That's not good is it, don't think gearbox or clutch is faulty guessing more like clutch cylinder or along them lines. Is going to garage tomorrow but was hoping if anybody could shed some light

typical week point on hyundai and kia after 60k, ive had one do this as low as 35k, best too trade it out whilst it's still a runner, as above if you replace the clutch the gearbox will not be far behind going too.

I had an i10 last year with an incredibly low clutch bite. Mechanic said don't worry about it, so I didn't. 

Sold it, never heard another word, think they're all like it.

Hi Tony, I have had this problem, near the clutch master cylinder there is a device called a clutch damper it is in the fluid line at the bottom of this unit there is a valve you need to remove this valve and fit a blank in it's place you can use a sump plug to do this although i'm not sure what one to use I just happen'd to have one laying around that did fit, then bleed the clutch and it should be good.

hyundais and chocolate clutches

who would believe

Wouldn't buy 1 in but it owes us nothing so worth chucking a bit of money at it especially as the guys had it from new and every receipt and previous MOT and we told we wouldn't take it without a full MOT:)

Same here never had any come back on mine with a near to floor bite. Better than right at the top.

The clutch will be knackered - or more accurately the pressure plate fingers will be weakened. 

I used to flog a few Kias/Hyundais & they go through clutches for fun. Cheap to replace but put in a quality make like LUK, don’t be tempted to save £20 on a ‘National’ clutch (or similar) because new they feel as bad as the one you’ve taken out.

I thought pressure plate fingers too, and plus one on the National clutch.... They feel like treading on basket full of mushrooms.

Common common issue with the i30 and i40. In fact almost all Hyundai

Clutch pressure plate weakens and the biting point gets lower and lower. Also the nylon rod between the clutch pedal and plunger of the master cylinder wears to add to the problem.

 

We normally remove this nylon rod ( just held on the pedal with an 'R' clip and onto the master cylinder with a plastic 'U' clip) cut it in half and add a 5mm length of 6mm bar between the cut lengths. We crimp a 12mm alliminium pipe outside this, refit it and clutch biting point is back as it should be! 

Cost us less than a tenner in alloy pipe from B&Q, and 15 mins of out time.
