    Meriva immobilizer

    Hi This does appear to be a common problem with the engine ECU not clearing stored processes and the method used to clear this is to remove the battery leads from terminals, flash them together for about 20 seconds, wait for about two minutes and reconnect. See if this works and if so, you may need to carry it out each time it stops starting

    Cambelt or chain

    It should have a timing belt I believe but a quick examination of the cover at the end of the engine will determine this (e.g. plastic for timing belt) http://replace-timing-belt.com/how-to-replace-timing-belt-on-vauxhallopel-combo-c-1-7-di_/

    Drive belt Astra G van 2000 2l Sportive help

    Not a bad call with bypassing the air conditioning compressor....have done it before and was just a case of finding the correct size belt to work successfully without slipping or walking off. Do you find many Gloworms nowadays? Cannot remember the last time I saw one, but it was on a night manoeuvres with the Scouts so that was a lifetime ago.

    CD400 radio cd player

    I'm sure it needs to be set up for this to occur in the first place. Does it mention how to enable bluetooth and how it goes into search mode for any nearby devices?

    Alloys

    Mmmm, cracked alloys, I can verify that one. Please make sure that if you get secondhand to check they've not been welded. My Astra had a welded alloy on when i bought the car. After a couple of months I noticed it was cracking near the bolt holes. That wheel was removed and scrapped. Replacement found on ebay for £15.

    Thanks, but it was already happening before the barrel was changed 👍🏻

    Locking wheel nut

    That's annoying as you would have to buy a whole set to replace just the one. I don't imagine anyone would steal the one wheel if it didn't have a locking nut on it though

    flicking oil light.

    Hi Andy I would carry out the oil change and see what it does afterwards. I imagine the oil has lost some of its viscosity (check the oil does not smell of petrol) Let us know how you get on with it Cheers, Trev

    Vauxhall astra j

    Hi there, if it's anything like the astra g, then there is 3 bolts on the front cross member, under bonnet, a couple of self tappers in each wheel arch. And possibly 3 plugs holding the dust guard in place underneath. Hope we've been helpful.

    Locking wheel nut

    Hi guys I seem to be missing my locking wheel nut on my from near side wheel, I don’t suppose any of you have a spare locking but laying around anywhere do you?

    Induction Kit

    Hi....welcome to the Forum Usually, there are parts available on eBay to make up your own system. Usual things like Samco style induction hose, AMM housing, cone filter, etc....worth a try and probably a lot cheaper as well

    Corsa d engine transplant

    Hi....welcome to the Forum To be fair, I'm not entirely sure what else will fit but it may be worth locating a secondhand replacement engine and replacing the timing chain assembly before fitting so that you know it will last more than 40k

    key stuck in ignition??

    It sounds like it is not reading either the handbrake or park sensor switches so therefore is not releasing the key. Maybe worth trying to cycle it from park to drive and back again. Also, keep your foot on the brake pedal as well. Here is some more info I have found for this fault:

    Front fuel feed pipe 2.2 petrol - Needed

    I would take the pipe to a pipe and hose repairer and they should be able to make one up for you at very little cost We have one in Dorset - Thread and Pipes who can make anything to get you out of a predicament
  27. Does anyone have or know where to get a front fuel feed pipe for a 2.2 petrol Vectra C? Part number is 13109184, part isn't manufactured anymore.
