    Default Grunching noise

    Hope you can help, I've got an awful grunching noise coming from the front of the car when its cold going over speed bumps, it sounds like metal on metal or plastic and is really bad as the front goes up then bonks down again, but its only for about 5 mins, when the car is warm i can go over the same bumps and its all quiet which makes me think it cant be suspension or bu
    shes, i've also had the rad mounts and front springs updated cos its an 03.

    I have this occasionally as well, in fact my last car used to do it as well.

    I asked vx to check it two weeks ago & they couldn't find anything wrong.

    I think maybe it's nothing to worry about & is some kind of build up (salt??) on the shocks as it disappears as you say when it's warmer.

    If in doubt though book it in, better to be safe.

    mine does it too, had the rad mounts changed, not them, I think it's anti roll bar bushes, but not too bothered as i get my new vectra in a few weeks.

    mine does as well, sounds like the shocks, as you say only does it coming down the other side of the speed bump.

    Its a VX thing, mines doing it. My astra 52 plate did it too. Its the front anti roll bar links. They were £14 from e-bay for my astra. Thinking of changing mine to sort it. It will get worse as it gets cold. Its the rubber in them thats all. Doubt they will need replacing, just really annoying, its loud out side too!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Thanks for all the replies guys, at least its put my mind at rest, probably get them done if it gets a lot worse. Just out of interest when did they sort out the problematic auto gearbox, i know they had probs with the early ones, just wondered if it was sorted now. Was thinking my next Vec will be an auto.
