Omega General Help / Windscreen Washer Pump
« on: 20 November 2017, 20:50:11 »
Any recommendations for a repair on screen wash pump?

Driving along suddenly all fluid to screen stopped, headlights fine. Randomly, fluid came back to all 4 jets for a while, then nothing. Inspecting the pipework the fluid pipe to screen pump just dropped off. Looked like it was corroded and recent cold snap was last nail. Would also explain the rather constant drips underneath the car in bumper area, wondered what fluid was, think it was this pipe connector leaking.

Removed the pump, the tube which sticks out (moulded to the pub), that the rubber pipe normally attaches to has snapped clean off. Been trying to look around the garage for some tube of some sort I can glue to the pump, then attach some pipework. But I've not got anything.

 :-\ :-\ :-\

Posted in parts for new pump, also order some pipework off eBay. But wondering on a repair.  :-\

Due to the output pipe snapped off, could do with a working screen wash pump. (windscreen pump)

I'm not usually that interested in them, but this year I will watch with keen interest.

Hope they may cut/reduce stamp duty, seen few rumours. Suspect it will be for first time buyers only.  :(

General Car Chat / Zafira: LED interior lights
« on: 12 November 2017, 08:33:20 »
I would ask this on the Zaf forums, but they are rubbish!

In the Zaf, I'd like to swap the interior bulbs for LED ones which are brighter and I can see better, make things easier getting my 2 little MissT's sorted in the car at night.

Do I have to look for canbus ones? I know on the VW you had to get special kinds or it would trigger warnings.

Yes, I need to go out to the car and look at the various types I need, but sat on sofa now and just thought I'd ask if anyone has done similar.

Was thinking similar to these:

Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / Upper kick foam panel - lugs
« on: 10 November 2017, 13:06:23 »
I could do with a few of those lugs, that you use to secure the foam kick panel above the pedals.

2 or 3.

Or are these standard and can be had on eBay?   :-\

Omega General Help / Fuel Filter Change
« on: 08 November 2017, 13:53:16 »
Do you need the special tool to remove the pipework? Remember fatty admin had a gadget, can I just it with basic tools? 3.2 one is rather old  :-[

General Car Chat / Vauxhall Service Plans
« on: 08 November 2017, 13:49:59 »
So I bought my Zafira from Fuse19's favourite dealer, Evans Halshaw  :)

It fitted the specs I wanted and budget, so went to a dealer up at St Albans. I did consider other dealers, but often these were "appointment only" places, or some rented industrial unit. Handing over the cash I did, wanted a dealer of some sorts. (did not have to be Vx)

Anywho, they keep calling me to flog me a service plan. I am just ignoring it and initial reaction is just trying to flog something I don't need. As when I bought it, I told them were to go with all the kinds of insurance and warranties they tried to flog. I just bought the car  :)

Any thoughts? Anyone have a Vauxhall one, STEMO?

It's '14 plate, 41k miles. I would need to keep service history up for a few more years, but was planning on just basic oil changes to keep service history stamped up.

I would change, air filter, fuel filter, pollen filters, brake pads etc.

Happy to report MrsT gave birth on Sunday, after just a 30mins labour.  :o  :)

So little MissT just became a big sister.  :)

8lbs 8oz, so good weight  :)

Glad I have the Zafira Tourer now  :D

General Car Chat / Tech 2 - Zaf Tourer
« on: 30 October 2017, 13:21:18 »
Discussions on DPF reminded me to ask, can Tech2 speak to a 2014 Zaf Tourer 2.0 CDTi?

Can it give live data for DPF? Not that anything is wrong, just curious if it can do it.

Omega General Help / Puddle Light - Door Switch?
« on: 19 October 2017, 20:52:32 »
Only noticed today, as it's getting dark. But the passenger door puddle light works fine when I open the drivers door, but open the passenger side and it no worky.

I know they get stuck some times, so manually activated it a number of times, no joy  :(

Faulty door switch?  :-\

General Discussion Area / Cooker Hood Fuse
« on: 16 October 2017, 14:38:32 »
Cooker Hood - Fuse location

So the extractor fan on the cooker hood blew some time ago, really should fix it. The bulb blew, it took out the whole thing as even a replacement bulb won't work nor the fan. It does not actually extract it, just filter it out.

Where is the fuse for this? Doing some Googling suggests there should be a fused spur separate from the plug? As it's powered by 3 pin plug in one of the cabinets, is there a fuse in the chimney area? Can't see one in the light area.

Not sure how the chimney bit comes off  :-\

Omega General Help / Sealing GPS Ariel

Today noticed gap in the tired rubber seal at the base of the GPS ariel, can I just smear some black or clear sealant around the base?

General Car Chat / Optional Extra's - Zafira
« on: 12 October 2017, 09:52:39 »
I guess because it's the type of car, they make the extra's what people want. My new Zafira Tourer has aircon and cruise control, aux input, tyre pressure sensors, all of which are standard even on the base model.

What is optional extra, is the storage  ???

The SE model, has a nice little sunglasses storage in front of the MID, it's optional on mine. As are the useful under seat storage boxes, the rear storage is same with box in the back of the arm rest for back seat people to use.

Tried to look for guides to retro fit these, particularly the storage in front of the MID and under seat stuff. But as usual all other forums are total cr@p, a post once a month at best and sod all technical knowledge.  :(
