I have a boot socket accessory wires hidden behind the right panel but no socket present. I also have a hole for a socket behind the centre console but on inspection of the inside behind the hole there are no socket accessory wires there to connect to. How much would it cost to get a mechanic to rig up a spur off the rear socket and feed it through to the centre console so I can have two working accessory sockets. Thanks

My heating is only blowing out on 4, we have changed the resistor pack and fuses, worked for a short while on 3 but not the force I think it shoud be, more like what it should be on 1 or 2. Also I`m sure the heating is only blowing outwards not towards the windscreen nor feet, I can feel a slight blow for the windscreen on 4 but it`s not a full force like it is in my face! Any advice muchly appreciated :-)

I have been told I have an oil leak in my car after service yesterday and was told it may need to have the gearbox removed to get at some part at the back of the engine to rectify. I placed cardboard under the car overnight but no evidence on there. My question is what is the problem here and if no evidence of an oil leak is it all gone and what would happen then?

Hi. I've had my Zafira for nearly a year and it's never let me down, runs fine and turntable every time until last week after we had to replace main h/lights. Dashlights are all fine but 4 times in this last week the starter failed, no click on ignition or noise at all. I had to bump start it as stuck with my sons. It can often start fine afterwards later in the day. I can't even find where the starter is nor a diagram or manual anywhere! Please help, maybe a loose wire or something? Cheers

I have taken the fuel pipe off and turned the engine over and am getting fuel so I don't think that is my problem but I have since been told to check the crank shaft sensor it may be not seeing the engine is turning over and will not send a signal to the ecu to fire a spark. john from South Lanarkshire

Hi, I have a petrol vauxhall zafira 03 plate and having problems when thd engine is cold (do it seems) I get in the car in a morning after it being parked all night and turn the engine on which is Ok but when I put it into to first gear and try to set off it slowly moves and I could have my foot flat to the floor and not a lot happens, I then put it into second and it moves a bit more but judders until the engine warms up a bit and still in third but after its warmed up it gets better and drives as it should. If I go in the car later ( an hour or so) it starts up fine but if I was to leave it a shift (8 hours) it does the juddering. Any ideas? Thanks Kerry

I went to Halfords to change the original stereo for a pioneer. As soon as l was driving away l noticed the pulling power had gone. I visited lots of garages. Finally l went to this garage where they told me you never change stereo on the old zafira (53 reg). He said the ECU goes through the stereo. And the engine is affected when you change stereo. Is it true? How can this be fixed? Its a turbo diesel.

Answer this question

Brian, Falkirk

Vauxhall Zafira

My 2006 Zafira 1/6 Life is showing a door open warning light on the dash. I believe this is related to the rear passenger side door as, when I first got this warning light, it would only go out if I slammed this particular door closed, but it is now on permanently. As I need to fix this my question is, where on the door is the sensor/switch that operates the warning light and how would I recognise it? I have read several posts on various websites about this and the information is quite confusing with some people saying the sensor is on the door stay (on the door side and inside the door, not on the pillar side) and others who say it's a micro-switch on the lock mechanism itself, so which is it?
