    Default Anyone know what this part no is?

    GM 10457400

    It was found outside/underneath my sister's Vectra B.

    It looks like a mini 1980's mobile phone but 3 inches high black plastic with a pipe in and a pipe out. - one out at the top (aerial end) and one in the middle

    Coming up as this.....



    Description 'Tank, battery acid'


    I'd have a look at the battery - see if anything is obviously amiss there.

    have you got a picture of it? Maybe one of the chaps with EPC/TIS might be able to get it from the part number.

    Weird!

    Batteries are sealed all around aren't they? so that eliminates some sort of device to cool/move electrolite about, does it look like it carries fluid or air?

    Check the screen washers, shot in the dark but it does look like some sort of pump, I think the battery bit might be just describing its location rather than its function, could also be someone having a giggle with you knowing you are into cars, having placed it for you to find etc.

    No, it's definitely a part relating to the battery. It comes up next to all the battery parts in the diagram, and the description seems to indicate quite clearly that it's battery related.

    Is it not some sort of vent that allows the battery to breathe when its being charged?

    It may collect vapour instead of having a tube running down the side of it which a lot of other batteries do to get the fumes away

    Don't worry about it ... I had one on my Vectra B ... It didn't look like it did anything at all apart from slot in loosley at the side of my battery.

    I thought it may be some kind of vent thing
