Knocking From The 'boot'?

25 February 2010 - 09:53 AM

Hi all,

I have an irritating noise coming from the boot (I think) I have looked at the obvious places - like boot shelf, spare wheel etc... But still there! I can't be sure it not coming from outside but then I'm not sufficiently well versed to know anyway :)

all help gratefully recieved!


Booster Worth It?

15 February 2010 - 09:35 PM

Hi all,

Got an 04 tdci 1.8. I'm a newbie and have heard the booster available on eBay - about £90 might be worth fitting. What do u guys think?


Update - Vibration Etc...

11 February 2010 - 04:47 PM

Got car back from garage. Said they had fitted a new back box, fixed loose DS Brake Caliper and balanced wheels.

Result NO MORE VIBRATION....Whoopy Fecking Doo!!!

Seriously, so much smoother now.

Now the bad news, I can still hear a noise invariabley when I turn but not exclusively then. Sounds like something that needs oiling/lubricating...like an old spring grinding away. Forgive my inadequate description!

Any advise would be great!


Stuck Bonnet...

10 February 2010 - 06:05 PM

...grrrrr! Got it back from garage and then £ecking bonnet is jammed shut. Also looks like one side of the bonnet is a little higher than the other - as if its shut on one side but a little open on the other...

...please tell me theres a quick fix for this?

Cheers in advance!


Few Newbie Questions...

08 February 2010 - 09:10 AM

Hi all,

First post so bear with me :huh:

Got an 04 1.8 TDCi. Love the drive apart from a vibration that is most pronounced under the seats (feel it in our Ar$$es!). Happens around 60-70mph.

Also a knocking (relatively quiet) coming from the back-end. Feels like the rear door but that seems pretty much locked down. If I rock the back of the car up and down I can hear a slight knocking.

Finally - thanks for beoing patient - can you tell me if the factory fitted immobiliser has an alarm as standard? I can lock/open the car ok, just not the usual 'bleep' I expected from an alarm?

Thanks again!
