  1. Astra J : Metalic clink sound + whirring in final drive + starting to 'tick'

    Astra J/GTC
    I have a completely standard Astra J 1.6 and it's developed a bit of a quirk. I have booked it into VX but they can't see it for almost 2 weeks! Just wondered if anyone can give an indication of what this could be. The Car: - Standard - 30k - 5yrs Old Symtoms: When moving between gears and...
  2. Noise after cam belt change

    Astra H
    Hi all, So my local garage has just completed a cam belt change on my 2.0T astra sri a few days ago. I had only covered a few miles up until today when I heard a strange whining sound coming from the engine bay. Basically, it's only a low whine, but it revs up and gets louder with the engine...

  5. Gear box or not?!?! (Whining)

    Astra J/GTC
    Hi all I know this has been discussed 100's of times but from reading the other posts it seems like the dreaded whine may be something else?? When driving our 2010 Astra j 1.4t Sri I can hear a whine from about 40mph onwards getting louder with speed, however the noise is still there if I dip...
