Been back to dealers today who have adjusted rear brakes?? - problem still as bad as ever.One person there tried to tell me all i10's made this noise and it was a characteristic of the model! anyone any ideas prior to my next visit.

welcome to the forums

the noise you have indicated is almost certain to be the clutch release bearing, its nothing to worry about but it should not be there, the noise may wear off by itself but the only cure is to fit a new one and that means pulling the gearbox out. what your dealer has done and is telling you is utter xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Can you tell where the screeching is coming from i.e. the back or front of the car?

Many i10's suffer from the rear brakes squeaking at low speeds - see http://www.hyundai-forums.com/t45916-squeak.htm

Slightly off subject, is the standard 'oh they all do that sir' response from the dealer specific to the Hyundai dealers, or do other motor manufacturers also use it. My i10 is the first car I have ever had from new, and I have had the same response, along with many other i10 owners and different dealerships.

It doesn't exactly fill a person with confidence with their dealer when you know they are going to fob you off at every given opportunity,

Hi Rob,
I have purchased many new cars from different manufacturers over the years and have only ever had this annoying response from my Hyundai dealer. I sometimes wonder if they are told to give this reply as standard during the warranty period in the hope you will go away. I guess there is not much profit in warranty work.

Found this post as when I release my clucth there is a squeel type noise. This is with 33 miles on clock and 0 degrees outside after a night of minus 6 so hoping just the cold.

I checked today on drive with engine running and released clutch, the longer it held in for the longer the squeel goes on for!

But if I hold the wire coming of the battery holding the cable it stops...is this just some weird vibration as holding said wire stops the squeel?

Thanks

I had a 2011 i10 as a loan car last week. It also made a screeching noise, a mechanic friend had a listen and diagnosed the clutch release bearing. Not sure what the outcome was for the dealer as I just returned the car and requested an alternative!!
Just for the record I only had a loan car as my own i10 (2011) was in having the clutch replaced, not bad for 9500 miles from new!!

Hornet...I've been following your posts re. your new i10.

May I suggest (provided the moderator thinks it an acceptable idea) that you start a clearly titled thread (say for example...Hornet's new i10 and all the questions I have about it")...and start again from scratch detailing every aspect of the car about which you'd like to get responses and outlining your purchase and driving experiences and confirming, as requested by fellow poster 'Twelve', whether the car was pre registered or brand new with you as the first registered...and including the mileage on the car on collection.

Re. the clutch...As already suggested, I would have said with almost total certainty (having had it and heard it many times over the past 40 odd years that the noise you describe is the clutch release bearing. I'd disagree with the above post which suggested that it wasn't anything to worry about. IF it IS the bearing squealing then any technician (or mechanic, as they used to be called) will assert that brand new C R Bearings DON'T squeal. Just to be sure - a defective bearing would squeal when the pedal is pressed down (clutch disengaged) and will stop squealing when the pedal is released (clutch engaged). HOWEVER another poster here has reported that his clutch cable was maladjusted to the point where the bearing was still engaged (ie. spinning) even with the pedal fully up, and the bearing was sqealing all the time...this was because the cable didn't allow the bearing to be free of the rest of the operating mechanism....ordinarily you wouldn't be able to know that the bearing was still spinning like this as you wouldn't be able to hear it - BUT if the bearing is squealing, as it was in that particular case, the fact that the cable needed adjustment became apparent i.e. due to the noisy bearing. Bearings are normally silent and usually last the life of the clutch plate and assembly.

It does seem that clutches (and to a lesser extent) gearboxes are a "talking point" and you just seem to have joined the conversation. Welcome!


Re. Headlights misting...it's not uncommon. Mine does it - my Yeti does it...some do it some don't do it...practically speaking you won't get rid of it and it dries out in the warm weather.

Oldstan cheers for advice, will start new post if OK'd.

My clutch noise only happens upon starting the car, it ceases and is noise free after a few miles, 10 mins driving.

From cold the noise (chirping) only starts after pressing the clutch down and releasing it, upon release of pedal it chirps for about 10 seconds. It then happens again if I press and release clutch.

Like I said with car stationery on drive, if someone else presses and releases peddle I can stop the chirp by holding the cable up by the battery, I just touch it and the chirp stops as if it is a vibration travelling along the cable.

Its strange the chirp ceases as soon as car warmed up.

So any ideas or still think bearing?

Thanks

I know nothing, Hornet, but the act of grasping and tweaking the actual cable within the engine compartment and stopping the noise leans, in my view, away from the bearing as the bearing is either screeching - or it isn't given that it's tucked securely within the housing and isn't likely to be affected by moving the cable...UNLESS... WITH THE PEDAL UP....by moving the cable, the cable tension is being released a fraction and this tiny movement within the cable is allowing the bearing to free off and stop spinning and screeching - BUT this only applies in the case of the pedal being released (UP). If you can stop the noise by handling/tweaking the cable WITH THE CLUTCH PEDAL DOWN then it's NOT the bearing.

I'm not saying this well...but will repeat... if it screeches with the pedal down you wouldn't be able to stop the noise by handling the cable because the bearing is fully engaged and spinning (and screeching) and no amount of tweaking the cable would stop it...but if you can stop the noise by tweaking the cable when the pedal's UP, then it could easily be the bearing by virtue of my theory that you're just fractionally releasing the tension, and allowing the bearing to stop spinning (and hence stop screeching).

Obviously the dealer must be consulted... but try to get a local, well versed friend/acquaintance to help you before you go as most old timers will have heard it before.

I again ask...is it new and reg. in your name as the first owner or pre reg. in the dealers name? What is the mileage?

Oldstan thanks for reply. Its a chirping noise and yes it starts as soon as peddle is up and lasts about 10 seconds. Like I said it stops as soon as car warmed up...does that mean anything? My dealer is about 30 mins drive away so the noise won't be there when I get there! Noise stops just by holding cable I don't pull it I just hold between finger an thumb.

It is a pre reg, dealer has loads of them when I collected it it had 8 miles on clock.

I presume this chirping noise will either get worse or stop, would be more worried if it didn't dissapear after 10 misn driving...or is that a bad sign too?
