    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

    Hey guys, does anyone know if you can / how to remove the Griffin badge from the boot of the GTC? I want to replace it with a custom one but I'm unsure if it can be removed as it's the boot opening mechanism isn't it. Failing that I'll just plastidip it.

    Hi guys, On the weekend my GTC started making a screeching noise, I took it to 3 mechanics who could not book me in anytime soon. When I remove the dipstick or oil cap there is a strong vacuum that makes it difficult to lift up (especially the oil cap). From reading up it seems it may be a...

    The engine and esp light came on my GTC yesterday, and the engine was misfiring. Has anyone had this and what was the problem? I've just spoken to a mechanic and said it could be the head gasket, which is a worry! but can't get out to diagnose it until later in the week.

    I have a NAVI 600 in my GTC however for the last 2 years I’ve had issues where if I drove through pot holes or cracks in the road my volume would turn down, then suddenly all the controls on the navi would stop working but would turn on after a while or spamming a few buttons. Now the controls...

    Probably been pushing it for too long, but 2017 1.4t gtc has developed a whine, starting July last year at around 30k. Increasly getting louder. 41k now. Reading that the gearbox is the notorious M32 and is common issue. Generally the whine starts above 20mph and get louder with speed, no...

    Hi all My Astra GTC has a rattle/buzz coming from the upper drivers side door. I’ve had the door card off and the sound is still there, and there’s nothing loose in the door itself. After playing around I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s coming from the B pillar part of the door, if you know...

    my Astra j gtc 2015 drives fine until a service light shows on dash, then stops accelerating and loses all boost/turbo power. It’s had an actuator arm replaced as well as boost sensor, and has been serviced. Also thermostat housing replaced but can’t find a solution. Any ideas?
