    Default Test Drive

    So, I've got a couple of test drives lined up for SRi 150's tomorrow. Anything I should look out for?

    the dmf will make a really loud rattle like a tractor, type in dmf rattle on youtube and i think there is a vectra c video on there, the noise will go when you press down on the clutch and come back when you lift back up so start the engine and try that, if there is an obvious change in rattle/noise then the dmf is in need of replacing.

    Inlet manifold is the uprated one on these models so that should not be a problem.

    Right so test drive done. There was a rattle and it sounded a little like road noise about cente in the car?

    Very happy with performance though was doing 70 and put the foot down and the acceleration was fantastic.

    Also noted the clutch was very light, is that normal?

    And lastly, and my only negative. What the **** is going on with the indicators!? Lol they will take a bit if getting to grips with!

    Touch the indicator stalk for 3 flashes for lane change changing etc. Push it all the way and thats normal operation.

    If the car is rattling and you think its the DMF dont buy it, its not cheap to replace.

    there was something up with it for sure, was an uncomfortable knocking if that makes any sense. However I got a feel for it and so I can compare going forward.

    What about the clutch though? Should it be so light, is that a car specific thing?

    lol you'll get used to them, they are ok really.....but ive found on the older C's the contacts get mucky/wear and it then becomes annoying as you push them for constant indication and they stop after 3 flashes.
