Door Locking
Hi all, we have a 2010 i30 with the dreaded grinding noise from the front passenger door lock, only when we lock it.
I believe it's a door lock actuator I need but hyundai want over 500 to fix it when they can get the part, apparently they are on back order with no idea of when they will get one in.
Can't find one anywhere, does anyone know somewhere who may have one in?
I have seen an actuator repair kit which basically looks like a single toothed wheel, but can't find any guides on if this will work or how to repair it? Many thanks for any help

Glow Plug
 :exclaim: Please help.

I have 2 glow plugs stuck in a Hyundai i30 1.6 crdi 2011. I have tried almost everything to get them out and I know now I have to remove the Head off the engine. Would someone be kind enough to provide me with a step-by-step guide as to how I can remove the head and what nuts require which torque settings? I am a complete novice so please feel free to treat me like a dummy and explain every little thing. Also, any additional tips that you think may help are most welcome.

Loving this forum already.

i30 in the news
They kind of hint that the Cerato GT is better value, but we've had feedback from a recent N-line buyer who tested them back to back that several things like the Automated cruise and the suspension tune are much better in the i30.

Door Handle (internal)
Hi all -
I needed to open up my Driver (RHS) door panelling etc - because a clip had broke that wind's the window up and down - glass had therefore fallen (not broken - thankfully) and I needed to replace -
All I needed was the clip but everyone tried to sell the the whole panel for $180 to $350 just for the parts - all I needed was a clip and wire - found a website that sells these components as a repair kit for $70 - 5minutes and its all fitted - go to replace the panel and therefore needed to put the door handle back on - but I'm having issues.
Essentially the door latch wont click into place - there is a latch inside (does this need to be retracted so I can slide the door latch on - then just push and click the barrel ...

Hi everyone,
Newby here seeking some help please.  We have a 2010 1.6l petrol manual i30 that we have owned from new and has served us faithfully and well.  However about 3 weeks ago it started stalling intermittently when stopped in neutral or with the clutch depressed.  We took it to the dealership mechanic who said we needed a new clutch (ouch!) which we accepted and got the work completed.  However, during the 2nd drive after getting the car back, the same problem arose.  We took it back again, but they can't replicate the problem.  The car will restart after it has stalled but the ESP light will come on, the revs will be right down and it doesn't drive right.  We stop the engine and restart it and all returns to normal.  We are no...

Hi guys, hopefully one of you could help me if possible!  :disapp: :blubber:

I have a 2011 i30 1.6 petrol. G4FC

Basically, while driving the alternator mounting bolt keeps sheering. It is definitely tensioned correctly and I have a new belt.

So today I decided to strip the system after it snapped again for the 15th odd time. I removed the tensioner and the tensioner bracket. Removed the belt.

Only the alternator was left in situ by the lower mounting bolt.

Though this time I noticed the alternator had a lot of play. Even when bolted in and torque up. So I removed the alternator. I have attached a picture.

When I removed the alternator I noticed a hook off the alumini...

just bought a second hand premium for an great price, but has a few little cosmetic issues that I'm planning to address (If it makes $ sense)
leather steering wheel has some big cracks, little chunks missing.
the 1st owner was a lady with long fingernails  haha, i wouldn't be surprised if that helped.

found this kit, but not sure of the quality, though it has some good reviews.

I have a diesel i30 Crd 2010 model.

I replaced the steering dampener a few days ago, whew It was a quite a job on my own.
Anyway Its in and the steering wheel is super smooth again, no clonk clonk noise.

i took it for a test drive that night, the ESP light was on and pressing the ESP swith did buggerall.

When I got to a mates house ,after a coffee I started the car and the ESP light was off !!.

But alas today I start the car and ESP is on again and now red EPS is on.

The steering is still perfect..

Do I need to go to Hyundai and get them to reset the warning lights via the VAG computer !!

Any Ideas..

I made sure the spline went back on exactly as it...
