Omega General Help / 4 Wheel Alignment settings needed
« on: 28 April 2019, 19:47:18 »
I am just about to book the Omega 2.2i 2003 in for a 4 wheel alignment and would like to take the correct setting with me so I can double check they are correct. I was going to have it done a while back but never got around to it. I have never had one done before.

Has any one got the list or printout of all the correct settings please?


Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Central door lock actuators
« on: 25 April 2019, 15:58:32 »
I was given a front door lock actuator p/n 90493703 for my 2003 Omega. Are both front door actuators the same p/n or different?

The three pins don't look right to me from memory when I did my drivers door.


Omega General Help / Air conditioning oil question
« on: 12 April 2019, 09:58:44 »
What is the correct grade PAG oil for the o ring seals etc?


My Sons partners Nissan Note 2006 manual was in an accident and the alloy HP hose has snapped off at the dryer end right next to the rad. If I get another dryer connection part of the pipe from a scrapper can they be joined together with a compression fitting?


Omega General Help / Idler Arm part number?
« on: 26 March 2019, 10:27:13 »
There doesn't seem to be a part number on my idler arm, only GM12 SRD2. The number could be round the other side. Is this the correct part number 9195731 for my Omega 2.2i 2003 idler arm?

I put this part number in bay and it shows it for a Carlton. I think there might be 2 sizes. 

Phoned Vauxhall and they have just said the part is now obsolete.


Omega General Help / Vauxhall Omega 2.2 Saloon MOT
« on: 21 March 2019, 12:27:54 »
My Desmond has just failed its MOT and I have a couple of questions about the parts needing to be replaced.

It failed on the N/S and O/F/front Track rod end ball joints. I have 2 new ones that came with the ATP front wishbone control arms from Germany as part of the kit I ordered a way back.
The brand ARE Atec Are these any good?

Is it worth me putting the new front drop links on the car that was also in the kit while I'm under there?

The rear shocks need replacing, are the BILSTEIN b4 Rear Shock Absorbers still recommended and are all the 2.2, 2.6 and 3.2 all the same? Any one know where I can buy 2x new ones in the UK?


General Car Chat / peugeot 207 2008 strange brake problem
« on: 08 December 2018, 09:40:26 »
My Sons friend wants me to look at her brakes for her. About a week ago she drove the car and found the brake pedal was spongy.

If the brakes are pumped a few times so they go firm the car will do a full journey and the brakes will feel normal. But after going shopping for the return journey the brakes have to be pumped again until firm and then they will be fine for the whole journey back.

Passenger side where the servo is there is a very notable load hiss from inside the car that disappears, once the brakes have been pumped and firm up before a journey. The hiss is not there throughout the journey. I have not had chance to test the car myself yet. 

What do you think the problem is, servo going bad?

For the past few days, every time I unlock the the car with the fob the doors re-lock straight after.

Omega General Help / Air con fan question
« on: 29 August 2018, 17:02:19 »
Just had the air con re-gassed and noticed a change in how the fans are working.

Its a 2.2 2003 with 1 fan in front of the condenser and 1 fan at the back of the radiator. Both fans are running all the time with the air con on and that is normal.

After the re-gas the fan behind the radiator keeps turning on to the highest fan speed and back off again, every few seconds.

I have owned the car for over 4 years and not once did it ever do this. The engine temperature is normal, so its not an over heating problem.

Is this normal and if it is why has it only started to do this now after 4 years?


Can the rear heat shield on a 2.2 petrol 2003 be fully removed when the exhaust is still in place?

« on: 25 July 2018, 10:49:45 »
I need to renew the rear discs. They are the solid disc type on 2.2 2003.
