Toe-in for 2013 Hyundai i30 needed.

2013 Hyundai i30 1.6 CRDi Hatchback

Bit of a long shot that someone will answer but does anyone know for sure what the tacking should be set to? I'm changing one of the track-rod ends on my daughter's car tomorrow and, unless someone can tell me for sure what the tracking is, I'll be setting it to parallel - to - toe-in.

I have a set of the old fashioned Dunlop tracking irons. They've served me well over the decades.

No I dont Paul but google search comes up with a possibility. No idea whether it is a reliable source.

Thanks Neil. I must have been too restrictive with my search parameters as I didn't find that site. Possibly because, I think that, 2007 is the previous generation model. Anyway it sort of concurs with what I thought.

Thanks for the offer Wheeler but the car has gone back to Swansea with my daughter. I'll bear that in mind next time though.

I decided to set the tracking at parallel but when I put the irons on I couldn't see the alignment mark through the eyepiece. I worked out that the front skirt was so low that line of sight was obstructed and so all I could do was leave the new TRE screwed in to the same position as the old one. Fortunately the locking nut was stuck and so that was relatively easy. Later on (too late!) my brother suggested that I could have taken the right-angled adjustable arms out and reversed them to push the optics further forward.

I don't know if that would've worked in practice. But I had other things to do on her car anyway.
