    Default Oil Filter for 3.2

    Before I place an order for oil and filters, can anyone confirm that this is the correct filter for the z32se?
    The link to that filter states "Vec C 1.8 16v & V6 engines" yet there's no mention of the z32se on the page itself.

    Also, is it necessary to replace the sump plug & seal with an oil change, or just recommended?

    Thank's chaps.

    I agree it looks the same even though it says it goes up to the 2.5 Vectra B engine, but as there are 2 for the 3.2 depending on the year and filter can type I would advise getting it from somewhere you can check, i.e. Vauxhall or LMF as the price difference will warrant getting the right one.

    You may also get an o ring in the box, but is onlt recommended to renew in case the old one is frail, but again, the cost is negligable.

    K, I'll just get the oil, air & pollen filter from there, then grab the oil filter & sump bolt from the Stealers.

    I've just checked some old paperwork when I bought my oil filter from my VX dealer:

    Filter, part no. V0009192426 @ £4.86 + VAT (Big o-ring included to fit the filter canister cover)
    Sump plug o-ring, part no. V0090528145 @ £0.19 + VAT

    So looking at the VX part no., it's the same as the one from Autovaux.
