    Default Few niggly little things

    I bought a Signum 2.2 DTI 2004 Design with 97k on the clock but sadly no sat nav or auto lights or folding mirrors but it was £2300.

    Few problems and things i want to do as follows:

    1. Suspension problems were present at the time which a garage has said is the inner tie rod ends and anti roll bar d bushes.

    Are these easy enough to fit?
    -----------------------------------
    2. The boot will not open on any of the buttons in the car or the key, but opens fine from the outside.

    Any ideas?
    -----------------------------------
    3. It needs a new rear bumper, where would be the best place to get one?
    -----------------------------------
    4. Easy enough to wire in parking sensors on the front and back bumpers?
    -----------------------------------
    5. I want the sat nav which as far as im aware is the CD70 navi, is it simple to get the sat nav screen, aerial and the cd70 navi and swap them over?

    Can i add iPhone 4 functionality or Bluetooth whilst this is happening?
    -----------------------------------
    6. The seat belts don't retract properly as it seems they are a bit dirty, is soap and water the best thing to clean them up?
    -----------------------------------
    7. I didn't get a jack, where would be the best place to get one?
    -----------------------------------
    8. The locking wheel nut wasn't present with the car, i can't find a code in any of the books etc... i have, but i guess i can contact the vauxhall dealers the car was originally sold from to get the code?
    -----------------------------------
    9. I need two of the 3 engine cover bolts and 2 of the rubber grommets, best place for them?
    -----------------------------------
    10. Should there be foam between the engine and the cover on the 2.2 DTI engine? If so, where could i get this?
    -----------------------------------
    11. Gear stick and gaiter as well as handbrake are a bit mashed up, where would be the best place to get these?
    -----------------------------------
    12. Is it normal for the passenger side on a Signum to have a boot button? Also, the surrounding bit is scratched up, breakers for this?
    -----------------------------------
    Thanks,

    Andy

    1. Suspension problems were present at the time which a garage has said is the inner tie rod ends and anti roll bar d bushes.

    yes and yes , but can be a bit fiddly
    -----------------------------------
    2. The boot will not open on any of the buttons in the car or the key, but opens fine from the outside.

    Any ideas?

    the buttons inside and the one on the key only unlock the boot so they wont actually open it
    -----------------------------------
    3. It needs a new rear bumper, where would be the best place to get one?

    ebay or a breakers yard
    -----------------------------------
    4. Easy enough to wire in parking sensors on the front and back bumpers?

    yes should be fine with soap and water
    -----------------------------------
    7. I didn't get a jack, where would be the best place to get one?

    ebay or breakers yard
    -----------------------------------
    8. The locking wheel nut wasn't present with the car, i can't find a code in any of the books etc... i have, but i guess i can contact the vauxhall dealers the car was originally sold from to get the code?

    doubt they will have a record of it as the code comes in the locking wheel nut box and its fitted by the dealers
    -----------------------------------
    9. I need two of the 3 engine cover bolts and 2 of the rubber grommets, best place for them?

    stealers shouldnt be expensive
    -----------------------------------
    10. Should there be foam between the engine and the cover on the 2.2 DTI engine? If so, where could i get this?
    -----------------------------------
    11. Gear stick and gaiter as well as handbrake are a bit mashed up, where would be the best place to get these?

    stealers or ebay
    -----------------------------------
    12. Is it normal for the passenger side on a Signum to have a boot button? Also, the surrounding bit is scratched up, breakers for this?

    yes the passenger side should have aboot release button , ebay,breakers or stealers

    question 5: No its not that simple. Get a tom tom and a parrot kit. Much better than the rubbish cd70 as it doesn't even take full postcodes!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
