    Urgent question, re; oil cap

    Long story but I need to get another oil cap today as mine has split

    I can get one from a mk3 but not a mk4, would this still fit??

    My engine is a 1.6 and the mk3 is a 1.6

    Thanks

    If it's a later ecotec type then it might fit. The older 8v ones definitely wont fit.

    All sorted, there were 3 boxes of oil caps to choose from, found 2 that were from a mk3 astra and one of them is a perfect fit.

    £2.00 each so not bad at all. Shame it was a 30 minute drive to get there.

    Thanks again SQ for your help.

    It was one of Pete`s that I had on the car. It came apart from the rest of the cap and the seal had split as well.

    I guess the adhesive I used just wasn`t strong enough.

    Might be better to buy a new one from Pete as the one I have could prove to be a real pain to clean up.

    Still, got a couple of spares now, just in case.
