Re: 2 x Granvia problems - advice please?

Update; I've just noticed the front passanger tyre is worn on the outside edge (only 4 months old). There's also a vibration at around 70mph. As I mentioned before I had the tracking done about 4 months ago and the tyre pressures are fine. Hope someone can help. Cheers.

2 x Granvia problems - advice please?

Hi. My '96 4x4 Granvia TD has 2 problems which I need advice on - hope you can help; My steering is getting REALLY heavy when cornering. Weirdly it's heavier at higher speeds (opposite of what I'd expect). I had the tracking done 6 months ago and all the tyres are fairly new (and balanced). I had si...

Re: Good Vibrations?

Thanks for responding Rob. Vibration turned out to be tracking, screech disappeared on it's own and clunk was front prop shaft which eventually broke at great expense! Still, all sorted now. Cheers.

Airbag clock spring is dead! Help!

Hi all. The airbag warning light is on in my 96 Granvia TD and the horn's stopped working. Sod's law the Mot's due next week! The general consensus here seems to be that the clock spring (long ribbon cable connecting the steering wheel wiring to the dashboard) is broken. Mark at BBC Spares doesn't h...

Granvia Meet Up South East UK?

Hi. I wonder whether a meet up might be popular for owners in SE UK? It would be interesting to see other vans and meet some of the owners who occasionally give me a wave on the road! I'm based in Lewes, near Brighton. If anyone would be interested in a New Year's meet then I'd be happy to organise ...

Re: Can I drive my 4x4 temporarily as 2wd?

Thanks all for your replies. Mark at BBC Spares was brilliant in tracking down a used one even though it turns out they're like hens teeth! All fitted and normality has resumed.
