    Vehicle : Vectra SRI


    Engine : 2.2 16V


    Mileage : 78000

    Default Should there be a bolt in here?

    Vectra making a noise occasionally, over bumps. Checked out noise coming from NSF, also have an oil leak.

    Removed front wheel and found this shining thread, with no bolt in it. I thought it was just the thread from the short bolt, but it does not seem to contect to anything and does not have a hole at the back.

    I am hoping someone can tell me what this is for.

    I can't see the other hole the bolt would go into, in the picture. Looks like it dropped 2 inches, at least.
    Would the gearbox still work ok, that much out of alignment?

    if it has dropped that far it won't be doing the driveshafts any favours .

    Try jacking the part that has dropped down, gently, until the holes align and then put a replacement bolt in
