Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / CCR2006 wanted.
« on: 30 April 2020, 23:50:08 »
Hello all.  I don't suppose anyone has a Bose CCR2006 in working order they would be willing to sell me? because what with the cd section not working and the radio not always behaving and the front panel has literally fallen off it now I've had enough of it and need something that works to fill the gap.


Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / Rear springs wanted.
« on: 12 April 2020, 20:54:27 »
Hello all,  Might someone have some rear springs for my estate as cheap as possible please  :) because the nearside one has lost the bottom coil and sods law will be the offside one wont be far behind.


Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / Glovebox handle wanted.
« on: 13 April 2019, 20:55:31 »
I don't suppose anyone has a glovebox handle in beige or whatever the colour it might be for my car as it finally gave up yesterday and now I cant even close the thing up at all.


Omega General Help / Idling problem.
« on: 03 April 2019, 22:25:52 »
Hello all,  Well after having done the cam cover seals and plugs the other day the engine has started to idle slightly faster than it normally does. and also when revved up has a tendency to stick at 2000-3000 rpm until I really rev it when it will eventually settle down to the slightly fast idle. im sure I put it all together properly and have gone around checking all the pipes and making sure everything is tightened correctly but it still continues to do the same thing. and today I have had the engine light illuminate and when I checked for codes I got the P0173 came up on the reader and which I deleted but which will probably come back again. can anyone shed some light on what the problem or problems might be..


Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / Heater hoses wanted.
« on: 20 March 2019, 14:01:04 »
I suppose i'm asking for the impossible here, but does anyone have some new heater hoses that I could buy for my car because now that I have replaced the radiator the heater hoses have decided to let out my coolant everywhere. and I know i'm pushing my luck filling it with plain water..


Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / Front wing wanted.
« on: 24 July 2018, 18:17:07 »
As the post has disappeared ill ask again if anyone has an offside front wing in gold for my car as it was damaged earlier by a hit and run knob.


Hello all. Could I interest someone in my Persia red estate?. it does need welding on the front rails and a little in the nearside arch but is otherwise ok bodily. the engine and box work well but the ABS TC probably needs the ECU swapping out as it comes on and goes out when it feels like it. its had front wishbones and the entire exhaust complete with the lambda replaced last year so they should still be good for a while yet.  as for price im not sure what to ask but it needs to go sooner rather than later..


Can someone help with a little problem I have. basically when I switched on the lights the other day smoke started pouring from the switch so I popped the bonnet and disconnected the battery just to be on the safe side. but now I don't have any instrument panel or radio lights at all and despite checking fuses and swapping the circuit board inside the switch I cannot get any illumination. does anyone have any suggestion as to the problem.


Omega General Help / Pump problems.
« on: 15 September 2017, 00:07:43 »
Can anyone tell me what the pump under the nearside front bumper is for and if one can be found as it makes a hell of a noise when I first start up the car..

 I thought today i'd change the oil for a laugh  >:( and when I came to remove the cap from the rest of the housing it wouldn't come as a surprise to hear it never budged at all. so off I went to get the breaker bar on it and after a struggle it seemed to move but on checking the whole bloody thing was turning and to add insult to injury no matter which way I turned the thing I could not get it off the block or could I tighten it. so my question is what can I do to sort it out as I'm slowly going off the damn car.

Omega General Help / Exhaust manifold to downpipe nuts.
« on: 12 July 2017, 13:49:15 »
Here I go with a stupid question.. what size are the nuts that hold the cat pipes to the manifold?. I ask because I've tried a 14mm and its too small i've also tried a 15mm and it seems to big are they AF or some other strange size or am I being a bit daft.


Omega General Help / Car wont start.
« on: 11 June 2017, 13:59:00 »
Hello all.  I went out earlier to start the car and nothing not even a splutter it just cranks over without any intention of starting yet started fine yesterday. also I don't know whether its anything to do with it but when it does run it seems to be fine when you're not gunning it but utterly useless when trying to overtake anything and theres this hissing noise when you floor it.. i'm lost again so any pointers as to whats wrong with the heap will be appreciated.


Omega General Help / Help needed welding.
« on: 03 May 2017, 15:43:50 »
Hello all.  Could someone help by welding a couple of areas on my recently acquired omega 2.5 estate?. it needs the inner arch to floorpan area near the seatbelt mount up to near the spring seat and a small area on the sill. now heres the part that will no doubt put everyone off.. at the moment payment would mostly be in the shape of VN51 EAK my 3.2 elite estate which is minus the nearside windows (smashed) but otherwise complete it does have an MOT to pretty much the end of august and runs very well indeed.

Here's hoping someone can help.

Omega General Help / Strange code result..
« on: 11 April 2017, 18:32:08 »
Hello all.  Earlier I thought I would give the cheap code reader a blast only to find one of the codes it came up with is not on the list. the number is P0705 ? and of course the usual 0420/0430 ones that usually pop up all the time. is it an actual number or should the code reader be ignored.
