I'm not sure why this should be a problem at all,
I believe the motors are inside the headlamp units.

One car = 2 x headlamps and it appears the majority of i10s have the problem. That's a lot of headlamps which dont come cheap. Add to that fitting ( have you tried to fit a bulb ! ), that's a lot of dealers blocked up with i10 warranty work = An expensive fix for Hyundai.

The resistive swtich is fairly passive and unless there is current leak through the resistor network then its very doubtful the switch ever had an issue. I've also been told that switch is used on other models without issue. So its back to the headlamps and ( possibly ) there internal motors. All the diagrams shown on the Hyundai GSW site dont show much detail regarding the headlamp levelling motors.

I think there is more chance gold plated self fixing clutch units being fitted then the above work being carried out .

Oh yes it's undoubtedly quite a big job if all the above could be involved, but how many people would actually return them for said work if they didn't issue a full recall? I personally don't think many so costs wouldn't be that high surely.

It all depends on how annoying it becomes.

They have been aware of the issue for well over 14 months. Thats a long time to sort a 'switch' out. Apply that level of concern over a clutch and......well the rest is history.

As one of the (brave?!) i10 'early-adopters' I had the headlamp 'adjusters' replaced some time back last year by my dealer.

It went away for a few weeks..but started to reoccur a few weeks later, but not as frequently.

It happens about once/twice a day for few (annoying) seconds. I now am having to just live with it....and wait until a fix is announced?!

Just do what Mr Ed says in post 21, turn the height adjuster from 0 and you'll never hear the noise again

Both my I10's still have the fault regardless of where the switch is positioned. Only a few people have appeared to cure the noise by keeping the switch in that position. Even then thats not a cure. Many people use that switch for its indended purpose. I doubt all those with a Style would keep the sunroof shut if that had a faulty motor.


Why the **** should you let Hyundai and there poxy sub-standard service off the hook by NOT using the cars funtions. Take the car back and demand a fix.

Currently there is [b]no fix. Read my above post regarding headlamp motors and the cost to repair; the switch is a red herring. It's a 10 pence item with a passive resistor array inside.

It's believed the fault is in the motors and the cost ( assuming everyone demanded the fix be carried out ) would be a major setback to Hyundai. The labour alone would prevent the fitters carrying out their normal work for several weeks.

The fault has been present since the first i10 rolled of the production line. So two years to fix a switch ? Nah ! They know what's causing the problem, but are hoping people wont bother asking for a solution ( which is exactly what's happening ).

But there could be trouble ahead, it's now come to light that another person received a rectification notice from the Police for driving their i10 with faulty headlamps ( that's makes two recorded events so far ). Hence why some Hyundai dealers are disconnecting the headlamp motors . Now if they disconnect the Aircon or Electric windows because they were faulty, how would you react ?

You put two large people in the back of an i10 with the headlamps set on the '0' setting and you will light up the moon and blind every other bugger driving towards you.

But driving down a country lane with the headlamp beam going up and down at random is bloody dangerous. I've nearly had one person pull out on me because they thought I was flashing them to proceed !

I still think there is a fault with the switch. I can now get both headlight motors to 'whirr' simply by tapping the dash adjacent to the switch. The dealer (now closed) told me that the headlight motor problem usually only affected one headlight so perhaps there are two faults. Now that the problem is easily demonstrated I will ask for it to be fixed at the first service but from the experience of others I am not confident it will be.

I did try to move the switch to '1' or '2' from '0' and the problem still is there (with a garage 'fix' last year)

As mentioned, less frequent, but several times a week for a very long time now!
