Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

There are also a few independent vauxhall parts websites, worth a google for. Vauxparts is one, but there are others.

Once you get the VX part code from somewhere, you'll be able to search for the part directly.

Mine had a Vauxhall 55215031 unit fitted c/w a FIAT 55225287 gasket - & currently been good for some 16K miles. The 031 I believe was 76 inc shipping off eBay around early 2010.

Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

I got a used one a while back that was cleaned up and have been swapping them every 6 months for a clean one. They get a bit sooty and start binding @ that time and I just switch it out for the clean one. No issues with drilled hole or anything else with using a used one. The other side doesn't get sooty but binds because of corrosion and lack of lubrication. I would clean your existing one, can't hurt to try, you can always order a new part later.

Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

Mine's been fine for 2 years since it was replaced. I'm hoping they've sorted out whatever the problem was, probably not though.

I gave the boost sensor its annual clean today - it was proper grotty. This is a very worthwhile 10 minute job.

I think the real problem is the crap from the exhuast going back round to be burnt again. Does it really take the gas from the exhaust before it goes through the soot filter (DPF)? It's a bloody stupid design.

Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

i think mine may have already been replaced in 2009, there was a green sticker with what looked like a month and year on it think it was 11/09.

wish my v5 would hurry up and come back so i can track down the last owner

Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

Its not the clearest picture but you circled the rubber hose(the smaller one) which runs from the bosch ap sensor above down to bellow the car to the DPF. If that is not attached there will be immediate fault light (i know I had it rotten rubber hose in the cat area too much heat). So if you have no lights then surely DPF has been tampered with (disconected). This does not have to be a bad thing, the car might run better without it but as with any used car I suggest you do a thorough exam @ a competent car garage to know what you are dealing with. As for the boost sensor it is slightly to the left and below the EGR sticking out with a black plastic loom with a yellow clip. Single Torx 30 bolt, pull out spray carb cleaner, don't stick anything into the sensor, just carb cleaner maybe soft brush if it is really dirty, return and tighten the bolt well. My screw fell out from engine vibrations because I only hand tightened it so I had to put a different one in.
