    Suspected timing chain problem

    You don't need to soak it in anything. Literally just press the end against a hard surface and it'll extend

    Astra g 2.2 convertible exhaust

    Vectra b split aircon connector

    Do you need the pipe with the valve in? Let me know if you do as I might still have one knocking around

    Treating the astra to this!

    I would be very surprised if this makes any difference at all, this is the same company that says their air filters give an increase in horsepower and acceleration. But each to their own :)

I removed the side of the centre console in the passenger footwell, and there was a cover that could be removed to allow access. You can buy a replacement cover that fits over the hole once you replace...
