    Hi there, I've got my Corsa C 53 plate with the Z12XE engine in. The head Gasket has gone, but no massive overheating occurred. When the fault was found, i was towed home so no further damage could be done. I've had a few people look at it and had many different things said. One has told me that...

    A few weeks ago the problems began, my car would cut out after I had turned it off and gone back to it, after about 10 minutes it would start again. The problems seemed to get worse, I was at a local petrol station, when I returned to the car I could not start it, I got pushed over to the side...

    Hi guys, I need to be able to jack the car up on a trolley jack to enable me to wheel it down the street onto my drive way. Where is the best place to do this? Dan :)

    Hi, I need to attach my sideskirts and I'm using Tigerseal to do it, same as i did with my spoiler. But with my spoiler, I held it to the car with masking tape but obviously, the spoiler holds its self to the car with in reason so masking tape is sufficient, whereas the side skirts do not. What...

    Hi guys, I’m having a problem where my MFD fluctuates between 0 to -34 degrees where it then tends to settle. I replaced the temperature sensor behind the front bumper yesterday which worked again until this afternoon where it went back to playing up again. Anyone know what could be the cause...

    Hi, I can't lock or unlock my boot using the boot lock, the key just goes round and round in the lock and doesn't do anything. Is it just a case that I have a goosed boot lock and will need a new one or is it something simple to fix? It doesn't bother me really as the car is normally always open...

    Hi, my drivers side window goes down fine until a certain point (about 2/3 down) where it gets stuck and you have to really forcefully turn the winder for it to go all the way down. When you’re doing this, the window goes down very slowly and creaks as it goes but going back up it is fine, no...

    Hi, I need to clean my Vectra wheels before sending them off to the body shop to get refurbed but the muck on them is baked on, everything I have tried either does nothing or does very little. This is the sort of dirt that is on them... I have tried; > Detergent and water using a scouring...

    Hi, I've decided just to tiger-seal my spoiler on as I can’t be bothered to wait for my dad to help be drill the boot lid but I have 2 questions for those that have done it. 1) Do I need to remove the rubber seal that goes around the outside of the spoiler before putting the tiger-seal on? 2)...

    Hi, I went to Sainsbury’s earlier and there was a girl stopped in the middle of the car park with her hazard lights on so I stopped and she said her battery was flat. I was a little confused as her hazard lights were on but she said the battery kept going flat and asked if I would jump start her...

    I’m looking to get a new backbox but I don’t know which one to get, what are the best ones to get for a Corsa? I was looking at an Irmscher twin backbox but I'm not sure, good buy or not? Could people put up pictures of their exhausts on their cars please? Regards, Dan :)

    Hi i have recently bought a Corsa B and would like some help with the parcel shelf. It does not connect to the boot, so when you open the boot the shelf stays stationary. The straps are connected to the shelf but there doesn't seem to be anywhere on the boot where they can strap into. There are...

    Hi guys, occasionally when I get into the car it stinks of petrol, sometimes it is quite mild and other times it is really strong so much I get a bad headache when driving around so I need to sort something out. There are no fuel leaks I can identify and the gauge isn’t indicating a loss of...

    Hi, my local scrappy said I could have the STI front and rear seats from a 1997 Subaru Impreza for £100, bargain! But I'm just wondering, will they actually fit in my 1997 Corsa B? I’m assuming the front ones will with right runners and brackets etc but will the rear bench seats? Regards, Dan :)

    I really can do with your help please. I have just got a corsa and it seems to pull to the right really bad, enough to snap it out of hand, it is also very heavy steering and while you drive its shudders. I was told to jack it up and see if wheel moves freely as it might have been a Ceased...
