    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?

    Drive belt Astra G van 2000 2l Sportive help

    Hi I would advise getting new tensioners and pulley along with any belts required as fitting secondhand ones will probably result in the same issue. It depends on whether you have air conditioning fitted and any other ancillary items which your main dealer can advise on what you will need....they would probably issue you with a fitment diagram as well. Let us know how you get on with it

    What links...

    The original key would need to be in the vicinity of the of the ignition barrel for the immobiliser code to be read. Maybe tape it to the replacement key to test this theory

    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

    Alloys

    Personal choice I suppose but would avoid any 'cheap' alloys as tend to crack easily

    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

    Vauxhall astra j

    Should be secured at both ends by self tapping screws and also attached to a crossmember which should unbolt (from memory!)

    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:
