    Default Grating Noise When Cold

    Morning Folks

    First time on the site. Just bought an 07 Vectra 1.8 Estate and loving car already. Had 2 Vectra C models before and traded in a Zafira for this model, Everything fine apart from a grating /vibrating noise which sounds like its coming from under the front of the car. It only really happens when the car is cold and you are setting off up a hill and the noise is quite loud, going to book it in but would like an idea what it might be before I take it in.

    Regards

    Sounds like your brakes are rubbing.

    not the infamous dodgy 1.8 clutch syndrome is it?...the VVt is well known for it and VX have released a new 'overhaul' kit for the dealers to fit..

    Take it back and ask them to fit the revised clutch kit to it....if they don't know, ask them to call VX technical support.. they'll put them right..
