    Squeaky Drivers Seat

    Hi,

    I got my new Astra yesterday and i've got the most hurrendous squeak on the drivers seat, now i've done some searches on here and found that it is quite a common problem, thats something i suppose, but before I take it in to Vauxhall to be fixed does anyone know what the problem actually is and how it is fixed???

    I think it's something to do with the adjustment brackets. I had the same problem and fixed it myself by taking the seat as far forward as it could go and then ramming it back.

    Never squeaked since.

    Update - its been with VX for the last 2 days, they've replaced the lumbar support in the back of the seat and are now waiting for a new seat base to come so they can fit that and cure the problem. I guess the seat was knackered. he he

    Couple of little annoying prob's

    Hi All,
    First time leaving a post, Hope you can help!

    1. Drivers seat squeaks, I see a few people have left threads on this but has anyone found a cure? Or has it been all garage fixed?

    2. My Glove box door is jammed! It opens about 2-4inch thats it (dont want to pull out of it incase I damage whats blocking it!)I can see in behind the glove box behind the radio (not sure if stereo cables are jamming it! new h/u recently fitted by someone else), Any suggestions?

    3. There is a small rattle from the engine at bout 3000rpm in the first few gears, any idea what this would be? Only done 50k km and not driven especially hard! p.s its a 1.6 petrol!

    Thanks Lads.

    Hi I have the squeaky drivers seat. This has been to the dealer a few times now and they have replaced the lumbar support which didn't work, now they've got me a new seat base which i'm now waiting to have fitted. Car is going in next week so i'll keep it posted whether it works.

    My sound sounds like its coming from the side of the seat nearest the handbrake, but if the seat base is faulty this could explain it because it connects to the back in some way.
