I understand that there is probably a richer fuel mixture at start up.

Re: Astra K 68 Plate Wet in the Boot

Just to add to this, in the last week I had a tow bar fitted, I didn't think it was any relevance but maybe it has.

Any thoughts on this?

Astra K 68 Plate Wet in the Boot

After a recent downpour I noticed today that it is wet in the boot and some has crept onto the left rear passenger seat.

Is there a known problem with these cars?

Regards.

Re: Astra K 1.4 Creak/Groan

Had the front drop links replaced and so far the noise is no longer there.

It has only been 3 days so time will tell.

Re: Astra K 1.4 Creak/Groan

It was suggested that the top mounts need replacing.

The car is less than 2 months old and under 800 miles, why would these be worn out and need replacing?

Re: Astra K 1.4 Creak/Groan

To add, the noise was still there, took it back and have told me the top mounts need replacing, these are on order and will re-book to have them fitted.

I will report back with the outcome.
