    Astra MK5 Knocking Noise

    Hello all,

    I've got an Astra SRI MK5 1.9 CDTi which has developed a knocking noise around the NSF. I had it in with Vauxhall and they changed out the Anti-Roll bar which helped a fair bit (in that I wasn't hearing the noise much). But it has since gradually got louder and now I'm thinking it is a Wheel bearing problem.

    I asked Vauxhall to give me an idea on cost if it was the wheel bearing and they are asking for 290 notes , does this sound right?

    Any reason why I shouldn't have a local garage sort it out for me?

    Any help/response would be appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Steve.

    Did they not change the drop links/anti-roll bar links? These are usually what causes knocking on the front of the MK4 and MK5 Astra.

    Wheel bearings from Vauxhall are silly expensive - £150 on trade club for me, £45 on eBay. Go figure

    Yeah, sorry, it was the Anti-Roll bar links.

    Damn! So 290 quid sounds about right then?

    Thanks for the reply!

    Steve.
