  1. Today
  2. A friend mentioned that it could be a date it was quality controlled. But again, why would it have sat about so long before being fitted to the car?? One of those mysteries that will probably never get answered..
  3. It certainly was a relief coming away from the test centre with just 2 advisories. And being able to pick the garage owners brains about different bits and pieces. He is a vauxhall man through and through. And a mind of knowledge. All I've got to do now is sort out the speedo drive, as its playing up again. Apparently it could need a new seal, or it could want completely replacing, or it might just be getting wet and need a bit of protection for the winter.
  4. Not so sure its that simple as you would need the external aerial and also the system would need to be coded to the vehicle on the CanBus. Maybe a better option to buy a TomTom and also cheaper to update than Vauxhall system
  5. I'm sure that is the correct procedure.....have you tried it yet?
  6. How have you managed to get on with rebulding the engine?
  7. Hi Timbo.....welcome to the Club I believe there was a system to naming the different models over the decades but I have to admit I do not understand it either. A little before my time and I really started appreciating Vauxhalls after the 1960's when most models were instantly recognisable, unlike today's vehicles which all pretty much look the same. Good luck with your research and let us know how you are getting on with it all
  8. Yesterday
  9. Hi Steve, I've had the same recently with my 1.6 Astra. I put it down to the car being parked outside, and the fact that it has been colder than usual, so the oil is needing a little longer to get circulating on a cold morning. But once its been ticking over for a few minutes, it quietens down and is sweet as a nut from there on. Andy.
  10. Hi Sue, so glad to hear that you have been able to get sorted. I wasn't sure about my own Astra G, so I went on the UK DVLA website and found the info that i posted, in the hope that it would help other Vauxhall/Opel owners. And it appears that i have, even across the to the Netherlands. Have your Petrol stations increased their prices like the UK? Happy motoring. Andy.
  11. Hi I have a rear bumper with rubber insert brand new from vauxhall in 1985 for a cavalier mk1 never been out of box if you interested drop me a line thanks Adrian Shults

  14. Good morning, Recently just bought the new Mokka (lovely new design IMHO). I have connected my phone via USB and Android Auto is not connecting. My phone goes haywire, android auto goes on and off constantly until I disconnect the cable. I have completed some research myself and discovered that Android Auto is not compatible with Android 12 and above! I have the S21 5G. I have the google driving assistant on my phone but i can't get it to mirror with the infotainment system. I am connected via bluetooth but unable to connect via USB as the android auto issue occurs and the phone is unusable until i disconnect the cable. Any assistance would be appreciated or even if you are having the same issue let me know so im not going crazy lol. ive checked all settings etc and can't get the phone to mirror with the car screen. Does anyone use other apps for this? please let me know. Cheers Gary

  22. My airbag light is on, I’ve had the clock spring and the airbag control module replaced, the faults now clear and all appears fine, until you sit in the seat, I’ve checked the wiring I can see with the seat Inplace and can’t see anything wrong, vauxhall say there isn’t an occupancy sensor in the drivers seat, any ideas ? It just says low voltage, thanks Colin
