G'day everyone,

My i30 has developed an ugly rattle on cold start (165k kms, full service history), I'm suspecting a dead timing chain tensioner but obviously not quite sure. Just did a service 3,000kms ago with oem oil and filter. Does anyone have a manual that describes the replacement of the tensioner? Does the whole timing chain cover need to come off? On my trusty old BMW M60 V8 the timing chain tensioner replacement took a 15 minutes, so I thought on this little pocket engine it can't be too much of a hassle? I will record a video of a cold start shortly for comparison.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi guys,
I have a Hyundi I30 1.6 crdi Comfort+Navi from March 2018.
It has the original battery.
It seems that the battery is in need to be replaced.
Is there any special procedures in the replacement because of the start&stop sistem and because of the electronic part if the car? Or it can be changed like a regular battery?
Any help will be welcome.
Best regards

Problems & Issues
G'day, I have an i30 Auto GD D251E 08/2013~03/2017 PETROL 1.8 litre. I just recently replaced my rotors and brake pads. I returned the brake calipers back in with opening the break fluid cap instead of bleading the brakes. Most people on YouTube recommended doing this way. After a little while the traction control light came on and the car went into limp mode. I checked it again a bit later and everything was good again. It came on and off a few times then the engine light came on a couple of times. Every time I drove the car every was good but after a few minutes the traction and engine lights would come on. I checked the brake fluid reservoir and it had risen to the top and took some out. Now sometimes the engine light is on without the t...

I bought a second hand 2012 i30 last year, 180km on the clock. I have a very annoying issue at the moment. it only starts on longer drives.... after about 15 mins of driving at spreed, a resonating noise starts, seems to come from the front. I've linked the sound file.
Recent work to try resolve the issue, 4 new hankook tyes, all balanced, bent tie rods were replaced and bearings done too.

The noise is not all the time, it comes and goes every few minutes. Its pretty loud and alarming for any passengers. In the clip, when the noise drops off that is me touching the brakes.... could it be a loose brake calliper or something like that? Really weird that for the first 15 to 20 mins of driving there is no noise. Any help much ap...

Door Locking
Having some issues with passanger door and tailgate. Wont lock. Can I get access to wiring diagrams on here somewhere. Also are KIA and Hyundai locks interchangable? Got a secondhand lock but the connectors are different ,as are the number and colours of the wires. TIA

I'm kinda scared of getting ripped off here, as these things cost a fair bit, considering it's just a piece of plastic and some clips.

I went to Hyundai, Adelaide, they basically said they have 1 option available and it's in Sydney and it's probably Clear. Quite surprised by that actually, thanks anyway, Hyundai.

So, I've shopped around, I can only find 1 smoke bonnet protector for my car, and I don't think it's the genuine Hyundai part. See ebay listing.

Does anyone have any ideas on this,

We changed the wheels on My lads 2016 i30 to wheels from a Kona as he needed tyres, both sets of wheels have 433mhz tpms sensors in and I have read the codes from the new wheels and input them into the ECU by obd relearn using an autel its600 tool.

But the light keeps coming back on with an auto relearn failure and RF channel failure on all channels, all sensors are confirmed as stored in the ECU.

Does anyone know if I need the exact sensors of should Kona ones work?

Recently purchased an i30. One of the LED strip lights wasnt illuminating so I got it fixed as still under 3 month warranty. However, me and the garage are unsure if these are actually DRLs or just side lights., as they come on when I turn the lever to sidelights / dip but dont come on otherwise. The manual is useless as its for many different specs (as always these days ! ), although it says if DRLs they should come on if the light switch is set to off, and the car is started.

Appreciate any help , as the garage have gone quiet on me .

My i30 is a 67 plate S 1.0 T-GDi 120PS 5d

Hello people

Greetings from Argentina

Maybe you can give me a hand, a while ago the valve on one of the wheels broke, which is attached to the sensor module for the TPMS.
The module is 52933-2L000 which is, at least here in Argentina, unavailable.

I got and installed an alternative, the issue is that the system, while running without one, its turning off.
The TPMS light stays always on.

I tried removing the battery, some guides talk about the tpms button but the mk1 doesn't have it.
I also connected the obd2 with the torque android program but it does not show a failure to delete.

Any idea how to reset this module?

or possibly how to disable the dashboard ligh...

Gear Stick Auto
I've just started getting a weird issue with my 2012 CRDi auto. After I put it in park and then pressing the start button to turn it off, it comes up on the display with "shift to P" as if i've left it in gear. Yet just before turning it off, the dash gear indicator shows it in P.

So now the radio doesnt actually turn off, I cannot lock it and it beeps when i leave saying that the keys' not in the car.

I took a video showing whats happening: https://youtube.com/shorts/mOA5i-BdTI8

It might be similar to :link: My car wont turn off properly though that doesnt mention the P shifter is...
