When cold starting the astra, there is a rattle noise present as can be heard in the video linked here. Anyone know what it could be. It doesn't come back upon immediate restart. Just has to sit for a while and the sound will be back.
I know the rattling sound for 1-2 sec at startup, but this one stays, doesnt go away, but when I put it to first, start rolling out after a couple sec it goes away and doesnt come back, only when I shut down the engine, let it there for a while, and start again like 1 hour later, it doest the...
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...

Prior to buying there was no noticeable abnormal engine noises (otherwise I’d have walked away)
There is an audible rattle/tapping sound. I have a feeling it’s always been like this and I...
I have been trying for weeks now to find the source of a rattle, it sounds a bit like two pennies chattering together. It seems to come from the computer connection socket near the bonnet release. It was hard to find as you only get it when the car is moving and if it had been on the other side...
