haha. Good to know.

Yeah, I certainly wouldnt want to pay that (especially  as it's used, might break in a day, or 100k, who knows?) but just saw it and thought I'd offer it, just in case.

PFLs have a different type, which I've only ever seen on Vectra Bs, and my spare one came off a Corsa B 1.0 12v, oddly. I did check in case I'd picked up one of the later type by mistake, in which case I'd have offered it to you, but alas no.

I wouldn't particularly pay that price for one, but there is one of the heebay

Easy to miss as not got the right 'tag words' in the title. Appears a different part number but looks identical to me.

Seconded. Best practive/OOF advice is to redo the whole suspension in one go. Seems expensive/wasteful but it really is actually the cheapest way of doing it, because you're talking about parts that will all wear out eventually.

The strainer/teabag on the underside needs to come off. .... "they just pull off", so I had a duff pump...and the plastic collar just snapped on me! i am a methodical, pragmatic, non-ham-fisted sort of James Mayish person. So take it steady, I'd suggest a twisting action, also pry it down with a flatbladed driver, don't strain the plastic collar inside. Did another one that way and came off a dream.


As above squeeze/pinch the tabs in, you can do it one tooth at a time, then move round, do the next, and so on.  :)

As I said the the guy in the ring at the VBOA this year, the Omega was the last working man's rear-drive executive saloon. Highly unlikely we shall see the like again. Damn fine cars.

ahhh.... going off this site

https://www.gmpartsgiant.com/parts/gm-valve-90297538.html

based on the part number, that's where I got my size of M7 1.00. So if the fronts are M8 1.25, and the fronts and rears are both M8, does this stand to reason the rears must be M8 1.00?

Far as I can tell, the rears are M7 1.00 .... can anyone confirm this? Just started work on my refurbed rear calipers and discovered the bleed nipples in the sealed bag I've had kicking around for months seem to be for the front calipers! NO idea where I've put the rear caliper ones!

« on: 19 July 2018, 21:55:28 »
The official Vauxhall line is (I think) 1mm below the roofskin at the front, 2mm up at the rear, so the whole thing is very, very slightly angled 'down' like a spoiler. Adjusted wrong this can generate wind noise. Theoretically sunroofs are plentiful, most Omegas had them, should you wish to change.

Good to know thanks.  :y

It was that company form die Faterland what bring over brand new original Opel parts. Pricey (ie: often more expensive than it was new, even factoring in inflation) but shouldn't knock them as they have 'everything', even Monza inner wings, which only a few years ago were literally unobtainable.

Anyone has a scabby irmscher wheel for free that I can re-cover let me know  :D

I refer the Honorable Gentleman to my earlier answer "You can safely peel each off from the rear arch, clean it up and re-stick it."  :y

Mine had rust on them too. Alcohol, white spirit, surgical spirits (what I used) will dissolve the glue, and bring off the rust with it. It was painstaking, took time, but given it's something I expect I'll be doing only once every 22 years or so, a couple of hours seemed a fair investment  :D

I think I used an old credit card as a scraper, washing up sponge, the usual stuff you'd use to get glue off something. If new stickers are not available, then it can be done  :)

Just done my rear badge, got mine off the bay of e

I'm a right picky bugger when it comes to replicating original factory stuff on my car and I have to say, I think this stuff was 100% spot on.

I'll admit to making a template of the badges, tracing it onto masking tape, applying this on the foam tape, then carefully cutting round the lines using a scalpel. In reality (and someone with less tie on their hands  :D) making thin strips you stick on the easy letters (ie: ones made from straight lines) would be 10times quicker and 90% as effective.

As a Cleethorpes lad (ie: the town next door/clumped next to/glued together with Grimsby/one side of one street is in Grimsby, the other in Cleethorpes, that's how dolloped together the two towns are) yes, you can get cod, Haddock, and a couple of places will do you skate, shark etc. We've only the one thing to be proud of, really, and that's fish n chips done well. If she can't find cod, she's not looking hard enough!  ;)
