The Holden Astra was available in Sedan, Hatchback and Wagon versions with a 1.8 litre petrol engine. It has 16-valve units. A 2.2 litre petrol engine was introduced for both the Astra and Zafira. Models may be fitted with a five-speed manual transmission or four-speed automatic transmission mounted on the left-hand side of the engine. All models have front-wheel-drive with fully-independent front suspension, and semiin-dependent rear suspension with a torsion beam and trailing arms.
Electro/Hydraulic power steering (PAS) is fitted as standard to all models, whilst Anti-Lock Braking (ABS) is available as an option. Whilst the Zafira shares the same drive train and suspension as the Astra, the body is that of a Multi Personnel Vehicle (MPV). Not only does the Zafira have 7 seats arranged in three rows, it quickly converts to a spacious load carrier - thanks to the 'Flex 7' system, which allows the rear seats to fold completely flat into the floor giving an uninterrupted load space.
Both models have a full-sized driver's side airbag fitted as standard, and side impact airbags available as an option. Passenger's side airbags became standard equipment from January 1999. Cruise control is available as an option on certain models. For the home mechanic, the Holden Astra/ Zafira is a straightforward vehicle to maintain and repair since design features have been incorporated to reduce the actual cost of ownership to a minimum, and most of the items requiring frequent attention are easily accessible.
The aim of this manual is to help you get the best value from your Holden Astra & Zafira TS / TT series. It can do so in several ways. It can help you decide what work must be done (even should you choose to get it done by a garage), provide information on routine maintenance and servicing, and give a logical course of action and diagnosis when random faults occur. However, it is hoped that you will use the manual by tackling the work yourself. On simpler jobs, it may even be quicker than booking the car into a garage and going there twice, to leave and collect it. Perhaps most important, a lot of money can be saved by avoiding the costs a garage must charge to cover its labour and overheads.
The manual has drawings and descriptions to show the function of the various components, so that their layout can be understood. Then the tasks are described and photographed in a clear step-by-step sequence.
