  1. Astra J/GTC
    Just bought myself a GTC 2012 with 100k miles on it. Not sure how many times the previous owners changed the gearbox oil, if at all. Which gearbox oil should I choose, also how much do I need for an oil change? Cheers, F

    Does anyone know about the installation on front splitter to this model, I have 2010 1.7 cdti! I’ve attached images of the rubber underneath the bumper of the car - and the screws that came with the splitter - it is attached to the bumper as seen. I was wondering if anyone knows if I can screw...

    Hey all, I've had my J for a month or so and I've noticed rain sense kicks in randomly when the stalk is in the off potion, regardless of the weather. Once they start, there is no stopping them – you can put the stalk in any position you like and return to the off position in hope something is...

    Oil leak coming from the engine (see pictures), a bad burning smell and the engine over heating and taking forever to cool down. Haven't had this car long and it's causing me a lot of headaches! Also due a recall that was supposed to be done in 2016 and wasn't (cooling fan software). I didn't...

  7. Astra J/GTC
    Hi there, I am currently experiencing an issue with my Astra J where the windscreen washer pump does not come on (no sound), simply the wipers engage. I have checked fuse 40 and all seems fine. Strangely enough the washer does come on and work correctly for the rear. For the sake of eliminating...

    I've got an astra j 1.4 turbo. Firstly when I cold start my car, the whole car vibrates a lot and then after 30 seconds it goes. Not sure if this Is something I should be worried about. Secondly, when I try to put the car into first or reverse it's really stiff and hard to put into gear. Has...

    Just been brushing up on general maintanence for my 2010 Astra J and want to change the rear breaks. I've changed breaks before and never needed a rewind tool but think I'm going to need them. Firstly I'm not sure if the piston can simply be pushed in or if it needs to be rotated back in. My...

    Astra 2013 1.3 diesel eco flex where occasionally it refuses to start and displays service soon, it was serviced around 2 months ago. It went to Vauxhall dealer and spent just under 2 weeks with them where they say it started everyday and showed no faults? Since then it has failed again and I...
  15. Astra J/GTC
    Hi all, I've come to this site because I don't seem to have had much luck on the Facebook pages (also I was part of sax-perience years ago, and hoped this site would play on my nostalgia a little too). I've had my astra 60 plate about 5 years now, and as long as I can remember, I've always...
  16. Astra J/GTC
    Hi. My astra j 2.0 cdti started behaving weirdly like it’s dropping in and out of limp mode. The revs just drop and then come back. Pulling away gets difficult as power not there. Also getting clunky when it’s doing this Had my codes read and all that came up was two codes for 2nd & 3rd glow...

    Hi all, I’ve recently bought a 2013 1.6 Turbo GTC 177BHP, I liked it at first but now I’m used to it I’ve come to the realisation that the 1.5 eco boost Ford Focus I had before was much quicker despite the 27 less BHP I know that’s probably down to weight etc... Anyway, I’ve seen a stage one...

    Hello people, I've just installed a tesla style android 10.0 head unit on my astra j 2014. Everything works fine apart from some buttons on the Head unit. Hazard, door locks/unlocks dont work. I checked the back of the unit and compared it to my old head unit and I've noticed that the connector...
