    You should test the resistance using a circuit tester but to be honest I am not sure what the correct resistance should be but it will be on the forum somewhere.

    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : CDTI 150 (Z19 DTH)

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 100k

    Default

    I always replace all 4 when one fails - as the others will be not far behind.

    I also think these should be a 60k (ish) service item. they swell when covers 100K's of miles and thats what causes them to break in the head when removed,
