Can this be done? :o
I wouldn't like to destroy new stat by trying...Did you just unclip the part that is hold into place by spring and pull it out?
That would make things much easier

Ok, I will follow your wisdom...had been proven to me a few times :y
I have all the goodies for Omega already...
Water pump 35 (metal blades)
 CTS
Gauge temp sensor
Oil cooler
Washers
GM oil & filter
Thermostat + 2 O rings for the pipe

Crank and cam oil seals were replaced 4 years ago although not leaking at the time

I'd really like to keep the old girl for 4 or 5 years more..with only a bit over 100k miles on a clock she's a keeper and already a rarity on the road

I know your views  ;D I've been here long enough...all I'm saying is they are 18 years old now and if they fail I'll bang my head into the wall for not replacing them while having access

Omega General Help / Cambelt change side jobs
« on: 20 August 2018, 14:05:02 »
Hi guys, I'm planning to do a cambelt job in week or two, have all the parts already bought and in garage.
I'm thinking about replacing both sensors screwed into coolant radiator while I'm there as they seem to be hard to reach without all the air hoses out.
I know one sensor is a fan switch but I don't know what the other is for..?
And does anyone have part numbers for those sensors?
Thanks, Stan

Yes....used one are risky to buy. They're all warped esp. the side with oil filler hole. Mine is having a really small leak on that side. Still have 2 spair pairs in garage but they are all slightly warped. I'm searching for vectra's alu cam covers but IF they appear the price is just over the top. I decided to live with that small leak which is BTW much smaller than it was when I bought the car. It was like it ran on steam not gasoline

Well I got my Omega back two days ago and picked up both strips from old wheel arches. They have rust all over
their  sticky surface so I can't reuse them. I will find another way.... But now she's like new....I'm glad I had rust professionaly sorted out....It wasn't that expensive too, I paid 320 for hands + both panels I bought.

Hi guys, I'm without my Omega this week due to rust repair - replacement of both rear panels.
I'm searching for part number or at least a name of the black piece of protection that is glued on the body panel and 
is hidden when the door is shut. It follows the rear arch line from cill covers toward the lock on the panel.
Curently searcing for a pic of it :-\

I have 3 sets of plastic cam covers. Replaced them numerous times and only one  passenger side cover is straight enough to make a good seal. All others have warped outer edge and wouldn't seal properly even with GM gasket. There's always a leak somewhere. The solution would be a new unused set of plastic straight covers which are expensive like they're made of gold or simply a set of alloy ones. Breather and vacuum hoses  are clean as new

Can't get those anywhere. I'm planning to repair rusty rear panels  this month followed by cambelt change and everything that goes with it, oil cooler too....I'll see if I'll replace leaking AC compressor ....long story short - if anyone has Veccy's  alloy cam covers just laying around for affordable price it would be the right moment to change them while I have it all appart.
