Re: Exhaust manifold/Upstream cat replacement

Astra08,

I don't see any Exhaust Manifold listed on RockAuto under Astra, what is the part number? It would be good for future reference!

Thanks,

Re: intake manifold tuning valve issues

Can you take a picture of the valve? I'm not sure which part it is.
Once I see it, I would be able to look to see where it connects.

Re: Loss of power at 4500rpm / Various fault codes

Did you replace the LF hub bearing prior to the ABS Control Module? Obviously that wasn't the main issue, but was wondering how difficult was that job? And what differences did it make?

Re: Bilstein Shocks and struts

Mashinenbauer,

What were the Bilstein part numbers for your rear shocks and where did you order them from? Just curious... It's been difficult finding Bilstein parts for our cars here in the US....

Were there any signs that your upper strut mount was bad? Any clunking sounds? I'm thinking mine might be bad. Any pictures of your broken upper mount would be appreciated.

Wondering how your strut replacement went?
Did you use your HF Impact wrench to loosen and tighten the nut on top of the strut? If it worked, I'll go pick one up.
What did you use to...

Re: Looking at buying an Astra. Thoughts?

Get the VIN of the car and plug in at this website:
http://www.saturnforum.com/forum/vindecoder.php

It should tell you if it has the sports suspension or not.
