  2 wierd issues
Posted by: Cameron UK - 11:th-Apr-2014, 19:21:23 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Common Problems - Replies (11)

Hope you can help, the first issue is:

1. A strange noise coming from my front right brake when breaking, doesn't happen when im stood still and pump the brakes, the best way to describe the sound is like a ratchet getting tighter the harder i push the pedal.

2. A clunking/knocking noise only when i go over large bumps or potholes,

Please help

  Whirring noise
Posted by: richje100 - 11:th-Apr-2014, 18:41:29 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Common Problems - Replies (13)

Hi guys, a while back car started making a whirring noise and vx came out with me and he said it was the engine discharging unused boost pressure. Since then it's been doing it an awfull lot.
I've uploaded a quick vid to youtube if anyone with a keen ear can have a listen You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.

Forward to about 15 secs and u can hear it when pressing in clutch to change gear. I can hear it on my phone if u can't let me know and I'll get the missus to hold my phone tomorrow

  Epb orange light
Posted by: richje100 - 10:th-Apr-2014, 20:01:20 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Common Problems - Replies (41)

Hey guys. Been having the orange lighting/spanner light coming on for a few seconds when pressing and releasing the footbrake. Now for the first time car wouldn't release the handbrake unless I push the epb button. This was starting car from standing still for about an hour. But it also started then died straight away as if it stalled but without any notice. Dropped kids to disco engine off for a few minutes and it released normal. Could this be the clutch switch? If I tell vx the light been on an off, handbrake wouldn't release and they hook up machine to see if a code would they charge me ? Also the engine beginning to sound really rough while accelerating. Got 1.7cdti 12plate, 24k on clock

  AC
Posted by: Lewis6317 - 10:th-Apr-2014, 10:01:21 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (7)

Well yesterday got bit hot in the car and I was forced to use the AC but when I turned it on I had a very strange and unpleasant smell.
Im thinking that could be the pollen filter but when I don't use AC and the fans are on cool I don't get a smell :(

Am I wrong and could be the pollen filter?
