Dulac In 2018 this forum was sold on to new owners who made significant changes to the layout, etc. without any warning. Prior to this the forum was pretty **** good in terms of helping each other out with all aspects concerning the Antara range. Consequently a group of regular contributors to this forum left and formed/joined another one. A shame, but there it is.

ChumBucket What are the signs/symptoms of these bearings wearing? My 2013 Antara is making a grumbling, kind of muted grinding noise under load.

Dulac I recall that Mr Harvey left Vauxhall earlier this year at about the time of the Peugeot announcement.

I see that, since this forum changed ownership and its format was 'improved', so many queries raised by owners with problems are going unanswered. Before the change, help from other members was more or less instantaneous. Why is this? I suspect that the core of those who offered advice to others has moved across to antaraowners.proboards.com as a consequence of the changes being introduced in a 'take it or leave it' manner by the new operators. It is a great pity but we are encouraged to "switch" in other aspects of our lives as consumers. The only consolation for troubled owners is that the people and their information and experiences are still out there if you look.

Good Luck

Please get in touch if you would like to support this
Hi GemUGE, please can you advise how you got on with GM? I have tried to email Rory Harvey but the email address bounces back. My Chevrolet Captiva 2013 model 2.2 diesel has just had the transferbox go on me despite there only being 40,000 miles on the clock!? £5,000 quote to replace it!! Thanks Karen

Dulac Thanks for that, Victor. You know the saying "if you don't do anything you can't make a mistake"! In fact, there is a similar sized 'flap' on the opposite side of the car, except it isn't a flap - its an air intake (I think) that is louvred. I wonder how many people are aware of the symbol on the fuel gauge of most cars showing which side the filler cap is on?
