Is it just an age thing?

I am writing this because the wires going into the back of speakers keep playing up crackling speakers = road rage and usually involves me hitting my door card

A mate of mine said you can get the wiring re-done but I have no idea on the cost?

Anyone have any info?

Cheers

Thats more than likely because you wired it wrong. IMO in general i find corsa wiring is not the best but its alot better than other cars out thier

Fcuk around with the wiring in any way (like an engine conversion) and its going to open up possible problems.

Standard wiring is fine. Probably rusty connections, give them a clean.

Or just route new wiring in.

i had this problem, used to have to smack it but it wouldnt last long, i found out it was my terminals hitting the metal on the door some how, so i coverd them in electrical tape and made sure the wire was out the way when i done the window down
