Sorry to hear bout the hub mate hope you get that sorted and thats gd news on the mot then
seen a pair of front hubs with abs sensors from a 2.6 gsi for £40 inc p&p on ebay so if they can be dispatched early tmrw i'll have them
Always going to be unexpected parts failing but sounds like rest is okay for MoT time. Don't forget the Haynes guide MoT checks you can do yourself.
Quick update... she's booked in for her MoT next Friday, drive shaft rubber boot and a lambda sensor are known issues, hopefully no other nasty surprises.
Ended up with a new hub and track rod end, along with the wheel bearing and now with the phase 2's she handles like a dream so well chuffed
Couple of small changes.... Kamei grill (de-badged) fitted, new stereo with 4" screen for videos and reverse camera. Small Irmy stickers on rear windows (still waiting for v-s stickers to arrive, hint hint @ Dave lol
Hopefully all goes well with mot then mate
Cheers buddy, I've had her almost a year so this is first MoT we've gone through together, when the time comes I'll be untill the phone rings
Im like that when i take mine
MoT done yesterday, drive shaft boot and lambda sensor done, only failure was an abs ring which is ordered and so she'll be passed next week
well chuffed and can look forward to a weekend of sport with a big smile now > England v Scotland and Celtic v Rangers, time to crack open the and get very
so Vicky has her new MoT, although there were no problems with the brakes they have never felt as good as i'd expect, especially for a car with her power so when i spotted a set of almost new drilled and grooved discs (front and rear) on gumtree for only a tenner i grabbed them, ordered a set of new mintex pads on ebay and fitted them over the weekend and bled the brakes..... what a difference.!!
while the wheels were off i fitted new mudflaps
kamei grill was sprayed graphite grey (to match the wheels) with my own opel and v6 badges added...
also fitted reverse camera, this fitted nice and snug to the rear bumper, one wire runs to the stereo, and power is taken from the reverse light so when reverse gear is selected the stereo display switches to the rear camera...
i've put off spraying the gsi bumper until she passed the MoT so thats next on the list (when funds allow)
thats it for now folks
It's looking good buddy. I particularly like the reversing camera addition!
Nice work going on there mate keep it up but not sure on the v6 badge on the grill tho!!
Looking good mate keep it up
Was a bit of a bargain mate, only 42 quid for the stereo and a tenner for the camera, both brand new on
Not sure either mate so it may yet get removed lol
No more work done on Vicky but been busy on the last few days, set of plenums, purple gsi steering wheel, Irmy Grill and number plate surrounds and a set of hid angel eyes
Will update as these get fitted
what stereo is that mate ?
V6 badge looks chavy
its a PolarLander mate... i'd not heard of them before but had no bother with it
okay, got my plenums painted but just thought.... do i need a new gasket (inlet divider / lower plenum) before fitting.?
