    Few questions from a new owner

    1)
    iv had my astra cabby a day now and iv never driven an astra before, when the engines running if i rev it i can hear what sounds like running water from behind the dash/engine bay? the temps fine etc, it is due for a timing belt thou so is it the water pump i can here???

    2)
    Also the heater switch which directs the air flow, should it click in between air towards face and air to windscreen settings? or is the switch worn?

    3) iv noticed it has a bit of a flat spot in 2nd gear as im pulling off, i fixed this on my corsa with a K&N panel filter, would it work on the astra, its a 1.8 by the way, cheers

    mine clinks to the winscreen but seems really loose and you cant tell if its in positions, the whole heater panel feels abit sloppy, can you buy a new panel?
