Posted by: Elad1962 - 22:nd-Jan-2018, 13:42:39 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (1)

Guys, I expect this has been beaten to death but I actually cannot find anything under search... does anyone have the OEM numbers for the electric folding mirrors which were an optional extra for the Astra J Gtc Biturbo? Cheers in advance! Newbie

 I have been a member on this site since August 2017, I drive a 62 plate Astra 1.7 SRI which only had front & rear parking sensors when I bought the car, modifications so far include:-

Front & rear leather seats with heated seats & lumber support
Flex floor boot system
Power folding door mirrors
Leather door Cards
Rear electric windows
LED parking monitor display
Auto dimming mirror
Pioneer F88 dab
Reversing Camera
Remap 130 BHP to 160 BHP & 221  to 271 Nm Torque done

Being facelift model meant that was no rear fuse box so Rusty 2009 did the work & modifications for the heated seats, door cards, electric rear windows, & vci codes from Vauxhall & assoiciated looms that was required, very impressed as no piggyback fuses were requried.

Future Modifications to include if possible

Rear fog lights wired into rear reflectors & additional reversing light in place of the original rear fog light.

  Piston help
Posted by: joshparker1911 - 21:st-Jan-2018, 10:57:05 - Forum: Mechanical - Replies (1)

Sorry if I'm in the wrong section I'm new and come in need of help. I have a 2013 Astra 1.7 Cdti ecoflex sports tourer in need of a new piston. After getting in touch with vauxhall the part is on back order and they can't give me any sort of date for delivery. There is an alternative available from KOLBENSCHMIDT but I'm not sure if this will be okay ? Has anyone here had the same problem or used a replacement piston ? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm really stuck.

  Astra J 2.0 cdti noise on cold start up
Posted by: Iaintruten - 16:th-Jan-2018, 22:54:40 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Common Problems - Replies (3)

Hi Guys if anyone has a noise on cold start up that's sounds similar to a failing water pump but disappears after 10 seconds it could be the auxilary belt tensioner as I just replaced my belt and tensioner yesterday and what a difference. £70 fix so not too expensive just thought I would give everyone a wee heads up and the best way to confirm this is remove the auxilary belt and do a cold start and see if the noise has disappeared as well as feel for play in the pulleys as well.

Advice required : any ideas as to why my 3 passenger doors simple will not open ( from inside or out ) , the locks pop when the remote central locking is pressed. But the doors are deadlocked shut [Image: 1f621.png]? even my local garage is baffled as the diagnostics says the locks / deadlocks are activating/deactivating
