went off eventually)
Also in the Hyundai hand book it says im not allowed to use any ethanol or methanol based fuels ( which can void warranty)

Does anyone have an idea if Hyundai will fix it under warranty if the engine light ...

Belt failure
I've noticed while researching some problems with my i30 CRDi 1.6 (build date Sep 2008) that some people are suffering early serpentine belt failure, and I think I have correctly traced the cause, at least in my case, to a missing pin from the belt tensioner.  I wonder if this has affected other people without them realising it.

To explain I need to go back in time a bit - for the period 2009 when I bought the car, until the serpentine belt was replaced by a mechanic in 2017, there were no major problems with the car.  So in 2017, with 161,000km on the odometer, I was in far north Queensland in Cooktown and decided to get the car checked over by a mechanic.

The mechanic said the serpentine belt needed to be re...

New to the forum.
I have a 2013 i30 diesel and I think the handbrake cable has become too stretched to operate the rear calipers effectively. I am wondering how to replace the cables and how difficult it would be. Also on a slightly related note I can't find any info on how to remove the centre console around the handbrake to get better access to the cables. Also in case there is something I've missed, is there anything 'special' that needs doing to 'reset' the handbrake when new rear calipers have been fitted as the car is not being held by the handbrake on a slope at the moment. Thanks.

Regarding 2011 i30.
I usually listen to music from Spotify by connecting my iPhone through the USB, but it quite often glitches and suddenly changes to the radio, or the system turns off, or the volume turns up to 100, or the song starts skipping. It is usually triggered by driving over a bump and it seems to be happening more and more frequently.
Does anyone know what this problem could be and what is the cheapest way to fix it?
Thank you

Wont Start
My daughter recently purchased a used i30.
She says that at times (not often) it is hard to start and lacks power for a while and then comes good. She says that there does not seem to be a pattern to this problem and it doesn't happen often.
She took it to a mechanic (NOT a Hyundai workshop) and when she explained the problem he told her (my daughter's words) that he thinks it is a problem with the fuel rail and/or fuel pressure regulator and that it would cost about $500 to fix. I am not sure if she should pay out that sort of money unless she is assured that his diagnosis is correct. I know that there are many sensors in the engine such as the MAP, throttle position etc which could cause this problem.

Has anyone had t...
