Replaced mine about 3 years ago with B4,s although very shortly after fitting them I replaced them with Sachs as found the B4,s quite harsh although sure I had become "brain blocked " to the feel of self levelling which have a much floatier ride.

You will need to also fit new rear springs if you currently have a full self levelling system fitted as they wont hold the cars weight and will end up with a very bad handling car .Factor that cost also .

You can disable the air compressor by either removing a fuse although it will disable the rear 12 volt socket,so preferred method is pulling the pumps relay.It is a black relay sited in the fuse box area although my brain cells cannot remember which at present so others will hopefully advise if I haven't remembered later.

When I fitted my radiator last summer I had a similar issue with 1 of the black 0 rings being split.

Just put a liberal smear of black cam sealant around pipe union and refitted it.Hasnt leaked since and doudt it will until it next gets disturbed.

Yes classic solenoid failure as LZ has advised.

No amount of lubricant etc will fix..time for replacement or if nifty with soldering iron fit new micro switches.

All covered in Guides

Fingers crossed it still works then,as spent quite a lot of effort,and that of others, last year getting mine back working.

Accept its an out of date old system but its built into the car and if it was designed to work its nice to keep it functioning.Use it very infrequently but surprising just how accurate it is accepting for the discs being some 8 years old now....agree also it does get spat out some mornings ,which I hadn't appreciated was likely to be condensation

Been running the 2/4/6 pack listed for Vectra for the past 12 months with no ill effects..didn't swop seals just fitted it and misfire sorted..although did  wonder why the colour of the seal was grey..now I know  :y

I unfortunately drive around with a boot full of work stuff,which for practical reasons cannot sit on the back seat or floor and being rather heavy is best in the boot.
Only time it gets all taken out is for holidays when boot gets filled back up with suitcases/etc etc,so my boot is essential and gets a very hard life :o

Would of considered doing mine when first bought as cover some 100 +miles a day and accept the fuel saving would of been considerable...trouble was I couldn't afford to loose the boot space being part of the reason I own an Omega. :)

I intend to monitor it for the next few weeks ,but it is definitely getting a worse leak as I tend cleaning it with watering can with a little clean water almost everyday and the following day it is as bad.


Maybe we can have a chat at some point Nick ,when I,m passing next Ill call by if that's ok  :y

Wise words and that will be my plan  :y,although I may start accumulating the bits for future if I find them going cheap.

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 :(
