Omega General Help / Re: Replacement Xenon bulbs

My go to replacement xenon bulbs :y

OK... A bit frosty if not plain hostile.

This is my first interaction on this forum and not quite the friendly, we don't bite feeling I was expecting. I will relate this to my diligent gimp mechanic. I'm sure he'll be impressed.
I did say either/or...

Guess I'll have to look elsewhere for an answer.....


Omega front wishbones must be fitted following the correct procedure, part of which includes tightening the front bolts with the car on its wheels. Not doing this will damage them very quickly
About two days for the bushes, followed about five days later by the front tyres. Net result: car drives like a drunk iceskater.

Omegas are very sensitive to incorrect wheel alignment. Altering any of the settings without correcting the alignment of all four wheels will make the car drive abominably
See above...

This is such a common problem that the forum should send every new member a post stating it.
Stick around, we'll grow on you
Also, re the seat...

Does it clonk when the switch is pressed? If yes, sit in the seat and try rocking the seat as you pressed the button alternatingly. Should free up after a few goes... Heat won't solve anything... The support bushing is nylon iirc and won't appreciate being melted  ;)

Hello, and welcome btw :y

Arms not fitted correctly... Bolts not tightened with the wheels on the ground...

Geometry not set after arm change/set up by a blind gimp...

Address both. Correctly and report back  :y

Clicking suggests a flat battery  :-\

Jump leads from a n other car + to +/- to - and try again...

If still no joy, give the starter a tap with a block of wood and try again  ;)

Report back...

Weren't they penned by an Italian  :-\

Not that counts for anything when they were that badly built...  ::)

Brown was worse...

Indeed, it's as much about being the right employer for the prospective employee as it is the other way around... Even more important for first employee because you're looking for a right hand to help grow your business.  :y

Congratulations  :y

May or may not be your cup off tea, but have a read of Entreleadership ;)

Its alright kicking May out but wtf is there to replace her ::)

I give you the new leader of the Conservative party:

He won't be getting my vote, I would rather go for Sajid Javid if there is a contest but I hope she stays in.  Nobody else had the cojones to take this thankless job on and now those that should have had the gumption to step up are now sitting on the back benches throwing their teddies out of the pram.
Agreed. Now is not the time for anything more than getting Brexit done... A GE within 18 months would be nowt more than suicide for GB Plc...

If nothing else the box, a big lump of metal, is bolted to the engine, also a big lump of metal... As one warms up, so will the other and don't forget that the fluid is also running through the radiator... So as the engine and coolant warm up, so does the box and fluid ;)
