    Only EVER buy genuine GM lifters

    cheap ebay specials should be avoided like the plague

    part number for the lifters is 9117903 and of course youll need 16

    hers a seller on ebay - might be worth contacting them for a price on all 16

    FYI the ones linked to by the previous poster were for the Z14XE lifters which are different

    being: http://www.vauxhallworldparts.com/va...umber=93174076

    X14XE = 9117903
    Z14XE = 93174076

    they may well be the same - or at least may well fit - but personally id recommend sourcing the correct PN

    The lot is best, if one is failing/failed then the rest may well be close behind. Which then leaves the expense!

    I asked one eBay seller for a price on 16 to which they replied they only had 7 for sale...not much use really!

    £160 is a superb price, if they are OEM parts it is much cheaper than the dealership.
