Does anyone know whats the name of the bolts that hold the rocker cover gasket down ?
I want some new ones and have no idea what im looking up, when I look up rocker cover gasket bolts im getting the HG bolts and a bunch of others as well but not what im looking for.
Does anyone know where...
I have an issue here that I am trying to solve and I hope that one of you might have an idea about it because the local garage obviously doesn't.
So I got the car almost a year ago and there was a rattling noise in the front whenever I go through bumps or more rough road. It...
Anyone know what oil pressure on a 1.2 corsa is at 6k rpm. Read psi should imcrease by 10 for every 1000rpm so should be around 65-75psi I'm guessing. Also how well does a synthetic 5w30 protect at these engine speeds at operating temperature as from my understanding when constantly keeping above...
I have recently bought my first car and have only had for 10 days. When I bought it it all seemed fine (as far as I know) however 10days on and things are starting to appear and I am now worried to drive it.
First thing I noticed was there was no heat coming from the heaters, I have...
I cant find opcomusers.org any more.
Anybody knows whats up.
My corsa is at 125k miles, had a engine rebuild at 119k miles in November (previous owner didn't get timing chain done and I put off doing it as i was being lazy) other than that nevrr had a problem. Would you class this as high milage on a z12xe? What milage has your corsa got?
Hi there I've recently bought an ex Royal Mail 1300 cdti van as an mot fail, long story cut short I bought it to keep the miles off my 320d. Anyways travelling back from the Scottish highlands I broke down and overheated, resulting in a nackered engine and a blown cylinder head. I've located an...
New to the forum. Just had a new engine put in my corsa c, it has compression, adequete fuel, and spark, and wet pistons, and its turing over, but wont start? everything is connected. any ideas? Anything i should look out for?
Gents, any of you handy at changing your own blades?
Been watching a few tutorials online. Looks straight forward enough.
Does anyone recognise this set up? Is it safe for me go ahead and try and pop them out?
After driving and coming to a stop, I put the car in neutral, lift up the clutch and halfway through lifting the clutch there is a kick. Should I be worried? This is an old clutch, no idea how old.
Our Daughters 2004 Corsa C is our first Vauxhall in the family. I had a look at replacing her aux belt tensioner and note that the car uses e torx bolts as opposed to normal hex bolts. No problem I'll but a set to cover any job I have to do on it. Would this set on ebay cover most...
I've got a Bluetooth obd2 adapter and found codes P0106 and P0108 after the engine light (engine not spanner) came on and stayed on for a long journey.
Anyway, I've logged some data using torque pro on mass air rate, intake pressure, rpm, speed and egr commanded.

I have the standard corsa radio in my car, ideally I'd like to be able to get DAB radio and also play music from my phone through the car speakers. Am I best to get an fm transmitter, get a new stereo from Halfords or any other ideas?? If it's a new stereo is this a good idea?
I need your advise, I have a engine cam cover that is faded when I have used the sandpaper to removed the scratches and marks to make it go smooth:
This is what it was like before:
Sorry about the off topic post but I've just went out and bought a 2005 Meriva A 1.7 cdti purely down to adding another mini-me to the family (3 now) so needed something a bit bigger than my C.
Just wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to lower the rear middle seat. It's in a sort of...

Does anyone use one of these steeing wheel locks? Are they a genuine deterent to a break in?
I picked one up the other day in the garage thinking it might be worth the small investment. Anything that will help prevent a brek in and keep insurance costs down is good in my eyes.
Anyone have any...

my 2004 corsa is pulling to the left and a mechanic said the wishbones on both sides needing replacing.
I've been quoted £267 to replace them with cheap parts, or over £300 for better quality.
The same garage said £99 for labour only so i'm trying to find the parts online.
Hello, This is my first post. I have read the previous threads re ths issue and non of them appear to apply to mine.

I passed a 5 door corsa this morning, then wondered why did they bother with a 3 door corsa. It must have been cheaper and simple to have only one model of body shape .
Hi, my corsa c has recently developed a problem. The yellow spanner with the car stays on the display. I got two codes off the pedal test, 1120 and 1122. Last night my mate used his fault reader, but it said no faults were registered in the ecu. He took it out for a spin and said it was fine, but...
Hi, so Ive been driving my 03 1.0 corsa for a few weeks now and I've noticed that occasionally if I'm taking off with reasonable power or if I'm cornering a bit fast,and i steer full lock either right or left, it sometimes doesn't go full lock until part way round the corner then all of a sudden I...
I'v super confused if my corsa is a corsa c or a corsa d.

Recently my heating stopped working so I checked and realised my anti freeze was empty. Filled it and heating was working but not when idling.
Googled it and read about 'burping' the system which I decided to try - but when I checked the system was empty again.
Filled it and tried 'burping'...

Hi guys, I have a fast question. Can a faulty anti-rattle clip cause vibration on the pedal when breaking lets say above 50 mph? I changed the brake pads and it wasn't doing it before but I might have curved one of the anti-rattle clips.. :\

Bought a Corsa for the wife about a fortnight ago. Had an issue with the O/S front drive shaft. Got a brand new one so fitted this weekend.

Recently had a gasket change, water pump change and just replaced the oil (put in 5ltrs) but still having the same issues with white smoke from the exhaust hopefully someone has an idea of what this could be? Driving me insane now haha
I am looking for a set of good quality removal keys. I have tried, to no avail, using the cheap ones. I tried a pair(PC5-510) from Halfords but returned them as being useless. They are the wide ones with approx. 87mm centres. Do you know of any such supplier or have a spare set you...
Passed it's MOT yesterday, and this morning it let me down. The wipers moved about 2 inches, then stopped, dead.
Didn't have time to look at it and had to borrow wife's car. Hopefully just a fuse, but even that isn't great as it shouldn't have gone.

Hi guys I've had clutch done on the Corsa, when I turn ignition lights on the malfunction and service lights are staying on. Is there a fix for this??

Thank you in advance
In need of a pre cat lambda , but just wondering if anyone has any tips on witch to buy as there is so many difrent ones I do t want to buy something that's not Gina do the job
First post so I may have posted in the wrong place lol
Got the engine light on, not the spanner one. Reading the codes gives P0340, engine z12xe
What are the common causes for this? sensor itself? or wiring? or anything else?
Why would the engine light come on for the camshaft sensor? I thought that was emission related now.
