Re: steering wheel shake when slightly turned at highway speed

Sorry I did read that you had lane departure off after I posted. Try it with lane departure back on and see if it's similar feeling or not. To be honest you're going to have to take it to Vauxhall, should be under warranty anyway. Sensor or steering motor are most likely. Post back when you get a di...

Re: steering wheel shake when slightly turned at highway speed

Sounds like the feeling you get when the lane departure is on. Might be related to that. Dodgy sensor? Try it while indicating, if it goes away then that's a starting point. You can turn the lane departure off by pressing the button. Interesting problem which I'd get checked sooner rather than later.

Re: Where is the obd2 socket on my corsa

Think it's in the glove compartment. Maybe behind a hidden flap.

Re: Child car seats

Hi, I bought the Cosy N Safe Nevis group 0/+1. Used it in the back seat rear facing, until bigger, now use in forward facing. Good thing is the head/seat liner which can be removed when required as they grow. Used behind passengers seat in a SRi but front seat can't go too far back but still plenty ...

Front windows not closing.

Hi, Anyone had a problem with the front electric window, in my case, not closing. Needs to be manually assisted to get it to close. Like it's come off the mechanism. Will work for a few cycles then doesn't work again. Tried lubing the running channel but no better.

Re: Do I need a faraday pouch?

I'd say there's no need as key needs to be detected inside car. Faraday would stop that happening...unless I'm wrong in that assumption. As for keyless...it doesn't work anyway even when you do have it.

Re: Steel Wheel winter rims.

The covers I fitted were from a site called Taunton trailers.co.uk item No. 2687810004 Al-Ko 56mm hub grease cap. I tried cheaper plastic ones but they came off when driving. You'll still need to trim a bit off the retaining clip but after that they're a good tight fit. I didn't fit tyres to rear so...

Re: Steel Wheel winter rims.

Right I'll answer my own question. I've fitted 16" steel rims. ALCAR 7493 with 195/55/R16 winter tyres. Not plain sailing though. One alloy was stuck on due to corrosion, so get your copper grease smeared on now. Had to fit covers over the now exposed wheel bearing retaining nuts but even that ...

Re: Ambient Light

Can't recall seeing any lights in the door pockets. Only ones I think are at your feet and in the centre console bin just under the dash. Can be set/controlled from the Info panel. Will look again tonight...got me thinking now.

Re: Corsa-e key fob locking issues

Re Previous. If it happens again..and it will. Go to the boot with fob in hand and open it with the finger touch button. Should open car and be fine till next time.
