Hyundai i30. Front air ventilation seat

The air ventilation seats are provided to cool the front seats by blowing air through small vent holes on the surface of the seat cushions and seatbacks.

When the operation of the air ventilation seat is not needed, keep the switches in the OFF position.

Whilst the engine is running, push the switch to cool the driver's seat or the front passenger's seat (if equipped).

  • Each time you push the switch, the airflow changes as follows:

  • When pressing the switch for more than 1.5 seconds with the air ventilation seat operating, the operation will turn OFF.
  • The air ventilation seats defaults to the OFF position whenever the ignition switch is placed to the ON position.


To prevent damage to the air ventilation seat:

  • Use the air ventilation seat ONLY when the climate control system is on. Using the air ventilation seat for prolonged periods of time with the climate control system off could cause the air ventilation seat to malfunction.
  • Never use a solvent such as paint thinner, benzene, alcohol or petrol to clean the seats.
  • Avoid spilling liquids on the surface of the front seats and seatbacks; this may cause the air vent holes to become blocked and not work properly.
  • Do not place materials such as plastic bags or newspapers under the seats. They may block the air intake causing the air vents to not work properly.
  • Do not change the seat covers. It may damage the air ventilation seat.
  • If the air vents do not operate, restart the vehicle. If there is no change, we recommend that you have your vehicle inspected by a HYUNDAI authorised repairer.
