Brake Pads
Hi all, I’m after seeing if anyone else has had the same problem I’m having with my 2010 i30 1.6 crdi.
When my car is cold as I use the brakes even a touch, they stick for a few seconds, the pedal doesn’t return properly and the brake lights stay on. After a few seconds they release. When the car is up to temperature it doesn’t happen. I have bled the brakes and replaced the fluid, I have also had the vacuum pump replaced (€360🤬 after this being diagnosed by a mechanic).
It’s still happening though. Any ideas or has anyone else had the same problem ?
Thanks, Lee

Dash Cam
We are looking to purchase the best front and rear dashcams for our recently purchased I30 Hatch. We would prefer to have them installed by our Hyundai dealership. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! We are in Australia

Hi All,

Brand new here as I've just joined the i30 Club, having bought my first vehicle a few days prior to Christmas.
I drove my 2021 Baseline i30 for about 4hrs home from picking it up from the dealership & found the stock sound system to sound GOOD but couldn't help but feel it could sound better with some tweaked settings.
I believe it is a six-speaker set-up, with one in each door & two tweeters in the dash.
I played with some of the settings but can't quite nail the sound. At default, the audio sounds very "front" heavy, with most of the audio (mainly lyrics) sounding like it's coming from the front of the dash.

Any & all help with this would be MAJORLY appreciated. I look forward to hearing from y...

About 7 years I have had my DPF emptied. But this year the emission tests have gotten stricter, and my car failed the test. So I had no choice but to have one installed again.  This was a month ago.

The car has also been chiptuned by myself. When the DPF had been removed the shop that did that also made some modifications.  I have kept all previous versions of the software, including the original.

So recently I thought I could put back the original software because there was no need anymore to "write away the dpf". But now I'm getting error P2002, and the car now goes into limp mode.
I googled of course, and read that it might have to do with a damaged DPF, but mine is brand new. So what could it be?

Tail Gate
HI all,
has anyone one else experienced a failure in the tail gate ?
My I30 2012 Gd model.
Both using the button on the inside of the armrest or the button on the tailgate.
it makes its normal mechanical noise of unlocking but then it does not open.
I was able to crawl into the boot space from the back seat,  there is a hidden switch that should open the boot from the inside. it too fails to open the boot.

Any suggestions

Thank you in advance.

Problems & Issues

UK 2018 i30 base model.

Due to heavy rainfall recently in uk, the passenger footwell and rear passenger footwell were wet through, with insulation sponges under carpet very wet as well. Checked all seals, everything seems okay.

Finally found (what we think is) the source of the problem. After removing wipers and taking off the cowl top, we could see mess blocking the drainage grates. On top of that, the passenger side air intake doesn't have any cover? The drivers side has a red cover bolted on, whereas the passenger's is exposed with holes for a cover but nothing attached. Through this hole leads directly to the top of the cabin air filter (above passenger footwell).

Doe anybody know if ther...

Hello guys, owner of a 2017 i30 diesel 1600 110hp.
I have the car for 2 months now, and with the first cold weather (I don't know if this matters), car started to buzzing(glass sound) at 1000-1400 rpm when I accelerate or leave the pedal.

I have read similar posts here, but the are a lot of noises so I don't know what to look first.
Any help would be appreciated m8s

Check Engine Light
I’ve been having a few issues lately with my i30. First being my engine would randomly stall but when it started back up it was fine. As it was an intermittent fault, it wouldn’t come up on the scanner. Finally replaced the crankshaft sensor and that fixed the issue.

Fast forward a month to today, I was driving to work and my check engine light came on. There was no difference to performance so I drove to work and then drove home (2 hours round trip). When I got home, I turned the car off and then on again. The car felt shaky for around a minute and the engine light remained on?

The spark plugs have only just been replaced as well (roughly 2 months ago). I do have a mechanic coming to look later

Android Auto
Can I upgrade a 2017 i30 (third gen/PD) head unit without CarPlay to the bigger 8" variant with Apple CarPlay?

I think the existing one is around 5", but without CarPlay, and I would really really love that.

I see on Youtube that others replace the head unit (even to the newest 10"+ unit from N-line), but cannot find enough details, other that the physical part seems to be plug and play between the head unit variants (agree?). But is there any code(s) needed or other setup requirements?

And a recommended place/way to buy a unit?

Would be very happy if it's possible, and eager to give it a go, with proper instructions.

Alloy Wheel
I bought steel rims for my i30 with 15" tires. I double-checked the sizes everywhere I could to ensure a perfect fit. I used the oponeo.pl (online Polish good shop) configurator and consulted the Hyundai instruction manual that came with the car.

Everything seemed to match perfectly. For 15" tires for i30 2023 1.0 T-GDI , they were supposed to be 6.0Jx15", with a 5x114.3 bolt pattern, a 67.1mm center bore, and an ET of 46.

I purchased them on Allegro (Polish online shop), and they were described as "Hyundai OE" (Original Equipment).

I thought I couldn't have done more to ensure the right rims. I bought winter tires separately and had them mounted and balanced.

Now, I'm swapping the wheels. I remov...
