    Default Chassis/engine break number

    Is it the case, that when you have a part which has a chassis /engine break, that it will not fit on the newer chassis.

    For example Vauxhall World Parts have part listings that are coming up on my REG/Chassis no. 5102 but are for previous chassis no. 3199 to 4199

    I should know better, but always seem to buy cars that are on change over years, where you get several listings for parts but only 1 is correct, and motor factors always seem to manage to give me the wrong one

    it should be fine,, what part is it? btw that company although they do sell good parts do not answer enquiries but email or phone.. I have bought a fair bit from them over the years but maybe going elsewhere now due to the lack of service..

    It's the Coil pack, but my question really is in general to all parts.

    as the years went by vauxhall uprated and changed various parts on the chassis and the engines.. so its always worth quoting your engine type and the reg year etc as that way you can be sure to get the right part..

    if yours is a 1.8 for example their may be a subtle difference in the coil packs as VX changed the engine a little removed components like the EGR around 2003/4. However i would not be concerned about some of subtle differences..
