    Does anyone know the sequence to enter service mode for replacing discs? I've seen videos for other models but nothing for insignia a. It's 1.6cdti 136, facelift and elite model if that makes any difference.

    Hi. The handbrake actuator lever has been sticking a bit so I tried to work the nut with a spanner to free it up, however I have been heavy handed as the nut and top of the bolt (the one that activates the caliper when the handbrake is used) has snapped off. My question is, is it possible to...

    any idea how much it would be to fix binding brakes? Don’t want to get ripped off as I’m a woman with no idea about cars Been losing fuel like crazy and had a friend of a friend fit me new brakes and pads, he said one side was binding a bit so he fixed the problem, driving all good and my fuel...

    This thread is split into two questions: first, my brakes are shocking. The braking power reminds me of a train, under emergencies, it simply does not slow down. I had a slight weeping from the clutch which helped bleed the brakes so it may or may not slow down. However, ever since the slave...

    So the Astra 1.6CDTi SRi went in for the Brake Master Cylinder Recall today. Wife is complaining that the brake pedal used to bite as soon as she touched pedal before Vaux got there hands on it today, now pedal travel is halfway down before brakes bite. She's not a happy bunny. Any ideas guys?

    Hi, my brakes keep sticking in really warm weather. So if the car is left most of the day and the temp outside is 20 degrees plus, the brakes release initially, but after driving for about a minute, the brakes stick on. They have also stuck on and won't release when pulling away. I will then...

    Hi all! Did the rear drums, shoes and adjusters for MOT not long ago. Car's done around 1500 miles since but has developed a strange creaking sound (sounds like when you've got a dry bush) from the read drivers side drum, when braking. Doesn't do it stopping with handbrake, only with pedal...

    Hi all It's only been happening these last few weeks but there seems to be a horrendous screeching noise coming from the drivers side wheel, it's hard to tell if it's the front or back. I think it could be something to do with the brakes. I starts after a while of driving around when...

    Hi A bit new this, my rear brake (nsr) was making a scraping sound so took the wheel off and caliper and removed the pads, found the pad had nothing left, so while the caliper was free I tried to push the piston back but I couldn't budge it, is this because I had the handbrake on or is it...

    Hi all, could I get your opinion? I know this may be the wrong section, however I couldn't find a more appropriate section. I recently had my brakes changed and wanted to know if this was a fair price?
