I've got a slight oil leak where the gearbox joins the bell housing, so I'm assuming it's leaking gearbox oil. Going to book it in with the dealer. Anyone else had a similar problem?

if the oil leak is in fact coming from the join it can only be leaking from two possible places, 1 the front seal on the gearbox were it would be leaking gear oil or 2 much more likely the rear crankshaft oil seal were it would be leaking engine oil. in any case you will need to make use of your warranty to get this issue fixed

Thanks for the advice Montego :liebe011:

Dealer had a quick look today, & agreed it's most likely the seal between the gearbox & bell housing (is this the front seal?), probably not enough sealant applied on the mating faces. Not a common problem, they've seen only one before. Car booked in, 2 day job, I'll post back when complete.

Hola

Yo tengo ese problema y parece que es el retén de la transmisión derecha ( es la larga)
Hi and :00000732: to the forums.

A quick Google translation of your post is:-

"Hello

I have that problem and it seems that is the catch of the transmission right (eventually)"

I think you should let your dealer/mechanic take a look and see what they advise.

Well I had the above work carried out, next day oil still leaking. Took it back & the garage added UV dye to the gearbox oil. After taking it back again they diagnosed it to be the driveshaft oil seal. Again I'll update when complete.
I did have an I30 as a courtesy car, shame the car was only in for 2 days!

Does that mean they haven,t seen THIS problem before
I'm not sure, usually the forman mechanic looks over the car with me present but I had to leave it with them on this occasion. He did say last time that on other hyundai's they had had a few leaking at the gearbox to bellhousing seal, & they had had some cracked castings but not on i20's.

also are you saying you wish you had bought an i30 now?
Still happy with the i20, I think I chose correctly, inbetween the i10 & the i30. I really liked the i30, but couldn't justify stretching my budget that far, even though it was only another 1.7K on scrappage at the time (between a i20 classic & i30 comfort at £8K)

This seems to be a know issue for i10 and i20. Cause: to much oil put in the gearbox at the factory.

gearbox oil leak - clutch slipping

After 49000 miles and 6 years of use my clutch started slipping. Turns out that gearbox oil leaking into the clutch compartment is responsible. Apparently a common thing.
