Hey mate,

what mileage has that done? Just trying to judge condition of things like trim, seats etc for wear? Seems like a low-miler from the pics.

Heads up Vectra V6 X25XE ones fit, just in case you've been looking at solely Omega.  :)

But how fast can this screenwash go from 0-60?  :)

Sadly no good to me, already got all that in one form or another, but jolly decent of you to post it, they're bleeding cracking buys the pair of them. The first link in particular is a great idea, oil filter tool and decent pair of pliers in there, nothing there that doesn't need to be, and everything you could need.  :)

All the best, welcome back anytime. Omega ownership is not a requirement for membership of the OOF  :)

Omega General Help / Earth Wire - where?
« on: 03 March 2018, 22:35:35 »
OK, further to my other thread where I'm trying to pinpoint a potential battery issue, I've discovered there's apparently a whole wire missing! It appears this should run from under the air con pump the the earth point under the battery tray, however I've just had a kind OOFer send me some images of his scrap motor and I can't see this. Am I wrong, or is there just a wire missing on his pics?

As my earth strap is missing, I don't actually know what it looks like, does anyone happen to have a handy pic?

As a side issue, could someone explain the technical function of this strap, please? I find it odd the car's been running (apparently) fine for maybe years without.

When I were a kid and collected various rubbish precious things from Vauxhall Dealers I kept most of it in a carboard box.

I named it the Vaux Box.

So ..... um, yeah.

Quick update, after three days on the car, from 12.7volts off the battery charger, now reading 12.12v. Not good, however I really want to confirm theres not a parasitic drain.

More updates soon.

Haha,  thanks. Ive 'put out the feelers' on this so awaiting everyone's responses!  Thanks very much for taking the time chaps!

Tried drilling the out on mine couple of years back and got sick of waiting, swapped Mr Drill for Mr Angle Grinder and they were off inseconds. As per any angle grinder work be careful, you don't want to make the metal any thinner on the actual wishbone. (it's thinner than you think, actually there)

As said above, definitely remove wishbone, also ideal time for a wire brush and repaint, as you're clearly treating these as serviceable items, rather than disposable.

WRONG!!  ::) Still in the market for one, thanks, chaps.

(Must point out this was not sent by someone on here  :))

Just a word to say I've been offered one, its already in the post.   :y

I may yet be requesting other bits, watch this space  :D

As title, if anyone's got one for price of beer money, or my first born child,  anywhere between.  ;D

I might be as well getting one from local motorfactors, but i didn't want to get sold something by nice man over the counter that would underperform compared with the original vx one.

Thanks chaps!

I'm the same as al brown, always on the lookout for Z266 Diamond Black (hence the username)

In those pics I'd swear that's Diamond Black but Mr Internet says that FLs are 'Midnight black' has anyone ever sat the two colours next to each other?
been told it's midnight black :y

Thanks, been doing interwebnet digging and diamond is a metallic,  midnight is mica. So there'll be at the very least an appreciable difference, most likely a massive one.

However if you see another thread of mine I might be in the market for a  servotronic relay,  soon haha! Cheers

Nice thinking, chaps.

Can relays fail intermittently, then? Something like a dickey relay would make my chuffing day!!
