    confused New noise problem (For me anyway !)

    I thought I'd post my very first new thread (a problem) while there plenty of experts logged on

    In brief, a dashboard sound, behind glovebox area. Sounds very much like this one a few weeks ago

    - http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13440

    But it doesn't seem to be triggered off by anything to do with the heating and ventilation system. Mine seems to happen when I lock/unlock doors with the keyfob or opening doors and a few times it's just 'rattled' all by itself sat there on the drive locked up and with no-one anywhere near it. My neighbour reckons the central locking is on the way out. If there are 3 servo motors around this area, could one of them be for central locking. Any comments appreciated as my knowledge of anything under the bonnet can be written on a pin-head.

    Thanks

    As per the thread you linked to, sounds like the servo motor mentioned there.

    Ok thanks Duncan. Do you know if / why there are three motors..and is one likely to be linked to the operation of the central locking system?

    I'm not aware of any central locking servos in that area, they certainly won't be linked to the AC system. I think the mechanic's 'diagnosis' of it being the central locking is probably a bit off the mark.
