  1. Vauxhall models section, not chat, sorry. Scroll down to the bottom where it has older cars. Andy
  2. Hi Peter, and welcome to the forum. If you look in the Members chat section, you will see that there is a section for Carlton owners. Someone will probably be able to help you with any issues you might have. Regards Andy.
  3. Hi Helen, and welcome to the forum.
  4. Welcome to the club, I am sure there will be someone who can answer any questions that you might have, and give you any tips to getting the full enjoyment from your car.
  5. It doesn't seem to have made a difference with my fuel economy. I did 130 miles the other day on £15 of E10, and the old girl gave me 56 mpg. I don't mind that from a 20 year old car that's done nearly 230,000 miles.
  6. in case people are wondering, Yes the armchair is tatty, as its the one our 5 cats sleep in and as you can see, sharpen their claws on.
  7. Couldn't agree more with regarding the older Astra, I'm on my second mk4 G. Both have 1.6 petrol engines. And I have had many happy miles in them too. AndyR
  8. Must admit, I prefer silver rather than black wheels. I do have a set of black alloys that will be getting a coat of silver whilst it's nice warm weather. Black wheels suit dark coloured vehicles better in my opinion.
  9. Update on the silencer. Managed to find a new one on ebay for £45.00. Unfortunately it's not the clam shell that I originally had, as these seem to be quite scarce at the moment. So I got a cylindrical one that fits perfectly. So before it got too hot outside this morning, I've been and fitted it. Car now sounds nice and quiet again . She might get a service later when it cools down. We're sitting at 27°c at the moment here in Norfolk. Regards Andy.
  10. Hi there, it might be worth your time to put some pictures on of your car, that way people can have a look at it. Also putting either a price, or a way of being able to contact you for more info. Hope you find it a good home. Regards Andy.
  11. Update on the electric fan situation. Whilst brother-in-law was changing a headlight bulb, he noticed that there was a load of corrosion around the thermostat housing. When he gave it a poke, he saw that it was breaking up. So a new thermostat unit was ordered, and he has now fitted it, and all is back to normal. A complete thermostat unit from ebay was a grand total of £27.00. So a good cheap fix.
  12. I've tried ebay, and not had any luck. They're either way over priced, or it comes up as out of stock when you do a buy it now. I bought one on ebay, and it was never sent, so I had to claim my money back. Looks like I might be heading out to some local breakers/salvage yards to see if I can find a good usable 2nd hand one for now.
  13. this looks interesting. I am going to check on the fuel cost, as its 215 miles each way for me, and with the price of fuel at the moment. andyr
