Replaced front discs and pads, bled fresh fluid through then did oil and filter on the daily.

Believe Serek has a contact in Poland who will supply a poly version on exchange plus a few

Eco, just switches compressor off, so need to see if compressor is working,
Engine running is the compressor going round, Eco switch press, see if compressor stops or starts, also compressor won't run if not sufficient gas.

Also don't believe it will run if ambient air temp is less than 4 degrees - to stop the system freezing.

Oh dear.... 'if your unit has not received regular firmware updates... blah blah blah'

Be worth examining the magazine cartridge as the little screws that hold it together can start to work loose with age. If the changer isn't detecting the cartridge or the cartridge does not lock into place then there is something either out alignment or broken within the mechanism.

There's a notch top and bottom towards the 'wider' iirc end... Insert a couple of wooden coffee stirrers and push the tabs towards each other and pop the unit out.

The lens shouldn't be removable... (it USED TO BE bonded on)  ::)

Nope never done that before, nope, never  ::)

No fear of incorrect installation, DG - Serek did them last time! Do you have a link for All German Parts please, Mr. Blue?


just trying to find it  Ron  . . .   looks like they may have gone bust  . . .found a headline saying "Liquidators were appointed in August 2018" 

Anyone know about this ? :'( :'( :'(

Yes I came to the same conclusion when I tried to contact them recently. Shame as Jason always tried his best to help us.

I'm no longer an ABS member so guess this isn't open to none VBOA members to display cars?

My dashcam power feed is soldered onto the back of that accessory socket. It keeps the power off the auxiliary timer so the camera keeps running for 5 or so mins after you have left the vehicle which is handy  :y

Omega General Help / Re: Battery replacement

Sorry my mistake, yes you can fit a standard 70/72ah battery and keep the jacket, the original battery fitted on most of my V6's (from the factory) was physically smaller and lower capacity hence I know you can 'upsize'

So... Is this happening?

Can your Opelscanner do Signums, being CAN?  As decent diags equipment is worthwhile :)

Pretty sure I upgraded to the CAN version, been using a n other for quick checks on the rest of the fleet more recently

Cambelt is easy to do, you change the water pump as a matter of course with the cambelt kit (as you should do) then you don't get issues.

If you got a 150 I may well have a pile of spares you are welcome to (I expect it includes a clean spare EGR to)


Hopefully going to look at a couple of Signums this weekend, will update here  :y
