    complete nightmare day!! MOT failure too!

    Well i put it in for test today....

    Failed on a buckled alloy on the back, so ordered a new one.
    Failed on headlights!!!... cause they wouldnt make a pattern!
    And steering rack ball joint excessive play failllure

    So all that in mind, on my way home in the same day, my cars battery light comes on, starts making a whine, then my power steering died, then the EM light came on, then it started high revving!!!....

    Is this the alternator would you say???
    It did blow two bulbs within 12 hours the day before this happened.



    what great luck for the day!

    (oh and a random cat came into my house and pissed on my bag!) haha

    thats shit man.. i consider myself lucky as my aunty is the head of parts department at my local vauxhall garage and i take mine there for work, m'o't, services and that. Anything that needs doing gets done while i wait and parts that arnt in stock get special deliverys as they send the lil combo delivery vans out for me B-) lol

    it sounds like the alternator, my mums old cav did something similar, the alternator died, no noises tho, and the ABS, Airbag, EML lights all came on and went off at random, alternator replaced, all was fine, cost £10 from a scrap yard, try there first!
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!
    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!
