    It will be the door strap. I just had my passenger side one replaced. Not cheap, either. The solid metal strap itself was still perfect. But the plastic housing had worn away. So, a $100 part in the bin because of a 10 cent piece of plastic...

    Check the bolts are tight & then try greasing the strap mech up first, if that doesn't cure it then fit a new one

    change the pin that goes betwween the strap and the body,any slight play will cause this cracking sound.

    Too Right, Dez! Fifteen quid. Hmmm. Yep, A$100 - A$120 here. See, the 2003 CDXi (still not sure what they are called in the UK) in 5-speed auto cost A$50,000 new. That's up there with Audi A4 money. So, I guess the traders reckon it's an open slather rip-off. Plus, I think they only sold something like 4,000 of the 2003 Vectra-Cs in Australia (not sure if that's just the CDXi or all Cs in total). So they are relatively rare. I had already planned to buy parts from the UK in future. Like, fairly soon, the timing belt kit, water pump, oil/fuel/air filters etc. for the 120,000 km service. On that, can anyone tell me if the timing belt kits sold in the UK come with all the seals? Any other tips and suggestions? Please let me know. Cheers to All.

    What's the GM p/n for the door strap? Is it easy to replace? The clicking sound is probably the most annoying sound in the world.
