,the crapasso is dead)



Have the shower of shit that ruined it been taken to task yet ::)

all in hand , got an independent report  :y awaiting response from clutch cowboys
we have to be polite ,patient , follow procedure

to be honest , i'd be much happier working on this zaf than the crapasso anyway
of the many crapassos i looked at the other day as a replacement , all had welded or holed cills and other issues , much shaking of my head , sucking through my teeth , swearing  :-X
so i said ,in no uncertain terms ," BUY THIS VAUXHALL ZAFIRA " even though it says opel on the history  ;D

Its one of the lowest spec cars I've had for many years, including the leased Rover 400s she used to get.

I shoved a NCDR1100 in mine so at least I can add satnav to the list, purely because I had it laying around, and the cdr500 needed a code ;D

radio works (had to put the code in the cdr500  as it has a brand new battery )
roof ariel was missing ,but the replacement was about 4 delivered
still gets radio 1 fine till the ariel arrives , much to the annoyance of the zaf owner/family member
(who's over 70 ,listens to local radio shyte,rather than what noises his car is making  :()

SOP for us pensioners. ::)

But it'll be the switches in the door motor, so lets not get overly excited.

Changed them, then had another problem a day later.

I would unlock the door with the remote and it would instantly re-lock itself. That went on for two days. I had to pull the door handle before it would re-lock, to get in and now for the last few days the problem has stopped by itself.

Can the central locking get confused and relearn?

It was that company form die Faterland what bring over brand new original Opel parts. Pricey (ie: often more expensive than it was new, even factoring in inflation) but shouldn't knock them as they have 'everything', even Monza inner wings, which only a few years ago were literally unobtainable. MM Opel Parts

Anyone has a scabby irmscher wheel for free that I can re-cover let me know  :D

All the 100bhp ones are Y20DTH ;). But there are 2 different variants.

Do Halfords still do service parts like filters? Thought they had stopped.

Just 100 ponies  :o :o :o

Don't think I could ever drive something with so few horses under the bonnet.  ;D ;D  :P :P

Given how old it is, could have lost a few and have around 90!  :o
I'm not worried about the 100 BHP , or even 90 BHP because the crapasso was only 90 BHP to start with (non turbo 2.0 HDi 100k miles) plus I won't be driving it on a regular basis
with a new turbo core, good service,105 k on the clock , i doubt it will be far off 100 anyway
plus, it's for an OAP ,doubt he does many street races for pink slips  :y

My car had 90 when it left the factory 28 years ago. Dread to think how many have escaped during its 239,000 miles.  ;D
The secret is to get up to speed and then don't slow down if you can possibly avoid it.  :)
Indeed , my omega v6 carries lots of tools etc ,and is a heavy lard arse lump to begin with , so i "get up to speed and then don't slow down if I can possibly avoid it."  :y
plus , them brake pad things cost money  ;D

As I said in the guide, it was done on a 2004 police spec 3.2 manual using Haynes as a reference.

Many of the facelift wiring trace colours are slightly different although the primary colours are mostly the same, and that car had NONE of the sensor wiring present so it was all a ballache.

Did you figure this out yet? Cause i did just now:) bought a third omega. A 97 2,0 estate. One owner car has done just 60.000km. Had a tid fitted but it was completely gone. Only about 5 pixels still working. Figured out i would buy a grey plug mid since i needed a display anyway and dont want to be annoyed with pixel failures. Ran into the same problem you did. Radio info, and check control worked fine, but fuel computer functions was dead. Started crosschecking the pin list in this theead (which i followed) with Haynes. Turns out whoever wrote this list mixed up the wire colours on fuel sender and speed sensor. Pin 12 and pin 26 on the grey plug needs to be switched around. 12 should be blue/red and 26 should be blue/black. Everything working great now.
  Also job was much easier than it seems in the guide. This poverty spec 97 with a tid had ALL the wiring in place already. Yellow plug obviously in the tid, but the black plug with the rest og the wires was taped up just behind it. And behind the fuse box the multipin connector for the bulb control was present. Also wiring for the new stalk was present in the steering coloumn. Only needed the mid with plug, new stalk, bulb control unit and the various sensors in the engine bay. Wiring present for them to:) Happy days!
