I had an Astra actuator repaired by BBA Reman, used a vacuum pump to bleed the clutch but had to do it several times before it started and drove properly.

So if the F is an active alarm, what is the actuator real position against the desired position?

i dont have opcom or tech2 to find that out, waiting on someone for that, i only have delphi and wurth, both of which can only do the bleed

So what you hope to achieve from this forum, as this diagnostic has to be done on the car, suitable diag tools, multimeter, etc.

I've changed these repaired units before and everything has been fine, was wondering if anyone else had this problem. But thanks for your helpful advice, i'll take it on board cheers

You could have blown mosfets on the pcb, seen a few. You could have corroded connectors. You could have bad pressure pump not doing the job. Hell, you could have a broken clutch plate / disc. Or a leaking receiver. You see my point?

I'm very aware it could be a number of other faults which is what i was asking,to see if any other members had similar problems. several points you have raised have been checked, several others will be checked when i borrow the opcom. Don't really see why your so negative, Hell i only just joined !

Not unknown for "repaired" actuators to be faulty unfortunately.

I think your going to need to do the Touch Point adaption to sort this out, unfortunately that needs Opcom/ Tech 2 so you may need to wait until it arrives.

so, bled clutch again with opcom, will no not delete codes and gear relearn timesout and touch point says sequence error, i believe the repaired actuator to still be faulty. Company that repaired it insists its down to incorrect learning, but it will not remove the actuator fault code?

Try keeping the brake pedal pressed when attempting the relearn, it often helps.
But unless you are using firmware 1.39 and software version 100219a you will have issues. Anything with firmware 1.65, 1.70, 1.78, 1.9, 1.95 or 1.99 are all fake.
