    Default a couple of little questions

    sorry if this is posted in the wrong section please feel free to move it admin

    i have a 2003 active saloon 1.8

    there are a few niggles i want to know if anyone has come across and if there are any fixes

    1. creaking bootlid when driving, at 1st I thought it was the rear suspension, after a full strip down and rebuild i found its the bootlid ive greased every movable part but short of removing i cant find the cause

    2. ive replaced the rear pads and everything is connected up as it was before but my hand brake (pretty sure its self adjusting) is no more and i cant find an adjuster

    3. more me been a tube but when replacing the rear pads ive sat the locking nut adapter down somewhere very safe, can replacements be sourced through vauxhall or is it a removal job as i dont want to damage my facelift SRI Alloys

    all comments gratefully recieved and feel free to rip the **** for being a tube

    1 . The bootlid catch on the car can be adjusted. My old DTi did this. Adjusted it down by about 2mm and it was silent.

    2. The handbrake should self adjust after a few hundred miles. Did you reconnect the handbrake cables to the calipers? There is an adjuster behind the handbrake. The arm rest needs to come out.

    3 . Already answered
