Re: Brake Guide Pins "Do not reuse"

Presumably a franchised VX dealer. Doesn't make sense to skimp on brake parts. OK so just to answer this one as I managed to find out. What they're saying is that the mounting hardware for the caliper "should" be replaced. However the general consensus is that you absolutely do not need to unless t...

Mine was a rough idle only and all the lights esc / eml ....and it was the oil filler cap not on tight enough causing an air leak 😱
It was also suggested that I check this too but mine was tight, worth checking though if someone has an issue like this. Easy fix!!!!

Re: Engine juddering

Updating my experience.

I was just out of warranty (I'm a 15 plate - so an early car). It was my coil pack. Super, super easy sway. Did the spark plugs at the same time, £60 and half hour - problem solved.

Re: Warranty

Warranty would also cover the inevitable coil pack failure too...! Although this is honestly one of the easiest fixes in the world!

I have a 2015 1.4 SE that, aside from the coil pack failing just out of warranty has been perfect in the time I've had it (Feb 2018 - 22K miles - Now at 40K!)

Brake Guide Pins "Do not reuse"

Hiya,

Doing my first disc and pad change at the weekend. Just got the pads and discs... reading through the Haynes manual now and it says that "A new brake caliper lower guide pin will be required for refitting"

What is this and where can I get one? As I cannot find one on Euro Car Parts!

Cheers

Re: Fuel consumption

I get between 400-480 miles from a tank. 1.4N/A 90Hp.

So roughly 42 - 47 mpg.

Mostly motorway commute. 30 miles each way.

Re: Reflection.

I get that same reflection and the front dash mounted speaker grill too. Sometimes it's rather frustrating.

Re: Upgrading stereo in 2015 Corsa

Firstly you may well have issues with the R4 from eBay as it will need to be coded to your car...

Secondly I'd love to know what you end up doing because I have a 2015 too and would like Android Auto.
