    mines not come loose, but mine does creak real bad, as if something is not as tight as it used to be, been meaning to check on that for a while actually!

    re: seat probs.!!

    Yes, my car has exactly the same problem - fine most of the time but drivers seat moves when going over hump-backed bridges, etc. Was 2nd hand Network Q when I got it and not recognised as a problem when I took it to local VX garage (hem, hem...) to check).

    I checked the seat fixing bolts and it was fine, it's something to do with play in bushes in the height-adjuster mechanism (I'm guessing yours is height-adjustable too). I think it goes away as a problem if I crank the seat to the bottom of its travel, as low as it will go, but that's unfortunately not my driving position.

    As my car was ex-motability I figured the driver's seat might have had a bit more wear and tear with the extra leverage on it so I swopped the front seats for sports seats from a scrappy. Guess what? The driver's seat has the same problem, hurrah!

    I just ignore it now I know it's not loose bolts and Vauxhall don't care but it still bugs me. Have had a look to see if I could replace some bits but as far as I can tell the entire seat adjuster mechanism is one Vauxhall part number so I daren't even think of the price.

    If anyone can suggest a (cheapo-replace-the-bushings) cure, I'd be interested too.

    Don't all Astra seats wobble? I thought that was a standard feature.

    Well mine is still under warrenty so they can put a new one in there if they have to...it's bloody annoying getting out of the car all the time and the dropping back down. :x
