    Always a smart arse about when you don't need one.

    Some of us aren't car experts.
    Some of us have health issues that mean we can't always do even the easy jobs
    Some of us therefore need to ask what something is and how easy a job it is to do before starting
    Some of us thought that was what this forum was for
    Some of us were obviously wrong


    And, yes, some of us are ****ed off

    Not to be a "smart arse" too, but if you're 1. Not a car expert and 2. can't even do the 'easy' jobs, take your car to garage and get it fixed properly if something is hanging off it, before someone gets hurt in it

    Cheers, I get the concern ( thanks)

    If it is a matter of jacking and shoving back then I can do that - its exactly why I put the post. Anything more and I'll be ringing the garage in the morning ( Although as I can't drive at the moment it may wait)

    Hard to tell what it is properly on the photo but it looks pretty hefty, can't imagine it being a simple jack up and put back into place job.

    But, if you had taken the time you just spent ranting at southpole you could have explained a little which would have helped?

    Also, you could have filled out your profile so anyone knows what car/engine your talking about or put that in the question.
    So come on, with such lack of information and a short none descriptive text what he said is the answer isn’t it? It’s hanging down so put it back, easy.
    I know pole can be a bell at times but the answer does fix what’s been asked.

    Reading the rest of the post I can’t even imagine what that can be on a 2.8 elite. Maybe more pics taken around it and even under and from further back so we can see what you have would help. But then you’d see what’s wrong from the same pics wouldn’t you?
    What I do to learn is search and look at similar vectra engined pictures on google, I’d also suggest you go through car diary’s by people with 2.8’s and see if they have posted pictures of similar looking things for you to match it up to. That’s what I’d do but I love to learn so
    Not saying you don’t though.

    Oh, come on dB. Did you not see my smiley at the end?

    Yes, I was a little peeved - it's been a bad few weeks - but I'm also used to this forum and the sarcasm / humour that goes with it.

    Bit difficult to get more pics without jacking up first - it just appears to be a hollow plastic, slightly rectangular tube.

    I didn't think an image like that would work well on image search ( I've used that a few times since you suggested it before) but I'll give it a try just in case
