    Default 2004 1.8 Vectra Service

    Im planning on doing a full service on both my Vectra's in the comming weeks...

    Both are Z18XE with one doing 61k and the other 89k.

    From research I have worked out I should do the following..

    Pollen Filter
    Air Filter
    Fuel Filter
    Spark Plugs
    Oil Filter and new oil
    Fluid top up of breaks and coolant (if needed)

    Is there anything to be added to that list (belts wise, both have had timing belts changed in the past 2 years and within 20k miles)


    I found this kit on ebay which looked like good price...?
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/Vehicle-Pa....8+service+kit

    Pollen filters are cheap on ebay also... (but is this one any good..?)

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-V...item33668ec715

    So that leaves the oil and the sump plug copper washer... Where is the best places to get these from... and what ones (oil grade etc) should i get for this engine?

    not sure on the new vectra for the water pump... i had it done on mine however.

    The power steering is making a whine and a quick check shows the fluid is below the dip stick level so will need to top that up as well.

    Can do the coolant but how do you do the breaks (possibly one for the mechanic...!)

    you can pick up a good proper sump plug and copper washer from halfrauds, then you can use a proper socket on it..

    Use an Eezibleed for the brakes - if your not sure - best to get someone to show you first time as you dont want to muck about with brakes if your not 100% sure..

    Random other thing....

    The boot bumps stops... One of them had broken and freely twists in the socket resulting in the boot lid moving...

    So need to order a new one... Will try the scrapys but does anyone have the vauxhall part number should I decide to order one?

    Don't forget to change the batteries in your key fobs, especially the spare one you keep in a drawer at home, often neglected and when you need it, it's flat!
