Wink Thoughts on universal seat cover
Posted by: Borklazer316 - 5:th-Feb-2019, 18:53:34 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - No Replies

Have been looking at universal seat covers on eBay. I have found some but I have yet to see any pictures of what they look like fitted on an Astra GTC 1.4t 15 plate. Does anyone know how they fit? Are they nice and snug or slightly loose and cheap looking? 

I was mainly looking at a set for £59.99 called “deluxe black red pu leather set for Astra”. On the stock photo they look like they fit perfect but would hate to get them and realise they actually do not fit as snug as the picture suggests. Anyone had any experience with this? 


 Thanks!

  Squeek/Rattle when starting engine
Posted by: Wabe_IV - 5:th-Feb-2019, 09:25:51 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (4)

Morning all, wondering if somebody could please shed some light

Had my car sitting at work for 9 hours yesterday and when I started it I heard a 2 second ish rattle/squeek which I'm unaware of and this has never happened before. I turned the car off and on again but didn't hear it again. Around 10pm last night I had to move my car, so turned it on after it been sitting with no movement for 5 hours, cold engine but heard nothing. Then again this morning I heard the squeek/rattle again

Any ideas? I drive a 2015 GTC limited edition with 39,000 on the clock. Constantly having problems with this car!!

  Technical Service Bulletin 3141 ECU update
Posted by: Tony Davis - 4:th-Feb-2019, 13:12:33 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (2)

Hi folks, new to the forum. I have an Astra GTC SRI 1.4 with an engine warning light issue. 
My garage told me that after consulting their Technical Information Supplier with the fault codes, that it needed an ECU update in response to Technical Service Bulletin 3141. 
I've just taken it into Vauxhall Wakefield and their service team have done 'an' update, but have never heard of Technical Service Bulletin 3141, so won't confirm whether or not it has fixed the warning light issue. 

Does anyone have access to this bulletin please, so that I can figure out whether it's my garage or Vauxhall Wakefield that's not doing their job right. 

Very many thanks in advance. 

Tony

  Replacing door check strap
Posted by: robk999 - 4:th-Feb-2019, 10:50:20 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (5)

My driver's door makes a loud clonk when I open it and I've been told the check strap needs replacing.  Is this an easy job?  I can only find guides for other models where the door card has to come off, is that needed for the Astra?

  oil leak 1.6 petrol
Posted by: niteram - 3:rd-Feb-2019, 17:13:10 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Common Problems - Replies (1)

Hi, I've got a couple of Astra J's, both 1.6 petrol
one has started a to leak a little oil - it doesn't seem to drip on the floor but the sump is wet - the drips fall onto the exhaust while driving (I love the smell of burning oil in the morning)

I've taken off the manifold heat shield and the front of block is also damp, so its not the sump gasket or the head gasket.
Is it likely to be the oil pressure switch?
Is this a known fault?
