Omega General Help / Re: Non Starter

Was battery changed as a result of this problem or just before? Check terminals aint loose, you'll get enough juice to get lights on but won't fire starter circuit.

The catch or the arena wears out and you just adjust it a little bit so the door fits better unde the two trox screws tap it a little till it moves a bit. Noticed on mine that you could push the doors a fair bit when they closed. Now don't move that much and no creaking and cracking sounds.

Got it, your just pulling the doors in a bit tighter to account for age/wear etc. I'll have a look at mine see how they are.

has similar thing, turn'd out to be the door catches need adjusting. so did all 4. no sounds now. might be the same thing. don't know why but the pass side rear one was rusted on the underneath all others were fine and it was not rusted on the paint work, cleaned it up and painted just the back see if that sorts it no other rust or anything.

In what did they need adjusted? I have checked the catches in case loose as had that with other cars.

Probably.

Does it feel slightly disconnected as you throw it through a series of bends?

Hard to tell as not much experience driving one with good bushes, plus im a fairy when i drive. It does feel a bit choppy on a long s bend on one of the back roads i frequent, but it's an omega so not expecting porsche handling!

Only hear it when at parking speeds, likeluly wont hear any noise at speed.

Omega General Help / Creak sound back
« on: 21 May 2018, 07:19:02 »
Occassionally get a creak sound from back end if for instance reversing into drive and on a bit of an angle or manouvering slowly on a twisty bit of road, i.e. camber a bit off from front to back. Is it doughnut bushes perhaps starting to go?

Sat at home looking out of the window I can see a bright white single light , it appears about the same time every night just after 2100 hrs . It first appears at approx 270 degrees in the west and in have an hour it has moved over to 280 degrees .
I donít think it is an aircraft as it only appears to move sideways and does not get any closer or further away , and it repeats this every night .
Any ideas what it could be ?
Apparently SWMBO reckons it is the space station ?

Seen that the other night, one of our floating rocks rouns the solar system no doubt. Mars or Venus!

There is a silver 2.2 saloon, FE02 I think part of registration in premier inn car park in Edinburgh park, right who's here? 😄

Total load of tosh, they paid in so deserve pension and care.

True enough, but on the flip side I think most would agree things got pretty well out of hand regarding a lot of baby boomers. Take as an example my friend's father, early retired from his police desk job on his 50th birthday, full final salary pension, index linked, all that jazz. Even starting work at 16, he's been educated by the state, at work 34yrs and will probably live another 34yrs at the state's expense.

Hard to swallow when your taxes are paying his £40-50k/yr at the same time you're being told that your pension age is going up, you need to work more hours than your parents' generation, housing to income multiples are higher than they've ever been. Oh and you're lazy and entitled.  ::)

So It's more about they got a good deal and we didn't so I'm pissed off and now we should take it all away from them. If he'd paid in for 34 years does he not deserve it? I mean if that is the system you are presented with you can't then turn round and say oh you're living too long we need the money back, the government and the corporations knew what the system was they can't oversee it, then penalise people for simply using it; it's like the diesel scandal, penalise people for what at the time they were told by the government, or more like, encourage, to do. Here's the reason our pensions are disappearing:

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Re: Hazards start flashing

I would check to see if the powersounder is still fitted.

Low battery volts will trigger an alarm from the powersounder.

Is it the power sounder that has batteries in it or is that car battery? Where is the power sounder located?

Got it, read the guide and all info there.

Just read a few similar posts, turn hazards on off 20 times to clean switch, put key in ignition with on but not started and lock unlock with fob, also could be relay that does double flash when locking, one section faulty.

When i came back to my car today the hazards were flashing, when i unlocked it they stopped, but then started when i opened door. Is this a sign of something about to go tits up? I also notice if i unlock car with key they flash, then go out when ignition on, this is a seperate issue i dont know if related to first, as that just happened today.

I'd love too! But my photo bucket seems to be on the blink and I'm very rusty with forums. I'll try this evening  :y

Using amazon s3 hosting for photos now, photobucket is in the bucket, no problems at all, they do charge a little bit but it's pennies and you get whole chunk of free space when you start out.

So, I've decided to change the top mounts and bearings on the front struts.  I've only done one side so far and thought I'd got it all back together properly but when I took the car around the block to try it (and to test the back brakes I've just done), it was quickly apparent something wasn't right.  The strut is now creaking when I steer and is not turning smoothly when I steer.

Can anyone tell me what I've done wrong?  Thanks.

Never fitted an omega one but I remember something with cavalier ones if you don't line up notches on the top spring cup and plastic insert then it can end up crushing the bearings too much, that or something is either missing or not fitted quite right perhaps?.
