Re: Shift boot replacement question

Indeed, they over-engineered the silly piece. It's as if BMW engineers got involved in the design process. :D

Re: How To - A/C Compressor Replacement and Refrigerant Recharge

Appreciate the tips. I believe the clutch was making noise for a long time, and one day just stopped working. Checked it to see if it was spinning, but was dead. So I'm leaning towards this being the...

Re: How To - A/C Compressor Replacement and Refrigerant Recharge

Sorry to revive an old thread, but it's on the same topic.

My AC went out and I'm thinking of either replace the clutch per the instructions by burgermeister, or just replace the whole unit with...

Wow! That's very cool of them.

Re: Shift boot replacement question

Perhaps it arrives anytime now. The thing is the other sellers didn't have perfect ratings either on delivery times etc.

The only thing I could find is this:

Seems it's sold as an assembled part. Part 93185666 and 5738040

The other option is to get the whole assy:...

Re: Hauling a motorcycle...inside the Astra?!

Nice! That's what I love about hatchbacks, specially the Astras you can pack a lot of things. :) Yeah, the motorcycle might not be one, but got a good friend who's willing to take me there. Cheers

Re: Hauling a motorcycle...inside the Astra?!

Re: Hauling a motorcycle...inside the Astra?!

Best I could probably do, is just take the wheels off. Then it's just the body of the bike.

Re: Shift boot replacement question

Mine arrived in a week or less. I was impressed how fast it arrived from the UK. Since you're in GA, it should arrive fast too since we aren't far apart.

Take some pics when you install yours :)

Re: Hauling a motorcycle...inside the Astra?!

I know, that upsets me so much lol. We def got the short end of the stick here in the states when it came to the Astra, and, well, pretty much any imported car.

I'll give this a try and see if...

Re: Hauling a motorcycle...inside the Astra?!

Ha! I didn't realize this lol. I've taken the seat off before to access the fuel pump (after cutting an access port). It's good to see the seats can be flush flat!

That's a good point about the...

Re: Shift boot replacement question

Cool, let me know how your order goes. The seller has some negative feedback, as well as positive, so it can be a mixed bag. Which boot are you getting? I decided to go with the basic one to see how...
