My door lock is very loose and rattles when I drive. It looks like there are two holes where the screws have fallen out. I did find one screw in the boot which very possibly came from the lock which I screwed back in but it just came loose and fell out again. Any advice appreciated.

The lock and unlock button on my key are warn and do not work. I have to open and lock the car manually. Every now and then I unlock the car and open the door and the hazards come on and won't stop until I close the door and lock it again. Why does this happen? It's happened on so many occasions where I need to go to work and I'm late. I cant afford a new car im only a student but what can be done to fix this quickly?

my Vauxhall corsa engine wont start. turn the key and it makes a low croaking sound and then nothing. ive checked the battery and oil. dash light up , but engine transmission light stays on and oil light. in the past couple of weeks, display wouldn't go off on radio, so it was draining the battery. got round this by taking out the fuse. are the two problems connected at all?

I keep getting water leaking into my drivers seat well, I thought it was coming in through the floor pan, but it's seems to be from behind the pedals possibly . Any suggestions as to how I can stop this ?

My daughter had this problem caused by a split in the bulkhead under the dash cost big bucks to repair. T Hoccom from Surrey

Hi Michael my daughter had this problem in her 55 reg corsa it was a crack in the bulkhead under the dashboard drivers side. T Hoccom from Surrey

I had this issue, it was a leaky seal on the brake servo inside the engine bay. Clearing debris and painting sealant over it didn't work so we ended up removing the screen wash and wipers, then the pedals inside to get to the brake servo and replace the seal and paint with sealant. It`s a big job and took a day, then a day in a garage to dry but no more leaks now. Vauxhall would have charged several hundred pounds, an internet how to and a confident person who's worked on cars a little could do it though. Brown from Gloucestershire

Katie, Kent

Vauxhall Corsa

Afternoon, my Corsa recently had an alternator failure on the motorway. The AA towed me back and the garage replaced the alternator and battery. Everything seemed fine, but I have now noticed that the A/C heating control panel is not working. I have no air control hot or cold, no rear window demister or AC. The lights behind the panel still work when my headlights are on. I thought maybe a fuse was blown when the alternator went, so checked all fuses and cannot seem to see anything wrong. Any suggestions?Kind regards Katie

Answer this question

Nanette Banks, South Africa

Vauxhall Corsa

My Opel Corsa will randomly decide to not idle at all, so it stalls when I brake, or it will rev around 3000 when I stop. While I'm driving it goes ok though. Sometimes it has no problem at all, it is totally random and there's no way to predict when it is going to give problems. This problem has got worse over time, started with maybe one episode a month, now at least every second day. What can be done?

Answers

Hi nanette - Get your battery tested - Same thing happened with mine because the voltage was too low to power the engine on idle so the car compensates automatically by increasing the revs. Peter from South Africa
