    Good news and bad news!

    Hey guys, been a bit of an expensive week so far....

    Just had a major service that cost £250 with a cambelt kit etc, where they informed me that i needed 2 new tyres, and that i had a nail in the back right! GREAT!

    The car is going in for a respray of the front bumper, back bumper and boot lid at god knows how much.

    AND

    They have kindly told me that my air con compressor is knackered!
    SO..... could anybody who has a G 1.8 Z18xe engine please tell me the part number of my air con pump as im going to try to get the pump off of the internet instead of Vaux charging me 350 quid!

    Im really hoping some of you knowledgable people can lend your assistance with this please.

    Looking forward to your responses , Cheers Mike
