Vauxhall astra club 1.6 8v 2002

just bought this car and it came with a noise, if you move the steering wheel in left or right, short or long turns,there is a noise that sounds like the electric power steering motor,and the lights dim on the dash,i took the car back where i got it from as its still under warranty,they put a brand new steering rack and power steering pump on,saying this was the fault, sorry to say this did not sort it out it still does it,anybody no what might be wrong, would it help if i had the car put on an engine management check, would this find the fault as i think it is something electric due to the lights going dim on the dash. i have also put a new battery on just in case, it made no difference.

Tapping noise vauxhall astra club 03

More information would have been helpful...
Engine, gearbox, suspension???

The sort of tapping noise the smaller Vauxhalls are famous for are engine camshaft-related. If the noise tends to fade as the rpm is slowly raised it probably isn't really expensive or urgent yet.

If the noise becomes harsher (not necessarily louder) and more defined as the speed is increased then it is time to take it to the car surgeon for a second opinion, similarly if the noise is load-dependent.

The problem is in the loom in the steering wheel, it requires removal of the airbag and a new wheel loom to be fitted. The loom costs about £15.00 I think.

Idicator stalk on my vauxhall astra 1995


You evidently realize this is not the right category to post a problem for your automobile. You probably have a cross in the wiring in your steering column. This is where the two circuits for your headlights and left turn signal come close togehter. Maybe your foot scrubbed against some wiring and caused the short. Good luck.
