  2. Ok here goes 2012 premium tourer blue .rear sensors failed and replaced short engine replaced new head gaskget .new radiator .suspension mod rear clutch mod .been in and out for overfuelling .back in at the moment had independent oil test from miller oils came back 27% diluted with diesel .hyundai wouldnt accept this and had their own test done and came back ok .its currently back in for overfuelling and front sensor fail with leather wearing off steering wheel and rattle from dash with vibration to exhaust heat sheild. So been driving from aug to now with diluted engine oil ,i did inform dealership that on returning home from short engine refit that there was in fact no coolant and oil was an inch up the dipstick abd smelled of diesel but got fobbed off that all was ok .got a call a couple of weeks ago that my service and mot were due from dealership which was incorrect but asked when warranty was due to expire and was told 17th aoril this year. Booked car in and guess what ? It was due to exipre 2 days after being booked in on the 20th feb .would i buy another hyundai ??? Answer only if it was in warranty .now waiting to hear back from dealer as to what hyundai are going to do ,my concern is thst it will need another short motor and head after being run so long with diluted oil as well as maybe new egr and ecu and perhaps new manifold as per one of the other members cars. But its 2 days to warranty expries and im scepitcal if they will ratify such spending .sorry for such a long post but have been reading this forum for over a year now and only just got round to posting .when it comes back its going and im having audi a4 avant se cheers all happy motoring sam

  4. Yesterday
  5. Yeah I've had that, yet another parking sensor fault
  6. Try a few other Hyundai dealers in your area first. My Hyundai dealership charges £199 but I'm in North West
  7. Roof rails issue common as muck and replaced under warranty . You can go elsewhere but the oil and filters have to be stealer perfect otherwise they'll pick holes in the event of a claim . The way to do it is get Hyundai to price match .
  8. Hi All This is my first post. I have just inquired with a main dealer the cost of an i40s first service. they came back with a price of £312 which seems a bit steep. I have heard you can send your car to any vat registered dealer. has anyone had any experience of doing this and has it caused any problems later on with Hyundai? Also one of the roof rails is starting to lift. do you think this is covered by the warranty? many thanks
  9. Hi, I hope you can help me, I've brought a Tucson and I love her, she's even been named - Dotty. So about a 3 days after we brought Dotty (second hand) the check engine light came on with an error of P2002 back to the garage we went, they put some stuff in her tank and came back with an excuse of oh she's been sitting around for a while so muck has built up. Took her back and the light came back on. Took her back this time they replace the lower exhaust sensor, collected her and guess what the light came back on. Last week they replaced the lower sensor, collected her last Wednesday, drove her today and guess what the light is back on. She has also on occasion not wanted to drive in manual, so I have to manually change her gears in +/-. Everything I've been reading points to the Cat, I was just looking for some advice really as the garage are now saying if they can't fix it this time they will take her back, leaving us with no car. What are my rights what should I do, I love my Dotty.
  10. Thanks very much for your advice and information, much appreciated. Will try the link
  11. That's a strange one 'aldredd'. Obviously, you are talking about a different bleeping arrangement from your normal parking sensor alert and I can't say it's something I experienced with my i40. Perhaps one of the other frequent correspondents can shed some light on the matter but all I can think of is that you may have a faulty sensor. Maybe a bit of damp? Indalo
  12. You might wish to check in the settings to see which software the system is running. You can find out from the Navteq site how the latest system is numbered. The attached link is not necessarily what you want but it at least leads to the Navteq site and you can take it from there. The reason I mention it is that a car no longer within the dealer network may not have had the most recent software/firmware update. That being the case, any system glitches such as you describe might well be cured in the course of updating the system. I'm presuming here that Hyundai are still using Navteq for the satnav and hadn't moved to another supplier for 2014 cars. My 2016 Kia uses Tom Tom for example. https://www.navigation.com/is-bin/intershop.static/WFS/Navteq-Site/Navteq/en_GB/documents/Hyundai/Hyundai Instructions English.pdf Indalo
  13. Max to min in 8 weeks???? That's not good aldredd, where do you wonder it goes to?. you wanna be changing your oil very frequently, I presume your oil level rises in that 8 weeks.
  14. Sure needs it , mega flat spot low down. Egr off and gut dpf for best results .
  15. Last week
  16. Has anyone had their Hyundai i40 Remapped??
  17. Thanks, will give that a go - not a lot to lose!
  18. Interesting - mine does get through quite a bit of coolant, and was worried I had the same issue - and left it too late to get it sorted under warranty. That said, mine doesn't sounds as bad as that - mine will go from max to min level over about 8 weeks or so, so I just keep mine topped up
  19. Ok, I've had my i40 about 3 1/2 years, but this is the first time I've come across this - and it's happened a few time in the last few days. Usually when doing some form of parking manoeuvre, I'm getting a rapid bleeping sound - 3 sets of double beeps I think. Sometimes the proximity indicators on the dash appear, but not sure if that's just my normal proximity warning. Is this an issue beginning to manifest, or something else (did wonder if it was some sort of collision avoidance system I didn't know I had, as I was parking pretty fast, but haven't been able to replicate it consistently - and found no reference to the car having this of course!)
  20. Do a factory reset
  21. Yep, I go through at least one parking sensor every service as I can't afford to keep taking the vehicle off the road every time the toyRus parking sensors fail
  22. Hello, Am new to this but hope someone can help. Bought a 64 plate i40 tourer, not from a Hyundai dealer. I love the car but Satnav tells me I'm based in Norway, though I live in UK! There are lots of UK addresses in the Address Book but I cant get it to change to my UK starting position so can't display the clock either. Does anyone know what I have to do to get it to change?
  23. If you get a chance please post some photos up, would love to take a look.
  24. The rear o/s disc is definitely scored and I'd say in need of replacement. I've contacted my local garage and he has all the up to date diagnostic gubbens required for the job. Just need to get the price from him now for the replacement.
  25. I'd call that a result Garry! I'm not at all surprised that there was a fault with the clutch, rather than friction plate wear which would be most unusual at that mileage. That meant the difference between warranty work and the emptying of your wallet! As for the brakes, I think you're quite right to have them done elsewhere. As 'aabs' and 'Westkent' have indicated, brake pad replacement isn't beyond the competence of a decent non-franchised repairer or indeed anyone reasonably familiar with car maintenance DIY. While the rear pads could be in need of replacement, the actual discs are probably fine. Rear brakes only provide a small proportion of the job of bringing a vehicle to a halt, the fronts doing the lion's share. If it were me, unless the rear discs prove to be either badly worn, (measurable and usually obvious to the naked eye and a fingernail test), or warped, (unusual), which is difficult to see but can be measured on a clock gauge, I'd simply replace the pads. In the course of rear brake examination, the cause of a sticking handbrake should come to light. Given that you have been saved the clutch replacement costs, I'd be inclined to let your favoured non-Hyundai repairer check out the handbrake and pads. Indalo
  26. My interior light is not going off even though all doors are closed. It's the front light, the back passenger is fine. I've tried the switch but nothing is happening. Please help!
  27. Pleased for you Gary - seems like it's gone as well as could be expected. Nice one!
