Where do you wire the power cable in Corsa?

to wire it through a corsa, strip one end and connect to sub or amp, then the other end runs through the car. unscrew the glove box and wire it through thegrommet behind the battery under the bonnet to the positive terminal. Fuse connector half a meter down the wire does help the sub or amp to cope with the current and lessens the chance of blowing your sub

How to remove the spindle from a set of headlights on a corsa sport?

Not quite sure what you want to do.I'm thinking you want the servo motor off? The headlamp needs to be removed after setting to lowest position on the load leveler switch.Twist the motor to the left to release the body,then you have to pull firmly to get the operating rod to release from the ball socket on the lamp. You may have to pull hard and try to pull straight so you don't bend the rod.Before refitting,grease the ball joint and then firmly push to relocate the drive rod.Twist right to refit the motor.Hope this is what you need.

Odometers

How would you adjust the odometer on a 2000 model Holden Astra?

ILLEGALLY

It can be done if you possess specials electrical/computer equipment. There are web-sites offering this as a service. I will not link to them as it is generally only done for nefarious purposes (winding the mileage back to make the car sell for more).

However it is not actually illegal to adjust an odometer in some jurisdictions, as there is always the possibility of buying a second hand instrument pack/speedo and having the mileage reading on it altered to match the actual on the car it is then fitted to.

On most cars, you cannot change it without some special tools ... or something. However, when the speedometer fell of my 91 Toyota tercel (I mean, serously, It fell off!!!!) I took off the wheel, the dash cover, and then broke the side of the plastic cover to put it back on. I could have adjusted the mileage from there, but at 149000, it didn't seem worth it. And its highly illegal.

(the above would seem to refer to older vehicles that had a mechanical odometer that could easily be changed using a small screwdriver to move the wheels, rather than more moden LCD speedometers that were developed to prevent this.)

Can a DIY change the windscreen on a 1996 Vauxall Astra and how?

welll if there is rubber around the window u might do it but hard if its bonded u are at nothing take my advice get it done the labour is only about 50euro Yes This Is Correct. You Can Change A Bonded Screen DIY But It Does Take A Lot Of Care And You Need The Right Tools. Damage Can Be Caused If Removed Wrongly. Same Applies If You Use A Second Hand One You Need To Clean The Old Bonding Fully. It Would Be Quicker And Cheaper To Pay The Excess On Your Insurance And Get A Pro To Do It.

Alarm Systems
Vauxhall

Why does my Vauxhall vivaro van alarm keeps going off?

It is possible that you could have something hanging like an air freshner and when a vehicle goes past, the slight movement rocks it and the sensors detect it.

Also another problem with the vivaro is the sliding door doesn't fit home correctly on the light switch (a small piece of sticky back foam is usually enough to extend the pin switch), obviously disconnecting for a split second will be detected by the alarm due to the voltage drop on the light.

Also if your battery is old or the connections on your battery are poor, this can also create a fault.

Try switching off all of your courtesy lights regardless of door condition and if it solves it, you know that it is one of the doors....in this state you would only have alarm protection in the cab from the sensors (only applies if back is separated for tool area) ie tools not protected

Timing Belts and Chains

How do you change the timing belt on a Holden JE Camira 2.0L?

The Gregory's service manual available at librarys in Australia or places like super cheap auto etc have detailed how to change the timing belt.

I recently shaved the head and replaced the head gasket along with the intake and exhaust gasket, and had to remove the timing belt.

-remove the plactic belt cover casing

-the top pully on the cam shaft has a notch which faces directly up, this indicates piston one is at the top

-the crankshaft pully faces to around 2:00 o'clock at a pin indicator on the engine

-take all belts in the way off

- slide the timing belt off, note it has alot of tension

-slide the new one on.

That's how id do it!

Note the Gregory's book may have more usfull advice

Mitsubishi colt czt adjust the handbrake?

