Hi and :00000732: to the forums.Hola
Yo tengo ese problema y parece que es el retén de la transmisión derecha ( es la larga)
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.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.
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.Does that mean they haven,t seen THIS problem before
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)also are you saying you wish you had bought an i30 now?
This seems to be a know issue for i10 and i20. Cause: to much oil put in the gearbox at the factory.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!
