Mine squeaked when going over bumps like speed bumps. I fixed it by stripping down the front brakes, Cleaning then re-assembling using copper grease. No longer get the noise.

Probably the front anti roll bar drop links need replacing. Mine sounded as if it was from the back of the driver's side too. Totally quiet now they have been replaced.

Dealer said they changed the drop links but the rattle is still there. Growing to really dislike this car with all the problems with it. More rattles than Mothercare. Convinced a wheel bearing has gone as well as the road noise is getting worse. Fed up of getting fobbed of by the dealer and am getting rid of it after Christmas. Last Vauxhall I will ever own. Sounds like the car is falling apart on some roads.

The saga continues, car was back at dealers today and a “mechanic” came for a spin with me to listen for the noise and he heard it clearly and was not sure what was the cause. Left the car with them and received a call saying rear brake pads were 90% worn, they needed to replace them to rule out that being the cause. Agreed to them doing it. Picked the car up at the end of the day and dealer said we have adjusted a few thing and if the problem is still there we will need the car for 2 days. Guess what? It’s still there.

Got robbed of £93 for the rear pads. Know I could of got it done cheaper but as the car was there and to try and get the rattle sorted I took the hit. I believe they did nothing other than the rear pads so I will rebook it in for two days as per their request. Still looking to get rid of the Astra after Christmas.
