Problems on my 1.9 JTDm
1) Lower turbo hose (common problem - rubs on a transmission bolt).
2) Anti Roll bar drop links (Common problem they knock like a door knocker on a windy night).
3) Upper wishbones (Again common, they squeak and creak a bit).
4) EGR Valve clogging up with carbon, remove and clean. (another common problem with this engine which is used in Fiats, Vauxhalls and Saab's).
Had new brake pads and discs and a lower wishbone though these are not really a problem particular to the GT. Lower wishbone ball joint boot split, otherwise nothing wrong.
I will also mention apart from the brake discs nothing else was an MOT failure.
