  2. What engine oil ?

    Loads of choice concerning this spec oil and cheaper , whether approved or not , a spec is a spec and quality should be the same . Equivalent to the dual C3 & C2 of Mobil 1 ESP Formula https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Granville-Hypalube-EVO-Fully-Synthetic-5W-30-Engine-Oil-Additive-Low-SAPS-5-Ltr/122784580291?epid=0&hash=item1c968802c3:g:58EAAOSwVlVZ-HXT Quantum is VW owned and approved and now made by Fuchs ( was Castrol ) https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Quantum-Longlife-5W-30-Fully-Synthetic-Engine-Oil-5-Litre-Bottle/222691140295?epid=1705379933&hash=item33d96d22c7:g:dbIAAOSwRZBZyjGh

  6. Clutch problem, any thoughts?

    When my engine was in bits under warranty, I had the clutch changed and they didn’t charge me labour. Dealer price for clutch kit was £196 inc vat. £2.5k is madness. I can get a gearbox removed, rebuilt and refitted in a day for my Vivaro for £600. Done in a day by a gearbox specialist. A clutch is going to be far less hassle
  7. Clutch problem, any thoughts?

    Don’t know if yours is an automatic, Should give you an idea. Good luck with it . https://www.rexbo.eu/hyundai/i40-cw-vf-11/1-7-crdi-43156/repair-kit-clutch-complete-100051
  8. Hi all - first time posting, but have been watching since I got my i40 tourer and have picked up plenty from the collective wisdom. The car is a 2014 1.7 blue drive tourer, bought for size, saftey and reliability to ferry kids around mostly. Last night very heavy vibration on idle and felt like broken washing machine on driving - fly wheel I guess, as did the AA chap. Just been on 'phone to Hyundai dealership where it was towed - if it is clutch, they say, as we are now on 63,000 miles and the limit for warranty on that item is 60,000 miles it will be down to me - quick tot up gave figure at around 2.5k for clutch, flywheel and labour. Not happy at all, to say the least...I think they got the message...left it by saying let's get to the bottom of the problem, see what it is, see what the book says about who is liable and see if we can come to some agreement, that was my side at least, they simply kept saying 'well, it is over 60,000 miles....' I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience, thoughts, wisdom on that situation with this car with these dealerships (which are very varied, I know) - any ideas for strategy and inside info would be great before I get back on the 'phone with them - I am not really a car guy at all and just end up with steam coming out of my ears when trying to deal with this industry very often. Not a very interesting first post, but really in need of a steer here! Thanks!! Matt And, yes, the headlights are +++++++ dreadful too!
  9. Time to say goodbye!

    I've had my i40 tourer for about 5 years now (with it being about a year old when I bought it), but tomorrow I sell it on. I've mostly loved my i40, and whilst I'm not planning on getting another, I certainly wouldn't avoid them - would like to see a proper update to the model though. Only selling as I'm moving overseas - but it was probably about time anyway, with various faults & niggles started to creep in, but we've had a decent run! I may still lurk for a little while longer, at least until I've moved and settled on the new car (Hyundai's are pretty big where I'm going, so you never know - but I'd probably go for a Tuscon or something rather than the i40, what with the growing family) Had lots of help over the years from the regulars here, and hopefully been able to pass some of that help / experiences on to others too. Happy driving guys & gals.
  10. Yes - you're being fobbed off Many people have had the same issue - and to my knowledge, nobody has even had the issue acknowledged by Hyundai, much less actually had it resolved! You don't really notice it after a while - but it's always there - think of it as a 'letting go of the steering wheel prevention mechanism'
  11. Car Pulling to the left and other problems!

    My i40 consistently pulls to the left. I have had it realigned three times now and it has not solved the problem. The dealership are now saying that it is road camber causing this apparently "all modern cars are sensitive to road camber". Hmmm, that's strange because I have never seen this issue in other cars that I have driven. So it seems I am being fobbed off here. Has anyone actually had this issue sorted? What are your experiences?
  12. Millers without a doubt is top draw as they produce CFS Nanodrive NT+ , a very good ester racing oil . I'm confused as to why they've got two identical spec oils ? However the same high quality VW 504.00 507.00 can be had for less . https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Quantum-Longlife-5W-30-Fully-Synthetic-Engine-Oil-5-Litre-Bottle/222691140295?epid=1705379933&hash=item33d96d22c7:g:dbIAAOSwRZBZyjGh https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Granville-Hypalube-EVO-Fully-Synthetic-5W-30-Engine-Oil-Additive-Low-SAPS-5-Ltr/122784580291?epid=0&hash=item1c968802c3:g:58EAAOSwVlVZ-HXT
  13. Free delivery if you order your filter as well (over £40)
  14. I personally use the cheaper of the two as I change every 10K https://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-60250-millers-oils-xf-longlife-5w-30-high-performance-fully-synthetic.aspx https://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-88210-millers-oils-nanodrive-ee-longlife-5w-30-full-synthetic-engine-oil.aspx
  15. Depends what Castrol , GTX and Magnatec are a joke , the right 5W30 Edge is best but I'm not a fan of their 4L marketing , always cheaper 5L when you look . As for quality , a spec is spec whether manufacturer approved or not .
  16. If I remember rightly the socket I use for the of oil filter housing is an inch1/8 or an inch1/16
  17. Mann has always had an O ring with new oil filter. fuel filter is located directly behind battery and ecu , iv always removed both ,makes it a hole lot easier. also remove the bracket for the ecu , 2 x 10mm nuts I seem to remember. i managed to source an original brand new MAF from ebay for around £70. coincedently I was speaking with a fella who worked for an oil company yesterday and he told me Castrol is something you’ll find on the bottom of your shoe.
  18. No flush , it can dislodge any built up crap that can block the finer oil galleries. Technically you shouldn't need it as modern C3 oils especially those designed for long interval drains will have high dose of detergents . Filters , much and muchness but Mann is VAG OEM .
  19. Also, back in the distant times when I used to service my own engines, Wynn's Engine Flush was a thing - still worthy of running through nowadays?
  20. After much prompting by Westkent and Gazwould I've decided to give this a go myself. I'm gonna get me an oil vacuum sucky out thing!! EuroCarParts have 3 oil filters listed - I've heard of all of them and ther's like £1.50 difference between them Crosland, FRAM or MANN?? do they all come with the rubber O rings? can someone also pinpoint the location of the fuel filter and how to get at it? Think I might also replace the MAF - best place to get it from? I think I can do all the above (including getting the vacuum and top spec oil) for the same price as an independent major service - makes future services much cheaper as I'll have the vacuum already
  21. My car again after first health check will occasionally not open or close with fob. Then when opening car manually car alarm sounds. Service department can't find anything wrong as it won't do it all the time.
  22. One bleep on ignition

    Why does my Hyundai bleep once on ignition? This started after last visit to service department. Car is under a year old
  23. drivers side floor wet

    Can anyone help with any common issues with water soaking the drivers carpet ,is there a hose for the sunroof drain on the drivers side floor where it exits the car,or any major door seal issues7
  24. IX35 new front grille

    Hi, I spotted a new front grille for my IX35 which I liked the look of and it looked like an easy fit ! However I now have it and it has no fitting instructions and I'm stumped. It comes in 2 parts - the first is the flat tray that replaces the existing tray under the bonnet. Then the Grille which looks easy enough to fit but removing the old one looks more difficult. I just wondered if anyone else had ever replaced their IX35 grille and if they could give me any pointers. I'm hoping that I don't need to remove the whole bumper as that is where I would struggle and probably wouldn't attempt it. Any help is appreciated. Photo attached of the new grille.
