I have a Vauxhall Tigra convertible 05. I like this car so much but since I have encountered problems it drives me mad. My problem with this car is the driver`s side window is not going down anymore. I would appreciate if you could give me an idea which part needs to be changed?

In addition to its modern powertrain, the Black Gold-painted Nova 2.0 is home to a host of contemporary hot-rodding touches, including a billet aluminum grille, narrowed and tucked bumpers, shaved door handles with electronic latch releases, custom 17-inch Z/28-style wheels – in a satin bronze finish – and four-wheel disc brakes. The suspension has been updated with height-adjustable air bags, front and rear, and a triangulated 4-link design in the rear.

My Retractable Roof has stopped working, at first the acoustic signal sounded, and after about two or three seconds the roof would open, closing wasn't a problem, now though, not even the acoustic sound !!! If the motor is broken, how much will a new one cost? If indeed it's the motor that's at fault?

Take the turbocharged drivetrain from the modern Mustang or Camaro and drop it into its counterpart from the late 1960s – and only then will you have a true competitor.

It could be the connector underneath the steering wheel cover. Has it ever come on when you bop the top of the wheel? Either way I`d get it checked out. Don't let them convince you to replace the airbag, it`s probably just a dusty connector. Ellen from Cheshire

Go to the owners club website. You need to register - there is no charge. There is a simple re-set for the condition you describe, using the key. Worth trying this before spending any money. Mike from Oxfordshire

Robin it could be the steering rods, they can tend to go on Tigras. When I bought mine the mechanic told me he had to replace one it was done before I bought it, it`s around the £100 mark eleanor from County Antrim

your lights switch which you rotate - is also a press in and out switch . press it in if you want cabin light on permanently - depress once again for normal operation i.e ligt on for 15-20 secs when entering or leaving car Ronnie from North Ayrshire

I have a Tigra convertible 56 plate. Recently the steering feels very stiff turning to the far right and far left. Could this be that it needs steering wheel fluid? Many thanks

Of course, too many body modifications would have done the car an injustice in my opinion, so I applaud the designers for keeping body modifications minimal.

check the fuses first!! Wind down the passenger window & listen to the noise the window motor makes. Listen to see whether the drivers side makes the same noise, if it does but the window does not go down you need someone to look at the teeth on the motor or whether it has come off the runners. (probably needs a second hand motor or new) If no sound the motor has failed. robin from West Sussex

It could be the reversing relay mounted on the motor. I documented a repair a few years back on when my wife`s Tigra window wouldn`t go down on the site http://www.tigraclub.net This site no longer seems to be up. I probably have the pics I took from the repair if anyone is interested. It`s a straightforward repair if you can solder/desolder. Tom from Clare

Hi, it sounds like your gear linkage could be worn out. It is quite common with the Tigra/Corsa. You can pick them up on ebay for around £20 then just get a garage to fit it. graham from Lancashire

I had the same problem. No beeps or anything. I bought an aftermarket diagnostic kit and error code said right hand trunk lid locked/unlocked contact sensor signal not plausible. Turned out all I needed to do was unplug the connector at the bottom of the mechanism underneath the hinge and clean it. Error went away and hasn't come back since. Vauxhall wanted to charge me over £1000 for various parts and over £500 in labour. It took me 10 mins Ellen from Cheshire