Handbrake adjustment instruction for Mitsubishi Colt CZ2 2006 There is a rear cup holder behind the handbrake. get a hoover with just the hose attachment.. suck up the cover plate on the inside of the cup holder. this will reveal two star type screws.. (not phillips) simply unscrew these and the whole cup holder comes of if you gently pull towards the rear of the vehicle. you will see two cables linked by a floating balance plate. This in turn is directly linked to the handbrake mechanism. make sure the car is on a flat surface and in gear to prevent it rolling you can also put something to stop the wheels rolling if you want to be uber safety conscious next release the handbrake to the floor. finally, using a 10 mm ring spanner tighten the nut on the balance plate clockwise. !!!! Warning!!!! stop occasionally to check the handbrake is not too tight. four or five inches of travel on the handbrake when applied is ample. Also, when you think the adjustment is complete and where you want it, release the handbrake again and make sure there is a little bit of play in both cables otherwise you will be driving with the handbrake slightly on all the time...NOT GOOD!!! then do a little test drive... and hey ho! bobs your sisters brother. Hope this helped.

How to repair Astra seatbelts?

I hope you never have an accident in a car,but if you do,would you want to trust your life to an amateur repair on a seatbelt?Don't even think about it,buy new.

  • Most vauxhalls from around the mid-nineties had pyrotechnic (explosive)seat belt tensioners which activated like an airbag would to keep you in your seat.You need to know how to deal with these.Don't go there.

This Is True They Do Have Explosives In Them. You Need A Licence To Repair Or Remove The Pretensioner. It Will Also Fail The MOT If Repaired. A Deactivator Is Normally Attached To The Pretentioner By A Cable. It Is A Red Clip Looking Thing. Most Garages Take Them Off As They Loose Them.

Never try to repair seat belts, or belt locks. If it's broken, replace it. End of.

Of course, you can try to repair them, but I wish you best of luck when you exit your car through the windscreen at 30Mph due to a bodged repair to a non-serviceable item.

Is there wiring on a Dec 2000 Vectra B for front fog lights if so which ones?

You need to check a few things first: - 1) do you have a front fog light switch. If not you are on a non starter till you get one 2) Is there a space in the fuse box for a relay beside the rear fog light relay 3) If 1) and 2) are sorted then put a relay in the spare slot (you can use the rear relay as a temp) and switch the main lights on. Then press the front fog light switch. If you hear a click then you are half way there, if not give up the idea of integrated lights. 4) If you get the click and your model did not have foglights as standard then you will probably find that there is no wiring between the relay and the front air dam. Nice of them really. 5) although the mounts for front fog lights should be there any plugs at the foglight end seems to be a bit of a hit and miss affair. Hope this is of some use. Peteroadie

How do you change the side indicator on a 2002 Vectra new shape?

Think these are the same as on the astra.You need to be a bit gentle to avoid breaking the clips.Push the whole lamp(try towards the rear first)until the small "barb"clip clears the slot and allows the lamp to swing out at one end.Then the lamp will come free.Just pull out the bulbholder and replace the bulb.Its a 501 capless type.Then simply clip the lamp back in,large clip first.

Can anyone help you have a vauxhall cavalier 20 16v engine management light started to flash and now wont start any ideas?

reset the ecu and it will start do this by disconnecting the battery and unplug the ecu and wait an half hour so the ecu can discharge then reconnect and it should start what you may find the the car has a service limit ie so many miles before service after that it goes in to limp mode and then all stop. its an old trick but it does work.

If it flasehes when you turn the ignition on, and continues to flash, then i know on my astra, this is the immobilizer kicking in. Try a different key. if not, see your local garage

if the light is flashing then the system is not finding the "chip" in the key, has the key been dropped and broken recently, is it a new key? if it has broken recently then look for what looks like a chip of dark coloured stone and refit into key if you cannot find this then a main dealer should keep them on the shelf, but you will need the vehicle security number.

As said above, a flashing "engine management light" during cranking means the immobilizer system in the car does not recognise the immobilizer chip in the key, or does not detect a chip at all. The chip is about 5mm long, 3 wide, and 2 deep. In other words "Freaking Tiny". It's very common for them to fall out of the key if dropped, or when the key is opened to change the bulb/battery in the "torch".

It's also possible that there has been a failure in either the Fuel injection system, or in the Immobiliser system, but it's more common for the chips to fall out of the keys, as the chips are so small, most people don't notice them on the ground when they drop the keys.
