Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

On behalf of an acquaintance. Anyone know about Merivas?

2010 was the changeover year apparently and this is the earlier type. The forward sunroof is u/s, the Vauxhall dealership has disabled it and is pushing a new electronic unit for £400+ which apparently controls numerous other things too. I've experienced an appetite for unnecessary parts sales at GM garages (e.g. brake discs at the first service) so my first thought is whether it would be reasonable to take it to an indie for a second opinion.

Sounds like the equivalent to a Saab DICE. I presume it would have to be married to the car and that independent garages would have the Tech 2 since Vauxhalls are common. Reasonable assumption?

Can anyone tell me what the mystery electronic box is and whether I should be chancing an ebay second hand one? If anyone has the parts catalogue I'd appreciate the part number too. I believe its a 1.6 petrol.

Thanks - cardboardcutout
