    Hey guys, new here! My Astra GTC 1.4T (38000 miles) has developed a rhythmic squeak/chirp sound when accelerating. It’s like a ‘squeak-squeak-squeak-squeak.’ The noise only happens when I press the accelerator when the car is in gear and moving. It usually happens in higher gears at lower rpms...

    Hi guys, I've recently had my ECU replaced and the traction control and service ESP light have come up on my astra GTC 2014 1.7 diesel. I took it back to the garage where they reset the ECU and the faults disappeared. I then noticed my cruise control stopped working, so I took it back to them...

I've just bought a five year-old GTC that has a CD 400 plus infotainment system that seems to be encountering an intermittent problem – can anyone help? Whenever I first get in the car, cycling...

    Hello, I’m a new Vauxhall and Astra driver and recently bought a 3 year old GTC. Loving the car, but I’m having an issue with it which is really becoming a bit of a bug bear. Not every time, but most of the time, when I pull up, park the car, stick it in Park, pull the handbrake up, turn the...

    My timing chain went on my 2013 GTC 1.4 turbo (33k miles). The check engine light came on a week before it happened and I was planning on asking my local garage to have a look at it when my MOT was being done a few days later. Unfortunately it broke before I taken it and I have had to spend...

    Hi. I want to fit a VXR style spoiler to my Astra GTC, which currently only has the standard one. After researching a little bit online I've found that these little triangle-like things need to be removed prior to installation. Any one done this before or have an idea how these would come off...
