    We have a 2006 Vauxhall Vivaro and the catalytic converter has cracked 3 times in the last 18 months. It first happened in September 2019, we got it replaced and then it happened again 7 months later. The guys we took it to said it could be because our motor mounts were worn down so we had all...

    Hi folks. First timer. Have colour matched white wing mirror covers and want to replace for black. I bought them and I can get the main mirror off but I can't see how the covers come off. The holes/locators on the new ones make it look like they take screws but I can't see any. Do they pop...

    Recently purchased a 2010 Vauxhall vivaro with a speed limiter (70mph) looking for advice on getting this removed? Also will it do damage removing it and exceeding this speed as it has never done it before? Thanks
