I have had so many problems with my handbrake on my I30 that I decided to fit new rear calipers myself and stripped down the old one to see how it works. -
i have put a brief video on You tube for anyone interested in how it works.
BTW if your handbrake does stick in an emergency you can release it with a 12mm spanner   :lol:

Be kind.

Wont Start
Hello hope you are well
I have a 2009 manual petrol i30

During lockdown the car was sitting for a few weeks and it seemed run out of battery. After successfully jumping the car and charging the battery (both with a looong drive and an overnight on a battery charger) now she wont start at all just turning over slowly.

The lights inside work as do the headlights so im guessing that the battery has charged. On the dash the esp off light is illuminated as is one of a car with a key inside.

Any help to get the car starting again would be amazing.

Thabk you

Door Locking
Started a couple of weeks ago and is intermittant. Some days no issues.
Today, I went to car in garage, when it sensed the remote it started unlocking/locking doors by itself, lights flashing and mirror folding unfolding, when I walked away it stopped. ( I had not even touched the keyfob or the unlock button on door handle.)
I can get in when the unlock activates if I am quick.  As soon as I sit and close the door it locks all doors but will start up ok
Driving is no problem.
Parked and turned off engine, all doors unlocked automatically but I could hear a faint tone which stopped when I pressed the inside door lock button, as soon as I pressed the unlock button whilst still sitting in car, the tone started again.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone would have any advice or suggestions for me as I am trying to replace a rear wheel bearing hub assembly on my 1.4 petrol 2010.
I've gotten as far as removing the caliper, brake disc and removed the 4 bolts on the back. I've fought against the rust holding the hub and backplate to the knuckle (with some heavy persuasion) but I can't seem to separate the backplate (with the handbrake hardware on it) from the actual hub. Seems rust welded.
I've got hold of some penetrating fluid that I will try out and it's quite awkward trying to smack it out the way it is without bending the backplate - I can't help but feel like I'm missing something. Do I remove the handbrake hardware for easy access a...

Hi everyone. Is there anybody that can help me with which type of coolant I should use ? My i30 is 1.6 petrol 2013 and I am in the UK. My car has the Original Factory fill coolant still in it, (very low miles 18,000) which is Green (not neon green). Like many people have posted all it says in the handbook is to use ethylene glycol, but ethylene glycol can be IAT, OAT, or HOAT and I know that some of these really shouldn't be mixed. I called Hyundai but they couldn't even tell me me what the anti corrosion base is from the factory fill, and that they do not even sell Hyundai branded coolant. They suggested that I call a dealer which opened another can of worms. I was told to do the initial change at 60000 miles or 6 years then 60000 miles th...

Just wanted toa provide a positive testimonial regarding the 2010 CRDi i30 I have had. Very impressive and for the amount of KMs that it has stood the test of time and distance. Nothing wrong with it, infact im passing it down to a uni student.

What I had to replace besides the consumable items :- Alternator (due to a faulty regulator that kept blowing bulbs),... sway bar links but that might be a consumable maybe and thats it!.. nothing else. Just regular service. Another annoying thing was a low speed creak when going over bumps which was also a known nuisance.

New car is a Hyundai Tuscon 2.0L CRDi 2018 Active - I hope i get a good run too from that if not im buying another i30 diesel for sure... or maybe the direc...

Hi I have an 2010 i30 FD 2.0 w. automatic 4 speed gearbox. Yesterday the car started "jerking" and it will no longer go into 4th gear. Every now and then it jerks trying to go into 4th gear. Manually putting it in 3rd gear seems to fix it. Been reading up a little and it seems like gearbox issues is pretty common with the i30 FD.

I'm the second owner of this car and I had a look at the previous owner service/repair papers that came with the car and in Dec 2015 at ~61000 km the car had issues changing gears smoothly and it says "Auto trans valve body internal failure" and they replaced "BODY ASSY-ATA VALVE" all up ~$2900 job.

My car has now done 150000 km. Is it likely to be the same problem now again, valve body failur...

Hi all,

I have an 09 SX i30. Wanted to confirm what the correct wheel nut torque is when changing wheels.

They are 195/65/R15 wheels.

I've looked in the manual and it says 9~11 kg.m. However not quite sure what torque setting to set my torque wrench to? Is it 100nm?
