    What is this noise all about?

    Hi Guys

    Got an astra sri 1.8 and everytime i get in it and start her up i hear a noise that sounds like the rear windscreen wipe? Its very faint and i think it only happens when i first start the car up and begin to drive. Its an 02 astra g sri 1.8.

    Also i was wondering doesnt the sri come with switchable traction control? Did any of the astras? i know there is a mod but i was under the impression mine came with switchable? - oh well.

    would be greatful for any help

    We had a thread about this in general discussion a couple of weeks ago. I think the final result was that some did and some didn't although it appears to be the older models like the 2.0SRi that did come with it.

    Surely switchable TC would be required for occasions where wheel spin is actually required >?< (Mick uses regular but effective "Dazed and Confused look")

    My 2000 'W' 1.8SXi has the switch! Funny company Vauxhall
