Re: Problems with gearbox following recall

Can you believe it, Vauxhall Customer Care want the findings reviewed by their Technical Manager to decide which garage is telling the truth, the recall garage or the one who did the 2nd opinion and stripped the car down. Both are reputable Vauxhall garages. Can anyone help? So the garage that did ...

Re: Quick aircon question water on drive

Totally normal... The next time you are somewhere, where the traffic is stopped on a hot summersday, try looking at the road when the traffic starts rolling, there are puddles everywhere. The reason this happens is that cold air can not contain as much moisture as hot air. If you cool down warm air,...

Re: retro parking cameras

holy cow! My thought exactly I have found a vauxhall dealer that was willing to do it for £415 but that is a dealer that is located about 200 miles away, so a bit of a long drive and back to save £60. Asked the local dealer if it was possible to buy the camera and install it myself and then just le...

Re: Intellilux

God how i hate that VCI coding scheme. Would be REAL nice if someone hacked the SHIT out of that system and atleast made a tool for independent repair shops so that it was ME that decided what features i wanted, and not Vauxhall that would decide what features i would be ALLOWED to get. From what i ...

Re: The END of ONSTAR

That is an answer only to silence possible movements of indignation... In fact, they will not follow up on anything related with OnStar. I agree The next models will have the Peugeot equivalent of Onstar and it will not be possible to retrofit the new system, to older cars. The wiring harness, conn...

Re: installing footwell lights - DIY

The A-Pillar just clips off, don't be afraid as the airbag isn't attached to it. But do route the cables the same way as the existing cables, you could potentially be snagging the roof airbags when they deploy if you have a wire around the front tether part. Curtain airbags do not deploy through th...

Re: 1.6 110 Diesel Fuel Economy

I just wanted to confirm what others are saying, I have the 1.6 110 ecoflex and now on my second full tank of mixed driving I'm getting 60mpg by fuel receipts and mileage. Now I would be really happy with this except that the computer is consistently showing an error of about 14% at 70mpg. This is ...
