Just had my service done today and told the the advisor about the creaks and groaning from the steering and front suspension. Turns out I need a new steering colum and lower arms replaced. Need to wait on the parts being delivered now. Hope this finally cures these nagging noises.

Would it be possible you could get the part numbers for the lower arms. Thanks

Hi everyone im new to this forum but Sooooo very glad to of read some of the stories from others with this problem, i hadn't been able to get anywhere with my local Vauxhall dealer with the knocking sound from my car after 2 visits and a short drive with their service manager i was told it was a characteristic of the car!! After reading these posts and finding out that Vauxhall/opal have since updated these drop links I've just bit the bullet and fitted a new pair i bought online from carparts4less (even the description online informs you of the update!)
Well im delighted the sound has gone !!!! Its like a different car.
Shame on Vauxhall as im sure this should of been a recall at their expense NOT mine .

Hello guys,
I'm writing you from turkey
I had been using Golf Mk7 for 4 years and around 100.000 kilometres long but i didn't have any single problem at all. But with this astra K, rattles from dash,opel eye,doors, door fits... everywhere of car has become like plastic orchestra, so i have started to dissapoint about this car day by day.
Fortunately, Opel Turkey services makes isolation to dash,opel eye. But wish it could be only rattles for this car.
A strange sound from driver side has been also added to my car, i went to opel garage of my city today. They couldn't find where sound comes from.
As i see you from guys, the source is same. Here's youtube video of car. and the sound.
Can you tell me which parts of your car has been changed and the numbers?
Any help would be very good for me :)
here's the noice

That could be from the steering column I am guessing.

It has been solved after 2 days in opel service turkey. Dogbone mount has been fulled with dust and sand?. They have cleaned and relubricated it again. And fortunately it happened in warranty time. They told me that this is first time for them that they saw this problem for astra k. hopefully it helped other users as well
