Re: Stereo noise

I have just experienced exactly the same problem, including when the indicators are active.
I have had the car a year now & this is the first instance - the only difference today was the extreme heat.
The car has been lying a couple of hours & the fault has now cleared.
A very strange phenomenon.

Re: Rear view mirror tinting - led headlights

Prolonged exposure to LED headlights causes eye damage - I'll stick to the traditional bulbs thanks very much.

Re: Issues with re circulation / stuffy air

Yes, I also experience a stuffy smell. I try to rely on unforced circulation (no fan) and notice that opening any window by as little as 1 cm results in a dramatic increase in the air flow into the cabin. This suggests that the cabin is effectively sealed though there do appear to be vents at the re...

Re: Automatic front lights problem

When a driver has that low sun at the back of him/her and is viewing cars behind through the mirror for a lane change etc, sometimes cars are not seen with the glare of the sun, especially silver cars. The headlights on are seen believe it or believe it not. It protects you from being hit by cars in...

Re: Automatic front lights problem

I have had the car six months now and the auto lights are as everyone describes. I am fed up driving around like a wally with the sun-visor down to shield my eyes from the brilliant sunshine while the headlights are ablaze. Does anyone know if you can fit a better sensor from another Vauxhall model ...

Re: Rear view mirror tinting - led headlights

Agreed, the mirrors have the response time of a Brexit minister, but if these lights were not so bright in the first place the problem would not exist.

Re: Rear view mirror tinting - led headlights

Friends,

Even with the auto dimming these headlights are still blinding - German marques seem to be the worse.

Rear view mirror tinting - led headlights

Does anyone know where you can buy tinting (e.g. plastic film) to fit over the rear view mirror? I am severely hacked off at being blinded by following vehicles that are fitted with led headlights. SUV's are the worst as the design engineers seem to have ensured that the headlights are at just the r...

Re: Auto HeadLight Latency

I have exactly the same issue - sun visor down to shield my eyes and the headlights are on.
Has anyone found a definitive fix for this - I want mine fixed before the warranty expires?

Re: Automatic Lights

Scotty_b, Is the Corsa E switch a drop-in replacement? Is it easy to re-wire?
