I will do, been doing it last couple days and this morning nothing! Still going to take it in and hopfully it does it when i need it to. Do you get the vibration through the gear stick aswel?
Yeah I can feel the creaking though the gear stick when pulling away in 1st. :cry:

Another 1.4T owner here with the same problem. I thought that it might be a loose heat shield initially, but dealer claims that they couldn't replicate the noise.mits been doing it on and off since last September.
I forgot that vx adjusted the heat shield on mine too to fix this, but wasn't fixed.

Seeems to be weather related for me, when it’s colder it does it like mad, but when it’s warmed up or the temps warmer it happens less.

So they think it's an issue of the engine end of the gear selector then. Hope that will fix it for you, I'll keep an eye on this topic if you'll update it if it's fixed then i'll throw mine at vx once again lol thanks for updating.

That's just a common squeaky clutch spring and yes they will grease it to stop that squeaking when you're pressing/releasing the clutch, this topic is more about a creaking noise from underneath the car / engine bay when the car reaches the biting point.

Well its almost been 4 weeks, but it done it again this morning not as bad as before but can still hear/feel it. So im not sure what im going to do might leave it and see if it gets worse instead of just taking it back and saying it doesnt do it all the time

So, how's yours now? :D

Mine is actually getting worse lol I like actually hate this car tbh.

I used to feel it/hear it only pulling away in 1st then again in 2nd but now it's evident through all the gears after the clutch is loading up.

I swear it's something like a top mount or another suspension part as I swear I heard some creeking when turning from left lock to right lock. :-(

I'll keep waiting until it's totally unbearable cause it's a total waste of time giving it to Vauxhall while it's "not happening all the time" and that they don't give a shit.

This creeking noise, these wheels droning noise at any speed, contact rattles/squeeks in the doors and panels *sigh* honestly want to set this shit car on fire. even more so since it's been in to Vauxhall 3 times and nothing got fixed :cry:
