General Car Chat / Re: Corsa 1.3CDti clutch and dual mass
« on: 06 July 2017, 14:02:51 »
Can anyone give me a hand tracking the right part numbers.....   Vauxhall want a ridonkulous amount of money (even a friendly andy can only manage around £940 )
58 plate Corsa SXi A/C CDTi (66kW manual (not semi auto) ) ,  needs a new clutch, and may as well have the dual mass as well ....    trying to find the right parts so i can buy them and have the local garage fit them..... 
(their price for the parts is not far off vauxhall's  ...(around £820)    but I know damn well you can get an LUK kit for £400-500

**Vee Kay five eight foxtrot foxtrot charlie**  is the reg.

thanks in advance .....

(yes I should have remembered to ask andy for the part numbers.....  dang it  )

DMF and clutch kit £420
and 6 hours to fit @35+vat


A great price and deal , thanks ... slightly impractical for me though , I'm in south Oxfordshire and don't fancy trying to get the car to Huntingdon:( nor can I take the time off work at present , so I need to get the local garage in our villGe to do it , to be fair they've quoted 5-6 hours at £50 an hour inc VAT , plus parts .
I've got LUK clutch kit inc Csc  on its way for just under £200 , still trying to confirm I've got the right flywheel on order , found a great price for one on Amazon , £175 + £5,20 for flywheel bolt set , but it's still not despatched and I've not had response from supplier ,

never had a manual Mig,  but i'm bloody sure the Sennie, and Carlton were single mass.   and there's break all to go wrong on those.... 

(and I trump you for mileage on them as well.....   My Sennie's all cracked past 200k in my ownership, all 4 of them.  Only had the carlton for about 75k , (2.2cd, just before my first 3.0 sennie, in the late 80's )

because it IS a common failing part in dual mass flywheels

Says man with experience in having them replaced on his Jags

:(


that said.....   the damn corsa is actually seeming to be MORE expensive than either of my Jags were

worthless good for nothing  partners....


i wish they had died......   frankly....  then i would't spend half my time wandering around wanting to kill them,

will add that both single mums also work,  although that is proving difficult for one of them as her child care has just been blown out of the water.....   neither are lazy dole claiming council house grabbing targets of the daily mail and conservative government....  but only by the skin of their teeth and exhausting amounts of hard work,  from us grandparents as well as them....

but yes....  the "fathers"   need terminating with extreme prejudice....     they're the reason I'm not driving a Jag XF sport brake....    one bailed out without telling anyone that he had;t been paying the rent or gas bill so he could fund his deposit on his own flat.....       i note....   taking HER money ,   for half the rent.....   and NOT paying ANY rent.....    anyone got a clue as to who got the bill when he scarpered ???


have a wild guess......  it's not someone driving an xf sport brake....

and the Navi900 system and Onstar thingy seem interesting, although i reckon £20 is a bit steep for the amount of data vodafone let it have.....   but the onstar service , at 90 a year inc vat, actually seems pretty good....   haven't decided whether to get the data pack.....  after all, i have data on the phone.....   lots of it .... and it's vastly cheaper....  will see.....  need to read manuals and check out what it's worth getting it for.....   no longer have hordes of children to entertain, so no need to stream movies on 4g..... 

as the warranty is transferable, and it's very low miles,   it should hold a fair bit of it's value for a little while,  so If i hate it,  hopefully i won't lose too much....

i'l be honest,  i ended up spending more than i wanted to, (£15k)  on a car i don't really want  ( i WANT AN XF SPORT BRAKE<  LET ME BE UTTERLY CLEAR !!!) it's only due to constant need to support  a son at Uni, and regular bailing out of two other "independent" daughters (both single mothers, thru no fault of their own )  that i'm five to ten grand short on the price of the car I want....  and i refuse to borrow.

Due to being slightly short of the purchase price of an XF sport brake, (being a fussy idiot I wanted a nice one,  with R-sport bits,  under 40k miles, and with jag approved 2 year warranty....  but instead I had to bail out my daughter on her council tax and rent....   to the tune of  three grand....    )   , I just bought a Insignia SRI CDTI Nav , 2.0 , 170PS 6 speed manual   ....   nearly new ,  (under 12 months old, under 10k miles,  from networkQ main VX dealer,  with over 5 years worth of full backed warranty ,  2 from vx, 3 from netQ / dealer  scheme....   with upgrades.... 


So....    Hello Boys......  I'm back from the land of Jaguar....

or nearly....    I'll collect it from dealer in about a week or so.....  once they've done the changes I asked for , and serviced it and so on.....  (and I can only get over to them on saturdays as I now have a day job.....    like normal people do ..... so i'm told....   ) 

pictures will come when I get my grubby mitts on it
