    Noises, rattles etc

    I'm having some issues with my astra. I was opening this new thread in order to discuss them and maybe find a solution or two. I hear noises from:

    • the suspension(flexride). When driving with low speed, i hear some mild deep noises when driving over bumps. At greater speeds it seems that i don't have them, or because there are more noises, i don't get to distinguish them. It seems that they are coming from the suspension, both rear and front. I said that the noise is mild but it's disturbing and gives you the impression of driving an old car.
    • the plastic cover above the instrument panel. It rattles in bumps especially at low environment temperatures.
    • the rear brakes (calipers) rattle when going over bumps. The service team has removed! the weights that have been put from the factory in order to reduce the phenomena. But still it rattles, and i don't know if removing those weights is the wisesest thing to do.

    Any comments, similar notices (or not ) from your Astra J would be more than welcome.

    The only noise I get is when releasing the clutch to begin march at cold engine.
    It makes a strange woooool. Then I put the second gear and it goes away.

    At warm engine it doesn't do.

    I have had 2 j's from a local garage as loan cars when my gsi is in for work. first one 60 plate.. rattly and knocky suspension and was pretty jerky at lower speeds.

    Have one right now 60 plate 2k miles. - silent on the suspension front. but difficulty selecting first gear every time.. if i bring the gear stick back to me slightly it goes it. the missus struggles with it.. she cant wait till the gsi is back.. cant say i am impressed with them although i like the look of them.
