  1. Had a couple of these Zafira's over the years, engine light was often MAF sensor, usually with a flat spot around 3000 revs. Under £20 on ebay for a new one.

    Not sure what they cost back then, but I sold a 1986 Mk1 XR4x4 in 1996 for £2,000 - needed the money for a deposit on my first house.

    Cracking project to be doing, good luck with it!
  4. Fully agree, love seeing the care and dedication you're putting in to this. Think I might price up doing the suspension on my Zafira as its seen better days......
  5. To be honest my back is pretty fucked, more to do with being a fat lazy sod though! I find it really comfy, I reckon the seats have been molded over the miles to snugly support my ample arse, I do like a slightly raised driving position it feels like I throw myself to the floor when I get in our Vectra. Watching a fat fucker grab hold of the roof to hoist themselves out of a car is never a good look! First ATF change at 100k then every 50k since. Can't change it all cos of torque converter and radiator, holds 7 litres can get 3 litres out just removing the sump bolt then another litre comes out if I jack the gearbox up a bit, so 4 fresh litres every 50k seems to keep it going alright.
  6. My 2007 diesel Zafira hit this milestone the other day
  7. Thanks for the warm welcome folks - I'm based in Derby
  8. Hi everyone, I've been lurking far to long so thought It best to join in the fun. Nothing notable shite wise at the moment, just a high mileage diesel Zafira, Vectra diesel estate and an ungrateful hateful bastard of a Shogun, so all prime shite in a few years/or now depending of your point of view! I had a nice collection of tat a few years ago but life got in the way, but I'm thinking of having another go at it. High/lowlights: Mk1 Cavalier sportshatch Mk3 2.0 laser Capri Series 3 XJ6 Series 2 Daimler XJ6C - really regret letting this one go Series 2 XJ6 Vauxhall Senator 2.5 A2 Vauxhall Victor 2.3 FE Mk1 Fiesta And quite a few more but this is the most I've ever typed on a public forum so I'll stop, as I do have a habit of going on........... Cheers Popsicle
