Re: Rear window washer stopped working, can hear water down in the passenger door?

I don't think there is a guide to remove it. I wouldn't have thought it will be too difficult to remove the side trim .

Re: Rear window washer stopped working, can hear water down in the passenger door?

Yes the pipe runs that way and has probably burst with the recent frost. If you continue to operate it , the water will get on to the local electronic unit down there and damage it. If the car is in warranty get Vauxhall to repair it , but make sure you have 50/50% screen wash to water in your tank....

Thanks what exactly do you have to do?
Here are the instructions I got. I had to provide my vin number prior to delivery, so it will only work on that car. It is, as I said quite easy to do.

Step 9 was the one that give me the doubts.

Re: Nav900 map update

Hi all, Has anyone updated the map on a Nav900 system with the 2019 version and if so how long does it take and is it easy and finally is it worth it? Yes, I did it on my astra elite 16 plate. You have to follow the instructions to the letter that come with it from "Here maps". Took about 40 mins i...

Re: Battery and Alternator Voltage

The voltage drop at the engine bay and the ecu's will be more than at the battery, due to the long cable run from the boot to the engine bay.

Re: astra k stumped with multiple abs brake warning lights

I would perhaps try powering down the whole cars electrical system for 30 mins or so, in the hope it resets all the ecu's. Disconnect the battery negative wire.

Re: Battery and Alternator Voltage

Batteries can drop that sort of voltage on a cold crank. Some starter motors take hundreds of amps. See the 2nd paragraph below.

Did you voltage test at the under bonnet jump start contacts?

These F2 headlight H7 led bulbs fit the astra without any modification and are road legal.
Have you used these?
Also I couldn't find them on eBay at that price, have you a link?

Re: The END of ONSTAR

It is a shame Gena, I liked onstar quite a lot. I presume you have lane assist on your astra and the system was probably doing as it should when you were trying to move back into the left lane. I can only assume you did not indicate left, which lets the system know you are in control and it will all...
