    You can get just the linkage for £87 from Vauxhall as I priced one up last week.

    Early Vec c,s before 5 chassis ident. are fitted with the early type linkage, and you can buy individual components or a full linkage. After 5 chassis ident. you have to buy the full linkage with the motor £205., the early and late linkages are not interchangeable as the motors are different....

    I am pretty sure that's incorrect about the motor and it's an error on EPC that falsely claims you need the motor too.

    How do I know? Because mine went, I popped to vauxhall and they tried to flog me both bits, I only bought the linkage and swapped the motors over. I told the bloke that if I need a new motor I'd collect it later on.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
