    Default Rear Shocker Fault

    Just sharing my recent problem with. For a while i have had a strange noise from the rear of my 2003 Vectra sxi. A noise that me and my missis have been calling the 'pigeon'. Obviously as it sound just as a pigeon does.

    After trying various common problems such as boot latch adjustment it turned out to be the o/s/r shock absorber. These are so easy to change and fairly cheap. Mine cost me £52 fron CES.

    I hope this thread will help someone as other post have helped me!

    Yes i would say it is the shockers probably the drivers side 1 but you best to change the pair. Like i said they cost me £52 inc VAT for the pair. If you have access to a pit it does make it easier to change them but not too bad if not, 2 bolts and they off.
