Re: Astra K 1.4 Creak/Groan

Had the top mounts replaced today.

They now tell me the drop links need replacing, they are on back order from Germany.

What are peoples thoughts on this?

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.

Re: Astra K 1.4 Creak/Groan

Just to add this noise/creak/groan only happens when the car has warmed up after about 6-8 driven.

Re: Astra K 1.4 Creak/Groan

Car is booked in for Wednesday morning.

It sounds like front pads or steering rack.

I get the same after travelling for about 5 miles. Creaks when crawling and first stop.
Is the reason for this known and would it be considered normal ?
