General Car Chat / Re: Zafira A 2.0 DTi service
« on: Yesterday at 22:50:12 »
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

Had rear tyres of 3.2 checked at Costco, wanted a second opinion as starting to get low. All good though, 4mm left and wearing evenly.
A second opinion? Haven't you got a tyre gauge?  :-\

Nope, I just feel for the wear indicator. Plus I was already at Costco and they were doing PS4ís for £103 corner, with £20 vouchers back for each 2 fitted.

So thought Iíd check  :y

Silly question i know and you have no doubt checked this but is it closing fully or does it need a reset? . I have found with mine that it doesnt need to be lifted much untill you hear wind noise .

I did wonder, I opened and closed it. Seal looks right, just an aging/cracking

Thanks all. Iíll give it a clean up and some silicone grease, see if that helps.  :y

Would silicone GREASE be a better bet? It won't wash off in the rain (unless it's a tempest!) and should cut down on the noise.

Ron.

Should it be exposed 24/7 though  :-\

Hummmm. Damn. As its a draft excluder, maybe a bodge, but black tape along front? Tempting to put silicone sealer and just pull fuse so it's longer useable.

Omega General Help / Sunroof Seal

Itís not leaking, but there is an awful lot of wind noise from the front of it. Iíve had it open a few times in hot weather, to cool car down quicker. Sure itís noiser, perhaps not sealed as well. Nice steady 85mph cruise, I had to close the blind itís that annoying.

Does look all cracked and such, it is a 16 years old...

Easy to replace? Worth doing?

Yup, they're a company car option for us, which I ended up not taking but I did sit in and test drive one.

I'm 6'1" and 23st, and I found it the most comfortable of that size of car that I tried.

Fooking ell......Jimmy. I'm 6' 1" and 14 stone. The doctor was too polite to call me a fat bastard but said I should aim to lose a stone and a half.

1.5 stone sounds like too much?

Iím 6í 5Ē and 13.5 stone.

Sounds like you are getting brand spankers one, so perhaps of no use. But the VCDS/VAGCOM software is easily available and very easy to use, so it would allow easy diagnosis and enabling features.  :y

Glad to hear you have progress  :y

With this job, best to take your time and clean everything up. Personally, I'd let the cam cover goo set overnight before running it up to full temp. Start it after you've done it, just to ensure it's all sealed right. Pay special attention to the half moons at the back to ensure they are sat well. Then knock the engine off and leave over night  :)

I miss working on my 2.2 engine.  :(

Very roomy - the biggest interior I sat in of anything in its class, and at least as big as the Omega, if not roomier.

Granted I'm no beanpole but at the time I was 5'10" and 29st (22st, now, so it feels considerably more roomy! ;D).

That is some achievement!  :o :o

Seriously, well done there.  :y

Basically, Opti, it's scrap value at best with this setup.

Best you sell me the whole car, for £500.00  :y
