After many years of membership I didn't renew last year as my dealer does trade prices regardless of ABS membership.  :-[

Ditto - and even before that, there was only one guy who knew how to put through cash transactions against a trade account.

Admin please lock

Part received and fitted, water ingress resolved - well, at least from that location :-D

Thanks John!

You’re a gentleman sir, hope to return the favour in future.

Fitted new timing chain tensioner to the M5 - no more chain slap on cold mornings, glad I caught that one quickly!

Fresh oil and filter for Mrs SJC's Astra, such an easy job when there's no engine tray to navigate and the filter can be reached from above.

Omega - need to source a driver's door handle since the bezel round the lock barrel has broken up so I've used a bit of blu-tac to plug the gap and a will give her a quick wash so she doesn't feel neglected  ;)

When I press the pedal smoothly the movement is quite long and I have a feeling of bad brakes. When I quickly release pedal and make another press the movement is much shorter and brakes are much more powerful. like the assistant worked more effectively in the first centimeters of the movement.
new discs, pads and a flush of the brake fluid should fix that
This. But only if you press the pistons home with the bleed nipples open before you bleed the fluid. Otherwise you retain enough dead fluid to make a noticeable negative difference  ;)

^wot he said

BTW, if buying GM pads, 9192124 are the crap "Aftermarket Specification", always try to get the OE pads 9195077

Thanks for further clarification,Jim.

Problem is lots of cost in seals and gaskets just to get to them and as only recently had belt/pullies done and both cam covers gaskets I will need to weigh up...dirty engine or lots of work and money again :(

Leave it til the next time your in that area ;-)

Not necessarily... Could be draining down behind the rear cover ;)

Wouldn't be visible without removing the cam pulley :y

+1 for cam seals - I used to get exactly the same puddle of oil that seemed to come from the oil pressure switch but it continued after fitting a new one.

I had to do the head gaskets (YES THEY DO FAIL) and once the rear timing cover came off it was quite obvious that the oil was coming from the cam seals.  All dry as a bone now, probably the only Omega I've owned that has a nice clean engine!

Hi folks

The clear plastic bezel around the drivers door lock has disintegrated on my '99 mini facelift and is allowing water inside the door when it rains.  This is the part that effectively forms a seal between the lock barrel and the door handle plate.

Anyone got a spare, happy to buy a complete door handle and since this part is not colour coded the colour makes no difference :)

Part 21 as highlighted.

Sounds like crank sensor to me, but also, where was the new fuel from?  Could be worth trying a couple of gallons from a different source.

Many thanks mate

Just deciding whether I go used, or new route. New of course means remove my original sensor and refit. Will be in touch  :y

Ah, got ya.  ;)

DBG, the cats I pm'd you about have the sensors still in them - were working fine when removed  ;)
