90412453...the rectangular rubber "bung" which gives access to the torque converter bolts.

Whilst doing oil change today noticed mine has left the building .....anybody got 1 spare please.



I think an unknown aged AC compressor thats been off a car and not had oil/gas running through it keeping all the seals supple is too big a gamble when you consider the cost to gat it refitted and gassed up only to find its "still leaking".

Buy new and have a certain peace of mind and if Serek is fitting it will be done properly and work as designed  :y

Think you would be wiser buying new inplace of 2nd hand as for the effort and time fitting to find the " God 2nd Hand Unit" has dried out seals and leaks as bad as the unit it is replacing.

From my experience with AC its nice and worth having but expect to spend big when it packs up...£200 for a new compressor would be my route Ken :y

I used them on my old Elite and worked fine.They are thicker and not quite as flexible as VX originals so take abit of threading around and if I remember #6 is too long so will require some routing .

Seems to me that POLMOstrów (Polmo) in Poland is the only firm still manufacturing Omega exhausts. Parts have an embossed 'P' logo.

I believe one of the other members was recently able to get one from here. I believe, but you should check, that kit 351 is a Saloon (Sedan) and kit 353 is an Estate (Kombi). They list shipping costs of €15 and 4 days to the UK.

You may have to pay VAT and a clearance fee. Shouldn't be any duty as it's under the limit of £135.00. You could ask.

They don't list Vauxhall parts separately so you're looking for Opel Omega B parts.

I had the 350 kit for a 2.5 some years ago. It was fine and shipped from Germany in less than a week. A perfect fit. Eternal car also supplied the Polmo parts.

One irritation with all of the exhausts, including Eternal Car, is that they have taken to cutting the downstream pipes near the centre boxes. They supply sleeves to join them back together. This is to reduce the length of the shipping carton and presumably the shipping cost. In principle this should not be a big deal however we found it's more difficult to get everything properly aligned without the use of a ramp.

The having the middle pipe cut is a real PITA as aligning things is not simple ,but doable on proper ramp :y

Budget for 2 new coil packs aswell as they will be oil fried too.Worth also doing the 6 plugs whilst you are in that far as that way you have dealt with some of the common V6 issues and protected things for a few more years.

Did this on my old Elite when had similar issues.

I cut the "quick push connector" off the pipe.Then pushed a nylon pipe joiner with differing sizes each end..think it was called a pipe reducer.... into the end and secured with a jubilee clip.Then found a piece of pipe the best size to fit onto the matric stub end and joined the 2 sections together.

Looks abit Heath Robinson but solved the issue and saved trying to source a NA pipe.

Think the reducer was sold for fish ponds or similar

Be lucky if it does 60mph ;D

Pass is always good and another worry to put to bed.

Mine had a small rust patch on the inner wheel arch by the steering box.What looked like a small area turned into a much larger job and required NickW to spend 2 days cutting/shaping and welding patches in place.We were worried the steering box mounts were rusted too but managed to repair albeit a temporary fix..2 years later and each MOT passed so all good but dont ignore rust in the inner wing/steering box area and keep fingers crossed is not too far gone...just saying
