    Default A couple of problems

    I have a couple of new problems developing with my car, so any advice is welcomed.

    Firstly, the radio - ccr 2006 - seems to have a very poor radio reception on nearly all stations, the RDS is constantly trying to change the frequency and just doesn't get it right! My last astra never did this, is it a common or not so common fault slowly developing before me??

    Secondly, When changing from second to third the gearbox feels notchy, as if its not all quite ligned up. All I know is its worse when cold but does not go when warmed up, just gets better. The other changes are fine, forth to third and third to second. Just when changing up......

    Are these things I should worry about or try to get checked?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Try tightening the ariel, sometimes works loose, dont go mad with it though.

    Gearbox I'd say is fine, oil is cold and they do notch a bit, and overall it's not the smoothest box Vx have made.

    pass on the 1st as i'm an ICE numpty..

    the second one i'd get checked, they are notchy boxes, but it may also herald the start of trouble..several members on here have had their gearbox's change because of poor gear selection..

    Changed from an Astra to a Vectra with a CCR2006, same as you. Radio reception in the Vectra is nowhere near as good as the Astra, seems to be a common 'fault' there was another thread about this a while ago with others agreeing on this subject.
