Omega General Help / heater fan push switches on main dash panel
« on: 04 January 2019, 20:24:53 »
Hello i have an issue with the fan  switch area on my 2002 elite 2.6 which became kind of sticky. i attempted to clean off the stickyness with spray dash cleaner but ended up taking the black off the small fan control switches and the other two switches on that panel.
I would need to replace the whole panel which includes boot release and rearblind amongst other things.
my question is how easy is it to replace the panel(the one that surrounds the stereo)and can i get hold of a used one ?
thanks for help

General Discussion Area / Top 10 future classics in decline
« on: 01 September 2018, 21:17:15 »
Reading the latest issue of practical classics the Omega came in at number 5  in the above list:
It stated :number on the road first quarter 2016 = 10,197       
               number on the road first quarter 2018 = 5,213
A 48.9 % decline at this rate Omegas won't even reach classic status ! Is it rust killing them or just running costs?
Its quite a rapid rate :'(  They might not all have been scrapped some could be sorned.

Help needed please, tried to remove wheels on my omega today and was unable to remove locking bolt. I have the correct adapter but it just rolls off  when given any purchase.

How am i going to get these off ,obviously if sucessful i will disguard them and replace with ordinary non locking bolts. thanks for any help Paul
