Re: The last Saturn Astra owner.

Maybe original owner dumped the Fiat for the same problems. Regardless, losing the coolant like that can't be great for the engine.

Why not keep the SL2 until you find another Astra!

Re: Does this simple key-programming method work to add a 2nd key?

I might try that easy procedure you linked from markslocksmith . It is similar for programming a duplicate key on our Buick.

If that does not work I'm not sure it is super easy. A lot of the...

Re: The last Saturn Astra owner.

The Astra radiator for the Auto transmission cars is a disaster. It tends to blend transmission oil and coolant.

I don't recall seeing cooling issues with the manual transmission Astra. At that...

Re: Replacement Seat Cover for an XE

Awesome. I think Nicolas P removed some of the cloth covers so maybe he has some ideas for install.

Re: Front Struts and hardware availability issues

Goob installed the Bilstein B3 (38-163531) rear springs on his Astra.

Passenger's stock OEM rear spring was snapped at the bottom, with about a 2" section detached; that was easy to see. Driver's...

Re: Replacement Seat Cover for an XE

Looking at the dealer link above, it seems all XE and some XR come without map pockets.

Regardless, the two colors are pretty close so if you get the wrong seat cover it won't be the end of the...

Re: PCV Valve

You might also order a valve cover gasket while you have the valve cover off; it also is a popular failure item. Get a very high quality one, please.

Re: Replacement Seat Cover for an XE

I think 13217292 shows code PHQ and shows "Silver Charcoal"; both indicate that is for the XR, unfortunately.

I suspect you need the code PFM showing "Charcoal" for the XE. Maybe this helps

Re: Wiring near valve cover

That wiring loom on the top left of the cover might go to the exhaust cam actuator solenoid. But I think there are more wires to another sensor also. I can't confirm right now.

My buddy has an XR and his cloth seats looks similar but seem better quality than our XR cloth seats. The silver has more pop than the grey in the checkered pattern. Both are door.

Re: Bumper replacement

Who would steal a bumper.

www.car-part.com has some bumper covers for sale. They also show a lot of Astras in junkyards that you can pick parts from.

Do you have any photos of that difficult connector? Or could you describe how it is and how to remove it?

I only remember it being very difficult.

Re: Hello! New Astra owner with a couple questions..

Check the emergency brake cable is not binding from internal rust; that happened to mine and killed the left rear pads.

2 of the bolts take a lot of power to remove!
