Hi I am removing rear roof liner in a Imax 2014 to convert to a camper. Have removed side trims, clips, handles and seatbelts. Liner is lose but won’t drop. Is it glued to aircon ducts ect or are the lights holding it up. If so how do I sort this out please? Mark

The rear row of 3 seats do not come out unless you unscrew them and take out and leave out.they will only fold down forwards in half.itsnot a camervsn so cant really be used as one.its really a people mover with luggage space for holidays and travel.Julie Williams

I bought my Imax 2013 privately from a guy that had taken all the rear seats and had changed it to a 2 seater as he was using it as a courier van.. Little the I know, now the registration came and I have to pay for a Class 6 van, which is $1360 a year and can not afford this, is there anything I can do to get it back to a class 1 or 2 in order to pay less rego, I am using domestic/private, I really like the van, but is sooo unfair what motor transport do

Hi there just wondering if the seats in the third row (very back) lay flat in the 2014 imax also if the sliding row in the middle locks in to the floor rail when pushing towards the front seats to give more room? It looks like it should but the one we just brought doesn’t. Thanks so much

Hi Benny.
Rearmost seats do not fold flat. I remove them when we tour with the vehicle.
I think mine is the same in that the middle row does not lock into place when moved forward.
Cheers

Hi guys, I want to go the opposite way, I want to take my front double passenger seat out and put a single seat in so that I can easily get into the rear. Is there anyone out there who might know if the floor pan has the anchor points for both so that one can easily make the change? Cheers Rich

I have a Hyundai IMAX 2013 and I want to put the front and rear seats back in the van, however I have misplaced the bolts that secure the seats in the van. What are the sizes of the rear bolts and the bolts that secure the front seats to the sliders?

Has anyone upgraded their high beam lights to LED? If so, was it plug n play or a pain? I have a 2013 and tried to do it but they are strange bulb holders that do not seem.to match any LED on the market. Interested if anyone has had similar experiences

I use led light purchase from eBay, the H7 globe only got 2 prong and will have to rotate 180 degree as the wiring of the plus is reversed on mine. I may sound odd and it take some time to find the right spot to lock it into the back of the light fitting, but it does work and once lock in is stable and not loose.

Thanks Frank, it sounds like a bit of hassle. So was it worth it? Is the beam much better?

We have a 2019 Imax. Love the van. Technology in it is great, however, when it's raining the passenger.. me.. is looking through the unwiped part of the windscreen. I have never owned a vehicle with this problem. It really is a terrible design floor. So my question is, can something be done to lower the seats so this doesn't happen

Still waiting for an answer, perhaps it was an add-on extra but it certainly looks factory fitted

Conor V.

Pretty sure it’s factory fitted in the crew edition or as an optional extra. I ended up drilling them out. They seem to be more like rivets. It can still be put back in if needed, just needs that particular bolt replaced with something removable (if desired)

How do I remove the second and third row seats fro an imax?

2 answers

Ooooh an easy one for me, I do it all the time :)

Firstly remove the bolt covers from the feet of the seats (grey plastic) with a smallish flathead screwdriver and a hammer
Secondly undo the 14mm bolts with a heavy duty socket set with an arm extension, they come out the factory very tight!), if you don't have this ask a friendly local mechanic just to loosen them for you with a rattle gun)
Thirdly, use healthy adults to lift the seats out, they're heavy

That's it - there are no wires cable seat belt tensioners or anything else to do, you can take the 2nd row runners out with an Allen Key, but I don't bother I just put a bit of carpet over them. I've driven at as a 2 seater van (with aircon for the load, we're inn the wine trade so this good) 3 seater and combination thereof

We will be renting a peoplemover and may end up with an imax and we intend to sleep in it (possible years are 2011 to 2014). Can the seats in the second and third row fold forward flat such that we could lay a piece of plywood down and sleep on top? This would be our back up option in case we dont get the carnival.

What year model was turbo issue rectified? Looking at a 2010 model but have been reading some bad reviews regarding turbo failure.

1 answer

I understand it was 2012 onwards. But it seems to be a common thread that servicing is the issue. Hyundai recommend oil change every 15,000 km but most experts think this is too long. It makes sense as dirty, diluted or contaminated oil may prevent the turbo from being lubricated properly.
