    Common Faults On Zafira 'A'

    What are they? What to look out for? Getting a GSI soon and dont want to get a dodgy one!

    What about general parts that require upgrading to allow the engine to run more freely? Dumpvalve, Air Filter any other small bits?

    I think Turbo's are probably the most common thing to go, along with the Airfow meter (AMM/AFM). Turbos have been known to go at a couple of thousand, or last 70-80K, same for airflow meters .... luck of the draw I guess. Personally I wouldn't go for a panel filter as I believe that it's possible that the oil can mess up the AMM, I'd stick to the VX one and just change it often.

    Small bits you can do include the airbox deristriction and Veccy C intake pipe. The pipe is about £12 from the dealer with discount. Replacing the DeCat can help the exhaust gas flow, they cost between £100 - £200 depending on make.

    I'm sure other here will be able to come up with other suggestions.
