    Default Z18XER (1.8VVT) Cam Solenoids

    Anyone know where I can get these cheaper from... Stealers have them but at £££

    Vauxworld Parts my usual haunt for stuff, doesn't list them, and EBAY ones are questionable quality I'm led to believe.

    Any thoughts guys, as mine are giving up.

    Cheers,

    Matt

    Pop the filters out of them first before buying new ones.

    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRi Nav

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 130k

    Default

    I think if like mine the tick tick tick tick from a cold start is a sign. I know they do it as standard being a vvt but mine is a lot louder now than it ever used to be. Mind you im getting very close to 100k

    Take the filters out first, I did a how 2. Normally you get the EML and fault codes when they fail and the car goes into limp mode.

    No fault lights or poor running.
