    Where I Park I Gotta "Claim" A Kerb To Get Parked...

    So Noticed Other Day Tyre Could Do With Some Air...

    Went To Garage And There Was 26 In Front N/s...

    So Guessed And Put 38 In Both Fronts lol

    Could This Cause Steering To Feel Dodgey ?

    Would`nt Say Power Steering Was Conking Out...But Feels Light/Heavy/Light/Heavy..Kinda Stuttery/Jittery...But Not So Heavy That Power Steering Has Packed Up

    So This Could Be More Fluid Realted Or Summit Rather Than Pressure ?

    Tam on the 1.8 its behind the engine on the bulkhead, white bottle, black screw top.

    No manual? Heres the online one for you

    https://www.vauxhallproductforum.co....icles/2217.pdf

    225/45 17 are 35 front 38 rear(eco setting)

    Neverlandandy told me that as a general rule of thumb multiply the wheel size by 2 and add 2, so thats pretty much spot on as per the manual.
