Hi, first post for me, and i'm sorry to revive an old thread.
I bought my i40 from a dealer (not main) in August, now just 8k miles later and both my rear calipers require replacement.
The garage found one side binding which prompted a change of pads, that led to discovering a worn disc (as a result of the binding). Then, on trying to wind back the caliper on the other side, discovered it was corroded and wouldn't wind all the way back. The pads on the other side were nearly new, so i suspect the selling dealer had done them before selling the car to me.
I think this has all resulted from damage caused during a previous brake pad change and the piston on the caliper being wound back incorrectly. One of the rubber seals on the caliper was missing completely.
Anyway, all fun stuff. Just wanted to vent and let people know to make sure they are getting their brakes done by someone who knows how to do it properly on this car.
Sussed it!, use a smooth blade (I used a normal dinner knife) and insert it at the top outside corner of the indicator and cover, it should open a gap which can have another similar blade inserted so you can work around the joint, eventually it’ll ‘pop’ apart.
its still a pain to get the indicator out but with a bit of careful ‘brute force’ it can be weedled out and the new one inserted similarly
the cover then just clips back together
I’ve had this issue appear too. The cornering bulbs also no longer work and the “guiding lines” that appear on the reverse camera no longer move when I turn the wheel.
I reckon a sensor somewhere is no longer playing but low and behold I’m just outside my warranty!
Hi all, I’m new to this forum and am hoping for some help, I need to replace my wing mirror indicator, I have the mirror glass and motor removed, I can’t see how the painted plastic casing is removed, I have it loose but that’s it!
thanks in anticipation
Hi, I have just bought a ix35 2010 (60 plate) last week in great condition just one problem same as your neighbour, reverse camera does not work.
I knew it wasn't working when I bought it so not been conned.
I have heard that over time water gets into the camera and it pack in.
was wondering if its easy to get to the camera and is there a fix without having to buy a new camera.
any help would be appreciated.
thanks in advance
