#14 of 33 BELT IDLER PULLEY

Sounds like the fanbelt idler pulley- warrantied for 5 years or 60,000 miles. Piece of cake to change- your dealer should stock them.

#16 of 33 Belt tensioner pulley

Just spoke with the dealer service rep- He knew what I was talking about soon as I mentioned it, and said the whine or whirring noise was from the belt tensioner pulley.
Taking it there tomorrow for that and the dash- The burst panel on top of the dash that covers the passenger airbag module is separating along the seam. Service rep told me they will order and install a new dashboard.

The dealers and service managers are trained by Hyundai and respond to their experiences with Hyundai HQ. I have used two dealers and both have been excellent. It was the Hyundai district parts and service managers who denied on the problems.
Dealers are ecstatic when they can do warranty work on a car. Why wouldn't they be? More money for them. However, they know they have to get Hyundai to OK the work or they won't get paid.
Bottom line. If dealer SM does not acknowledge the problem, immediately call Hyundai's Consumer Affairs and open a case. Get the case number. Also, tell dealer SM that you want an appointment to see the district parts and service manager from Hyundai. He/she may deny it, but maybe not. I got two sets of front struts free this way. Unfortunately, they didn't help the problem.
What is going to kill Hyundai as a luxury brand is too many niggling problems with their cars that cannot be fixed. People who buy M-B, BMW, Lexus, etc. may be willing to accept some things because of the prestige, but Hyundai has no prestige.

Check Engine Light on???? Get the dealer to do a diagnostic check.....Maybe crankshaft sensors??? There are 2 : inboard and outboard....Just a thought.

Yes my eng. lite is on. BUT, it runs now. Will take it in and ask about the sensors- the GM motors have those too(1). Thanks.

My dealer showed codes P161B,P1295,P2106 stored, there was a TSB 10 for a "ECU" upgrade, was performed, driven, no codes after that. N/C. WHEW!!

#23 of 33 Azera Engine Problem
Jan 25, 2012 (8:58 am)
I have 2007 Azera with 85K. An engine noise similar to a loose valve train started about 3 months ago. I took it to the dealer and the timing chain tensioners were replaced under warranty.
Next morning on a cold start a similar but decidedly different noise occurred. Took it back. They disassembled the engine and the FWC warranty inspector looked at it and neither he nor the service manager could see any part that was out of spec. As a result, FWC is not going to do anything. Dealer will reassemble the engine all on their dime. I am thinking about having them replace the bearings as that is what they suspect is causing the noise. Any advice?
