Hi guys,

Just bought a second hand car but now realised i few of its problems, both quite simple if you know how but i dont so vauxall are charging a lot :)

The first problem is the indicator stalk it too loose and justs flicks down and up randomly, Vauxhall quoted me about £70 to replace that.......i know its very expensive but dont know anyone else local who can do it?

The second problem is the right mirror its electric but it has popped out a little and doesnt move in all directions so i think it needs popping back in if thats the case they said they would do it for free its just the stalk im looking for help with.

Thanks

get a new one from scrap yard and replace it,what kind of car is it?i know what you mean about vauxhall been dear,some garages dont touch them they just tell you to go to vauxhall to get it done

vauxhall is always expensive,what me mam does wiv her car is her mate works for vauxhall and if he is not bust he will fix me mams car for pennys after work,any garage you go to would be lower than vauxhall,the stalk would be easily replaceable by yourself and if you couldn't fix mirror on yourself you could go to a salvage yard and buy one cheap end fit it,some salvage yards will help you fit things if they aint busy

wow i didnt know that mayby its worth going to a salvage yard see if they can help me fix the indicator then and possibly the mirror will save me 70quid towards the service

Try these garage recommendation websites i've posted below. A decent garage will be able to repair the mirror in seconds (Vauxhall mirrors are renowned for popping out of the bracket). And the stalk shouldnt be more than 15/30 minutes work either. A decent friendly garage will happily guide you through this work for a competitive rate......forget main dealers if you want value for money.....good job they'll do hopefully....but not value for money.
