    there answear at vx is that its the front anti roll bar bushes?
    can some one inlighten me on what these are i google it and they say there £9-99 but vx wanna charge me £148 for them to be done? am i getting turned over.

    the second bit was when i brake i get like a vibration/grinding noise.
    vx said its fine but its not still does it and dont sound to good it sounds like as if you have no brake pads but hay is it just me?

    last and not least my spanner light comes on and off like like a yo yo so the code i got was P1191 they said it could be the fuel pressure regulator or fuel pump, as when i put my foot down and after 60-70mph i keept loseing power..

    if someone could help me with these as i no this is the best place to seek help and people on here explain in a easy friendly understanding so could some could spare me a lil help would very much be greatfull.

    if it helps i have a auto 2.2i elite direct on the 05 petrol

    Vehicle : vauxhall vivaro

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.9

    Year : 2004

    Default

    Their probably trying to charge 2 hours labour for the bushes aswel.

    Brake could be as simple as a stone or the disc backing plate slightly touching disc.

    And lastly as above it's not a Vauxhall listed code.
    But I'm sure for landrover it's an oxygen sensor. Fault code.

    Maybe try an independent garage.

    me car/spanner light has a mind of its own, I only have to change the brand of petrol and its on and off, BUT it says in my hand book," if this light comes on then goes off after a short while this is of no imprtance" so if it comes on and stays on,,problem,, or if car goes into limp mode,, problem,,, this daft light earns garages LOADS OF MONEY

    the arb bushes are nothing to change .which will cost you £10 for the parts and buy 1 fexi 10mm rachet spanner. there is a how 2 on here . the grinding noise could be worn down to the metal pads grinding on the disk and finally on here someone has put all the codes up and your P1191 means Key Line Voltage .

    i would check your code !!. what engine is it cdti or dti ?. because i know they both have egr valve faults .they get cloged with gunk . but for the diy person the dti is easy to do . because mine had the fault light come on and when i turned the engine off it went off. it ended up being the egr and inlet manifold cloged up . i had never done engine work before but i found 2 how 2's on here followed them and 2_3 hours later the job was done the car runs like new now
