    rolleyes Vectra C 2.0 DTI camshaft cover tiny cracks?

    Hi,

    today I have noticed on the top of my Vectra C y20dth 2.0 DTI engine

    aluminum camshaft cover few tiny cracks, exactly where there is right arrow engraved on the cover near left side of the oil cap.

    They are 3 hair tiny cracks long about half inch merging in mercedes star like formation, no oil leak not sure how deep they go, do I need to worry and change the cover now? If the answer is yes any idea what the part number will be?

    Have no idea how this think works is there any pressure inside?

    Or I am getting paranoid here

    thank you

    cheers
    Valko

    I dont think you need to worry m8 mine has several hair line cracks in it especially around the filler cap area .
    I polished a lot of the cracks in mine out with a buffing kit. but some are stress cracks obviously created when the head was pressed

    and still loving it
