Omega General Help / Steering dust covers MOT advisories.
« on: 09 May 2024, 16:54:43 »
Took one of the 3.2's in for a MOT today, and got some advisories. i.e track rod end ball joint dust cover damaged or deteriorated X2,. Also Steering linkage ball joint dust cover damaged or deteriorated. So took a look on ebay, but came away clue less, as it seems that there appears to be a range of sizes. Any advice as to the correct items would be appreciated. TIA :y

I have tried the ideas offered, but all the bulbs are to long and won't seat. So possibly that's why the H1 was used as they are a bit shorter and fit, maybe as a bodge. So will have to have a rethink, and have a look through Halfrauds bulb shelf, just to see if they have a 35w/55w H1 option.

Thinking that Dr G's route is a strong option, it may be time to upgrade a bit. Just needed to know whether anyone had any problems in their past owner ship. Also thanks for the info on the MOT regs. :y

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Irmscher fog light bulbs.
« on: 20 April 2024, 17:24:16 »
A couple of my cars have a fog light out, and as the MOT's are due in a few weeks, thought a couple of new bulbs.. job done. But when I took one of the non working bulbs out ,it's an H1, and not knowing the history on the car I wouldn't know whether that is the correct bulb  fitment for the Irmscher bumper. I know that the H1 or the HB4 are for the standard Omega fog lights, but that H1 gets really hot in those small Irmscher fog light housings, and was wondering, if anyone knows what is the  correct bulb and required wattage is. TIA

My recent experience of giving away free stuff, hasn't been great. It works OK until the interested parties start making the rules, about not wanting to pick up the parts and can it be posted, because they can't be arsed to make the effort. Sadly now, it's all boxed up and it's going to the dump on my next trip...lesson learn't ::)

Agree with you James, tbh I'm thinking that most of the sellers on ebay are just trying their luck on the pricing. Many of the cars have pending tinworm problems, and then when it comes to MOT, cambelt and service history, it can get a bit sketchy there also. But I'm continually getting messages about selling my cars, and although they are realistically 1000 cars,as most of them are on ebay, and I'm 20-30k down the road at least on upkeep. I would still be embarrassed to be asking the sort of money that some people are asking for on ebay/FB  But then having said that....go silly on the prices, and that would be a very handy boost to a deposit on a KIA Stinger :-\ .....nope, just dreaming!

Quick question re the oil pressure switch, took a quick look at it this morning after finding that I didn't have a 24mm spanner. So a trip to Halfrauds for one and, nearly 12 without any KY, I'm now looking from the top and have found the switch. But looking at access...can I get a better shot at it by having the car jacked and doing it from underneath? :-\
