    Question A Few Quick Questions And A Request :)

    Hey Guys!

    Just got 2 quick questions firstly...

    Ive got an 2003 Astra 1.8 SRi and the window wipers are noisy as hell! they hit the side of the window and hit the bottom near the bonnet and it makes a terrible noise! has anyone else experienced this problem? it almost seems like the profile for the wipers is set wrong

    Next question is brakes! mine squeek when doin around 30-40mph almost as if they are rubbin and it drives me mad! pads are ok!

    Next question is ive just bout an Irmy grill and the bonnet lifting tab sticks out well far and looks stupid! anyone else fitted one and wot have you done about it?

    And now for my request can peeps please submit side on pics of there cars coz i wanna see some wheels examples and list sizes of wheels,tyres and how much its lowered

    Many thanks!

    Any input grateful!

    wipers sound like they need to be re adjusted.....any vaux dealer can do this or a garage for that matter...cost not alot i would have thought

    As for the breaks, there are loads of reasons why they squeak.......hot, grit on pads, harsh constant breaking, weather etc etc,......go to halfarts and grab some break cleaner, clean up the whole set up and just give a wipe over to get rid of any crap stuck on discs or pads.....

    for the tab out of the bonnet ....look on the how to's and there is a whole piece on how to adjust it so it does not stick out of the grille...........or.....i got some satin black hamerite and painted the arrow on it and you cant even notice it.........................

    hope that answers some/ most of the questions........................!!
