  • Holden Astra 2008: Can it use an alternator from an '06 model?

    You probably could, but before you commit I would line them up to make sure the 2006 alternator would fit the later model. If they do, and I expect they will, you should be okay.

    A ticking noise is often a sign of a problem with the starter solenoid. If it were the neutral start/safety switch, you wouldn't hear anything because there would no power getting to the starter.

  • Holden Astra 2008: What is causing a steering click?

    Sometimes, when a car sits for an extended period of time, the oil can drain back down into the sump from the top of the engine. If that happens it can take a few seconds for the oil to be pumped back up to the top again, and in that time the lifters can rattle. I would guess that’s what it is, but if you are concerned about it have a mechanic check it.
