    Default Strange noise "fixed"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmfcDeksgrA

    everyone whos listened to it said "turbo", so i bought a new one from the local vauxhall garage and the gaskets to go with it.

    stripped it down and i found i had 2 loose manifold studs and 1 broken, had to get a garage to take the bust stud out for me, new gaskets fitted, refitted the old turbo and its now fine.

    found out i have a massive restocking fee on the new turbo, so i took the old one off, fitted the new one as i wasnt going to loose loads of money on it so might as well use it.

    Ive deleted part of your message.. if you want to sell anything on this forum, you have to be a fullmember, and it has to be in the correct section.

    many thanks kenp, i'm glad that finishing school wasnt wasted on you.

    i'll log onto paypal later when i get home have cough up £15 to the forum, as this is the price it costs to be a full member if anyone else was following this post and wanted to know.

    Anyway, i hope this post will help others out as i'm sure i cant be the only one with a vectra 150, 1.9 with this noise.

    might save someone else buying a turbo.
