General Car Chat / Ebay listed elite estate 143500586023
« on: 20 January 2020, 16:18:13 »
Is anyone else watching / bidding on the lovely looking blue elite estate?
Looks like a lovely car....I'd be bidding if my circumstances allowed it.......

...the car failed it's mot  :(
Am therefore in need of these bushes - anyone?
I've seen the maintenance guide & there is a picture of poly bushes used & it seems logical to me to use them whilst I'm at it!
Anyone know where I may get these from?

...the current mirror is almost intact after being hit whilst the car was parked...
If nobody has a complete mirror, I could use just the housing to make good!
Please PM....

I managed to snap one of the pipes on my unit so need another...
Yes I know there are some on ebay but anyone on here got one for sale?

Omega General Help / Fitting of aux belt....2.2 dti
« on: 22 August 2019, 15:23:32 »
It must be on the site somewhere but I can't find a picture of how to position the belt now that my new crank pulley is on.
Please enlighten me someone...thanks.  :-[

So, finally managed to get the old crank pulley off my 2.2.dti....feeling pretty pleased with myself  :y

I now need help to buy a new one....I first tried local vauxhall dealer - I nearly fell over at how much they wanted...
ebay....found car spares direct who tell me their parts are supplied by Primeline in Germany but not necessarily made there!

I don't want to spend all day researching this so any help with suppliers? I would prefer a genuine part as I don't want it to break in 12 months time but I don't want to spend a fortune either. I saw an old post on here saying avoid a FEBI......I keep seeing TVD on some ebay listings, what does that mean?

Obvs I will replace the belt whilst everything is in bits but should I be replacing anything else whilst I'm at it? I plan on keeping the car for a while yet...owned her for 7 years & still enjoy driving her.

The old girl broke down in a petrol station near wife was OK  ;D
After being towed home I am ready to pull a muscle or my back or both....
Assuming I manage to get the old one off, anyone have one for sale?
My car is an '02 2.2 dti

Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / WTD: 2-4-6 coil pack
« on: 30 December 2018, 13:46:14 »
So I need a coil pack to replace my cracked one!
Cos I'm soooo tight I'm thinking used but then sensible head says new because it's probably not worth getting a used one!?

Are there different brands? The one I'm replacing is Bosch but I have seen this one on ebay:


Omega General Help / Misfire....logical next step?
« on: 29 December 2018, 17:45:11 »
V6 2.6 auto
So, I have replaced all the spark plugs. I have removed the plenum & as per the great guide supplied by Fuse 19, I have dismantled, cleaned using carb cleaner all the bits, throttle etc & it's all back.
No improvement in the miss fire, eml remains on & via pedal trick I have codes 0300, 0304, 0302 & 1110.
I have checked all the cables & pipes & as far as I can tell all seems good.
What would you advise I try next?
If I take the car to someone with a code reader will it provide more specific information?

Omega General Help / Plenum - multiram electrical connector...
« on: 27 December 2018, 15:40:17 »
If the multiram electrical connector plug was not connected together properly, what would be the result? Would the eml stay on? Would it produce a fault code?

Omega General Help / Pipes at rear of plenum...
« on: 27 December 2018, 14:20:51 »
I'm removing the plenum to clean up things as per one of the great guides on here.
There are four pipes at the rear of the plenum which need removing & they have a type of clip I am not familiar with. Fearful of breaking them, how are they removed / undone?

I'm needing the 4 clips/clamps for fitting the plastic trim on the rear wing of an '02 estate car.
I think the part no is 9148386.
I have tried several Vauxhall dealers without success.


Hi all,

I'm in need of a rear bumper for our estate after an altercation with a brick wall   :o
Z157 star silver ideally, obvs needs to be in good condition.
I am in North Essex but am happy to travel a reasonable distance or could possibly arrange a courier.

Cheers, JD

Cars for Sale & wanted / Any recent intel on discounted parts?
« on: 31 March 2018, 12:51:02 »
I need a new bonnet release cable & new bonnet latch spring.
Which are the best places, if any, for discounted Vauxhall parts?
The information I have seen is quite dated; are there any current suppliers I should try?

Omega General Help / Bonnet release cable removal
« on: 30 March 2018, 11:53:41 »
I'm struggling to remove the bonnet release cable lever in the cabin foot well.  :-[
Does anyone have any knowledge on how to remove it.
It looks to me like it has a lug or two that holds it in place. I'm trying to force it towards the rear of the car as it looks like it might slide that way...?
