    hi, I recently picked up a 2nd hand Elite Astra J, 2.0 Diesel with Start Stop. I've been looking to replace the Navi 600 unit with an Android but can't seem to find anything that's compatible with the S/S models..... Would appreciate it if anyone could help point me in the right direction. Cheers

    I bought a Astra j -14 with the cd400+ system. I have now been browsing around trying to find a retrofitted kit containing Bluetooth and hands free that can be connected to the buttons on the steering wheel and so on... does anyone know if it still exists and where to find it in such case?

    Hello! I’m new around here so it’s my first time, I own an Astra J 1.4 turbo and within the past couple of months I’d say it’s started whining and making a sort of high screaming noise whilst accelerating above 40mph going into 50mph and above, the car has a coolant problem which I’m aware of...

    Hi there, New to the forum so apologies if this has already been covered elsewhere, however I'm stumped... Since having the car the USB hasn't working in any way shape or form. When plugging into it there's no charging, no recognition etc. Finally during these strange times I've taken the...

    I recently swapped my 17" standard alloys for 18" VXR alloys on my Astra J. I'm wondering what wheel nut caps to buy for them as the caps off the original alloys do not suit as they are designed to fit into the deep bolt holes that were on the original alloys. They do fit but they stick out over...

    Hi all, 2nd gear seems like it is getting stuck as it revs higher than normal before changing to third. It's very noticeable on a normal speed pull-off and even louder on a fast pull-off - it really screams. All other gear changes change as exepcted. Any ideas what the issue could be? Not taken...

    hi guys. when the car is in first gear and I'm releasing the clutch, i can hear a rattling sound. the sound only occurs in first gear and only when releasing the clutch in first gear, not any other gears. some relatives have told me it could be a loose exhaust mount due to speed bumps but I'm...
