Integrated Brake Actuation unit replacement.
I wanted to pass along something to everyone about a repair I just had completed under warranty. In talking with the dealer the Hyundai techline told them that this was the first that they have heard of thus particular issue. This is on my 2017 Ioniq SEL (U.S.).
Currently I have 34,000 miles on mine. But somewhere around the 12,000 mile mark I started noticing a rather obnoxious squeaking noise related to the brakes. When this first started it happened so intermittently that I did not bother bringing it in to the dealer. I could not duplicate it on the regular so it would have gotten the dreaded "unable to duplicate customer complaint at this time, vehicle performing as designed". I've typed that enough times during my dealership career, definitely didn't want to see it come back my way.
After say 10,000 more miles I was able to make it happen more often then not when pushing the brake pedal to take the car out of park. It would never make that noise if it was not in Park. Braking always seemed to function properly. As I am apparently a glutton for punishment the noise had not gotten nearly annoying enough for me to have it looked at yet.
So 10,000 miles more and the squeaking would now happen everytime when shifting out of Park. And it would also happen when pushing the pedal to start the car, and also with the car off and just pumping the brake pedal.
I brought it to the dealer last week. It ended up being a phone call to the tech line. Initially they were told to go through a 15 page long procedure which ended in a brake system bleed. Noise was still unchanged. After that techline advised them to order up and install the Integrated Brake Actuation Unit. I'm told by the dealer that this ended up being a $2000 part. Flat rate time was right about 2.5 hours, though since no one at the dealer had ever done this repair yet it took them the better part of the day.
Just wanted to post this in case anyone else run into it and the dealer either can't duplicate it, or has no idea how to get it fixed.
My Ioniq is my office and I usually drive around 30-35,000 miles per year. I would assume I put it through much more driving than alot of people do in 3 years.
For the noise itself it can be heard both inside and outside of the car. It comes from the area of where the master cylinder would be in a standard brake system. It is definitely not something you would confuse the brake pedal squeaking with, and not like a brake pad squeaking. More like the insanely annoying squeakers in dog toys that I refuse to let my dogs play with.
If anyone is needing it I do have the techline case #.
