Re: My Astra Might Be Toast

Is one of your wheel bearings gone bad? Crazy Spedo / Tacometer is one of the signs...you can search for it on here.

Re: Astra No Start - NO power to fuse or starter

I know you said battery voltage was 12.5 but did you do a load test on the battery? When mine died it did pretty much the same thing - no sign of trouble and then one day after gassing up it...

Re: Electrical Gremlin

Hmmm odd behaviour for sure on the fog lights. Wonder if there is a water intrusion issue somewhere or prior to you owning it.

If you don't want to track it down yourself there are usually...

Re: Looking for Axel shaft

Assume you tried a local GM dealer?

It does show as discontinued on a number of re-seller part sites online. I do see several of them on eBay that are still available.

Re: Tpms sensors on after market wheels

Similar experience here - I have yet to replace the TMPS sensors on either of my vehicles, but I do run with two sets of tires and TMPS on each summer / winter for the last 4 years or so.

Re: How to change engine air filter Saturn Astra xr 2008?

80,000km as per the manual.

For fun I've attached a pic of the Outlook's last filter change at 160,000km. Comparing the two perhaps not as much of a difference except less larger items trapped...

Re: How to change engine air filter Saturn Astra xr 2008?

Completed my first engine air filter change last weekend @ 80,000km. Before and after pics attached.

Re: Spark Plug Change for Astra

Nearly 4 years and 40,000km later time for spark plug change #2.

Second set seemed to be a little better than the first - less blackened from the looks of it and worst gap was .043.

Re: Astra Caliper and Bracket Bolts Torque spec

I'll head your word of caution but I think you are off by a factor of 10 on that conversion. 4mm is .15625 inches or 5/32.

Did I remove the pads? No but I measured them on top and bottom from...
