    Default Help with my vectra please crunch noise & more

    Help please, I am tearing my hair out with my vectra. I have only had it 8 months & have already had to have DMF/Clutch replaced costing £850. Now I have a few more problems & something seems to crop up every week. It's almost making me hate the car.

    1) The front suspension crunches extremely loudly when going over speed bumps. I have read some threads on this & it sounds like anti roll bar bushes. Any ideas?

    3) I need a new inlet manifold apparently as the drop links have fallen down? What will happen if I don't change this?

    Is it worth getting fixed or getting rid?

    The only one I can comment on is the suspension noise. It's been like it on mine for 3 years, it happens on my Lexus and it happened on my Galaxy, but in all 3 cases only in cold weather, it's fine when the car has been running for a few miles. Cheapest fix until Spring, turn the radio up!!

    1) Both my Astra and Vectra did this, but only when the temperature was under 8 degrees, and never after a run.

    2) What happened to 2?

    3) My Vectra's Inlet Manifold link had dropped off (do a search for swirl flaps), there is a cheap fix in the how to section, but it never seemed to affect the performance of mine.

    4) You've spent a lot of money on it so far. If you like it - keep it. Let's just say I've got a Toyota now and am happy as a pig in ****.
