Frequently Questions

For the Benefit of other Terracan Owners on this and world wide, I have a list of modifications and and answers for asked questions.

Can I fit Diff to my Terracan?






tyres are for Road, All Terrain and Mud All the above will fit regardless of

What is the Largest size I can fit to a Lifted Hyundai Terracan?

The is the same as a standard Hyundai . The reason is the wheel arches. In to fit Larger tyres than you will need to trim sections of the wheel arch mud guards to accommodate a larger

If you have a suspension lift and a lift then less of the arch will need

The amount to trim vary’s on size. But for a 33 tyre you need 25mm and to accommodate a 35 tyre you need to trim 50mm off the wheel arch, and remove the mud internally and externally completely.

Can I My Diesel Terracan?

Yes, You There are two ways of doing One is a 40mm Suspension lift of 2x Front Torsion bars, 2x Shocks, 2x rear 40mm springs and 2x rear shocks.

A quality lift kit can be found The UK official distributor for TJM lit used to be – At moment There is NO UK OFFICIAL TJM (Updated 19/2/12)

Another Suspension Lift Kit is made by The UK stockist of Ironman suspension to be West Coast 4×4. At This moment there is NO UK IRONMAN STOCKIST (Updated

There is a 3rd High Quality Kit available in the UK. ARB’s Old Man EMU Suspension. A Old Man EMU distributor in the UK is and Both of these can supply and fit the (Updated 19/02/12).

The other is a body lift. This is complicated but the parts are alot to come by. The process involves the 8 bolts that hold the on to the chassis and inserting the spacers.

these spacers have put in place the bolts are then I recommend that 2 is the largest you Any larger and you need to start brake lines or extending etc.

The body lift kit can be here: (Updated

Can I fit a Raised Air Intake to my Terracan

You can. The Raised air intake is by TJM. It follows the body of the front right pillar, so it is hidden when you are sat in the drivers It bolts directly on to the right of the vehicle and the inside of the drivers it comes supplies with a of tubing to couple on to the air filter

The Raised air intake is made high quality plastics as as if not better than the popular snorkel. Sun light ad UV has no effect on the plastic construction. Silicone is to get a complete, watertight seal. The TJM can be bought from and for a fee they can install the Snorkel. Currently Out of stock in the United as there is NO TJM Distributors in the UK.

It is possible to use Mk2 Safari Snorkels, tho you may need to small adjustments).

Can I get raised for a Terracan?

You can relocate the front axle, axle, automatic transmition and fuel tank breather up in to the or even higher running up side of the snorkel. The breather is easy to get a hold of, and in varying

Connectors are also available to on to the existing breathers to extend or also to put them in to a junction box so you have one breather pipe not 4 up the side of the raised air intake.

and connectors can be bought from any 4×4 company but like of the products available on the Terracan is the best place to get them

Can I fit a winch and/or bumper to my Terracan?

Yes you can. There are 3 of winch bumpers that I am of.

You have the Aluminium front The Steel Winch bumper and the winch mount.

The Steel Bunper is from the Shogun/Pajero/Montero

The Hidden Winch mount is from:

In my opinion it be cheaper, stronger and lighter to get a winch bull bar custom can build high strong, custom winch for your vehicle.

Can I get Protection for the of my vehicle?

There is a selection of plates available for the Hyundai Diesel. These are made by and can be bought and imported in to the UK via either or .

They are not cheap but are very well made and are strong. Constructed out of 6mm aluminium, replace the vehicles original and steel skid plates the same nut and screw holes.

I more Articulation out of the Terracan, how can I do

You can give the vehicle a suspension with this you get longer and shocks. With the TJM XGS kit that I use I gained around 2 or 50mm drop travel. If you want Inch on the back and on the front you can shave the bump stops.

on what tyre size you on the vehicle when articulating the might grind away at the arch.

Some people removed the front and rear bars to gain maybe Inch or 25mm. IMO I would this well alone, The bars are on there for a reason.

How my Terracan 4wd system work?

are two types of transfer case available on the Hyundai Terracan

The first is the Full time 4wd You have 2 settings. Auto and The switch should be in auto 99% of the dry or wet roads, snow covered etc.

If you are going off road or in a field and need low speed they you want to move the to Low.

The difference between the two is that in Auto the vehicle sending power to both and rear axles with the case unlocked.

When you the dial to Low This engages the low on the transfer case and automatically the centre differential to send the 50/50 front to rear.

The type of transfer case on Terracans is Part Time This time the dial has 3 2wd, 4wd hi and 4wd low.

You want vehicle to be in 2wd 99% of the times unless you are off

On the part time transfer there is NO centre diff. The and rear shafts are locked permanently. When you select 4wd hi via the the vehicle will engage the wheel hubs. Thus you 4wd 50/50 front to rear. should only be used traction could be lost in

Like in fields, or on snow roads.

The last selection is 4wd This is for when maximum and traction are needed when off or towing on adverse terrain.

Why my Terracan go in to low ratio?

Steering column. – This can make a strange knocking when going over Terrain. The solution is to lubricate the column and the steering shaft in the bay.

Suspension Idler: The most common reason to the knocking sound. There are ways to get over this, but the way is just to replace the item. Hyundai parts. Suspension/steering retails around £49.99p

my Terracan have a rear

Some do and some do not. If its a 2.9 then It will have If its a 3.5 petrol its 50/50. If you have the 2.5 engine then no you do not.

If you are unsure find level jack the rear axle up on sides. Turn one wheel, if the wheel turns in the same then you have the Limited diff, if the opposite wheel in the opposite direction then you no LSD. Sorry.

My rear keeps making a funny when driving, what is it?

is a early sign that rear diff needs The oil for the LSD needs replacing with the type issued in your owners guide. If the oil is old, low or of the type then the LSD will not it and will make a horrible 99% of the time the oil is changed and the problem away.

If the problem persists, you have probably waited too and the rear differential is knackered.

Why Is My Central Door Locking Not

When the Terracan nears 10 old there can be complications with the door locking.

Symptoms: during winter the central locking was acting up. After the doors I had between 1-5 seconds to the drivers door and insert the key or the vehicle would lock.

To fix this problem you need to each doors locking wiring and their solenoids. The for my faulty central door was the drivers door locking was shorting out on the door frame, I the wiring which seemed and ordered a replacement Terracan solenoid from Hyundai, the parts over and all is well the controls working fine the key fob, locking and unlocking the key and locking and unlocking via the interior

I also too the time to coat the in an electronic weather protector GT85, similar to WD40.

You look to pay around £4.50 £11 for a Hyundai Genuine Central Locking Solenoid.

Can I get more out of the Terracan’s Mercedes Benz 2.9 Engine?

You can. The 4 easiest and reliable ways to do this

High Flow Air Filter. KN, Greens filters, both will allow the engine to more easy and add a small of bhp to the motor. This can be found

Raised Air Intake: TJM supply a raised air intake and allows more are to enter the and intercooler over the standard vent located on the drives wheel arch. This with the air filter and ECU remap a larger amount or torque and BHP and fuel economy.

SS Exhaust: Magnaflow. a 2.5 inch or 3 inch ss coupled to a sports catalyst and sports silencer will let the escape form the engine This does have a on the engine bhp and torque but can also the fuel economy.

ECU Remap: Evolution Tuning, Tunit. of these are top of the line ECU upgrades, to give your engine horsepower and alot more The Evolution tuning is not a power or a box like the Tunit, it is in fact a ECU which I recommend over the chip. This can be found

I had my Evolution ECU Remap to offer minimal BHP increase but torque increase. My Terry is of torque @ 2000 rmp. the standard 335nm.
