Unless its stupidly cheap, and you accept its only for a temporary test, always buy brand new.
I'm sure you're right, brand new would be safer.

Wouldn't touch Vauxhall Car Parts...they sell copy parts at retail prices...if it has an N after their number its a pattern part which you can buy cheaper elsewhere
OK, thanks, that's good to know.

So I have found 3 prices:

39.25 from Leader LSC code: 9118115 (closed for xmas/NY so I can't confirm brand)
57.75 Vauxhall brand code: 9118115 (Vauxhall car parts.co.uk)
62.79 Bosch brand code: 0221503027

Confusing!  ???

I would opt for 163054297258,being Bosch and more likely to be a better fit and better made but few ,s more.But that's just me as hate fixing something twice
Good point, I don't want to do it twice either but I can't find that no, where would you get it from?
Iv'e found 9118115: https://www.vauxhall-car-parts.co.uk/acatalog/VAUXHALL_IGNITION_COIL_-_Nos_2___4___6_-_9118115N.html
Would a Vauxhall one be a Bosch?

So I need a coil pack to replace my cracked one!
Cos I'm soooo tight I'm thinking used but then sensible head says new because it's probably not worth getting a used one!?

Are there different brands? The one I'm replacing is Bosch but I have seen this one on ebay:

Thanks.

If it had been the driver's side the 135 would have been affected  ;)

That said there's also foam underneath the scuttle trim... But water tends to run down the seam at the filler panel that form the inboard end of the pollen filter housing.
Right, thanks, good to know... :)

Thanks DG, I will get a new one then.
With regards to the bulkhead foam, if it's wet under the drivers side wiper arm hole, would that run across the foam onto the passenger side? It seems unlikely to me. I'm not certain where the water would have come from yet. The seal between the windscreen & the scuttle seems to fit really well, the foam above the passenger side is really dry when you push on it there is no moisture on your hand at all.  :-\

So, if there are small cracks on the hard plastic oblong shaped part which is attached to the rubber spark plug boot, I'm assuming the pack is a gonna?
(Iv'e taken a picture but am useless at getting them on here)

For the P1110, make sure you've plugged in the rear multiram, and that its connectors are clean.
Thanks.
I did really struggle to connect it before. I had somehow managed to bend one of the pins & it wasn't connected properly. I will take it off again & make sure the connectors are clean. I will also check out the windscreen.  :)

OK thanks.
When I changed the plugs the spark plug holes were full of water on that side, so maybe that started the problem. I have since sealed the scuttle so hopefully it wont happen again.
I will have ago at checking the sparks on that side tomorrow in the daylight.
Water in no. 6 from leak in the scuttle will cause a misfire. It doesn't often get into 4 and 2, but oil does from a leaking cam cover gasket.
The water had got into 2,4 & 6 unfortunately. The car has been sat idle for quite a while outside & not undercover....hey ho!

Did I hear my name being taken in vain.  >:(... ;D
Unfortunately I don't have one. Had to buy a new one for my own car not long after I bought it. Iirc it cost about 90.
Mr Alnico - if its easier for you, drop one off to me at work and I will take it to JDX. I reckon that would save you about 40 miles on the return journey. :y
This one looks like good value then?......

2-4-6  coil pack on way out  . . .got some  used ones here if you want to try a swap first before buying one  ;)
Thanks for the offer, I will see what I can find in the morning before I drive over but that may really help.

where in North Essex are you ?
I'm in Halstead....

Migv6  is the nearest to you as I recall . . . usually a very helpful chap to us fellow oofers . . .so  might be worth a PM to him as  he might have a 2-4-6 pack knocking about for test  purposes  :-\

When he reads this he may post up  . . or tell us to "Far Cough"  ;D ;D ;D
Thanks...I will, haven't spoken with him for ages, you're right he's only up the road from me.

Did you happen to notice the condition of the coil pack?

Can pretty much guarantee corrosion and minor cracking of the casing...
There was minor cracking yes....
