You probably would have to bond thin plastic at the back of the clip.

Re: Astra k 2018 navigation wrong location

Hi
Insufficient satellite signals to pin point the position is the satellite with red Cross through it, possibly. I get it when the car is in my garage, but soon picks them up when I back out.

TP is for the traffic warning system on the radio I think. You can usually disable it.

Re: Brake light issue

I wonder why they have a potentiometer on the brake pedal now. Only reason i could think of is to know the exact pedal position for the emergency brake assist function ? I think it monitors the rate of change in pedal travel so it knows you are, for example emergency braking and the brake module ac...

Re: Brake light issue

Good pictures

Re: Break light issue

I noticed your car is a diesel from a battery charging post you did. Has your car had the recall done on the brake and clutch system? That is if it requires it.

Re: Break light issue

I was having a look to get a bit familiar and the steel bolt/pin in red has a bit of rust, and I feel like the pedal is not coming up with my foot quick enough as if there is lag in the pedal springing back I sprayed some wd40 were the rust is and I'll see if that helps at all before I go further T...

Re: Break light issue

From the picture it looks very similar to the astra j potentiometer brake switch, which regularly failed in the early j's. Had it happen to my car when I had it. Friends or work colleagues would inform me my brake lights were flickering on and off of their own accord. I noticed on motorway journeys ...
