    problem with RARB

    Dunno if anyone else has suffered from this but have fitted my whiteline RARB twice now and can't cure it. I have an annoying washer rattle sound everytime i go over a bump. Also looking under the car it looks like the RARB is sitting on the fuel tank. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    Something's not right.

    Did you follow the fitting guide we did? http://www.astraownersclub.com/docum.../whiteline.pdf

    mine did this when i first fitted it and to cure it i slackend all the bolts off and pushed the arb to the rear of the car as the brackets for the front bushs on the car have slotted holes to allow adjustment then tighten it all up and see how it goes.

    Those figure of eight bits should be straighter than than, lose up the bolts and try and move it a bit, then tighten it all up again.
