Omega General Help / Re: Replacement Xenon bulbs
« on: 14 December 2018, 19:46:43 »
So true but my eyes aren't that good now and "as the actress said to the bishop...cant find the ole !! " ;D ;D

Have removed and replaced headlights more times than I care to now remember and I would sooner take lamp out and be able to see what Im trying to undo than fiddle behind the battery and air box.

Just my opinion but that day wasn't a good example and I can normally get that bottom screw in quite simply  ;)

Not sure replacing a HID bulb without removing the lamp is a viable option ,as those small screws that hold the bulb cover in could go anywhere if dropped,and for the sake of 3 very accessible machine screws and a simple headlight clip trim and the entire lamp moves forward enough to get at everything

Worth the money...if you like to see where you are going at night  ;D.

Have them in mine and transformation is quite staggering  :y

Your a top man and the usual box of chocolate things will be exchanged  ;D

Should be back from Asda food shopping tomorrow  >:( by around 1.00 ish if your passing a fancy a cuppa

Some Bas*****d failed to stop today whilst I was parked in  a leafy village in S.Kent after leaving the casing of my drivers door mirror in several bits,

Looks like the main metal body is intact but I am more than happy to take entire mirror if it helps.Must be drivers side and for a FL Elite with memory and heated glass....if at all possible Z20R Black but appreciate this might be reducing my options so happy to take any colour as long as intact and working.

Thanks guys :y

Agree and think best just monitoring it as work and cost to replace seems excessive tbh.

Omegas are notorious for being incontinent and don't hold their fluids well,with too many silly seals and plastic bits but heyho :)

Yep follow your logic and really can be the only possibility as the underside of my oil pressure sensor is dry and has been replaced only a few weeks ago.

No other evidence on the side below the a/c compressor so maybe it is only under pressure and running it leaks and being as crank is rotating that way oil will always be on the side below the alternator.

Given the effort and cost involved in replacing it I will just continue as before and wait the next cambelt change probably in 2020 assuming I and the car are still running ;D

Its more annoying than a real issue as never "breaches" front of sump lip so never causes oil traces under car...might also be I,m now paranoid about it and clean it away almost the moment it appears and rarely causes oil level warning between changes.

Maybe constant turning of crank may cause the leak when pressure builds up but would of expected it to be more of a spray pattern than just oil laying on the sump lip and hollow below alternator.

You and me too Al.

I thoroughly cleaned sump and surrounding area to within an inch of its life .Removed and replaced the oil sensor and all seemed fine for a few 100 miles,then the traces of clean oil started again on top of the sump lip and puddling in the hollow below the alternator.

For the life of me I cant seem to trace it either.I have no evidence of oil leaking from the o/s cam cover especially as it was replaced in the summer with genuine,and when you run your finger around the join of the plastic casing and alloy head no oil is evident.

When Nick replaced cambelt mid summer he was certain leak was not front crank seal as that was also dry and it would be causing more of a spray than just the puddle I ,and you ,both seem to have.Its only ever a small puddle,doesnt drop onto the floor nor does it go beyond just the lip and hollow directly below alternator.

Nothing seems to be bolted to the block above that area which could leak oil so like you Im at a loss as to where it is coming from...more of an annoyance than a detriment though.

He,s had is so loooooong he,s forgotten the engine size. ;D

Listing clearly states 3.2l.....that's no V6 more like a 2.0 or 2.2 judging by the cam cover

Some "Ham Fist" from a previous ownership appears to of just pulled the hell out of mine and all 3 slots were busted open...heaven knows how as imagine the small plastic turn screws were weaker than the slot they fitted into,

Anyway mine is held up with 3 black cable ties...simply cut and replace when trim needs to be removed and totally invisible.

You might find the same damage has happened to yours
