My car took a hit underneath at the weekend which caused the sump plug and sump itself to be damaged so i need a new sump, i went to the scrappy today and they said they have one off a 1.8 zafira, will this fit my 1.8 astra?
Also, my car was serviced and the sump sealant was changed last Tuesday and it has now developed a bad leak from the engine, (as you look from the front of the car it would be the right hand side of the bottom of the sump where the gearbox bolts on.) I have been told this is the main oil seal gone? Is this correct?
They said that the whole gearbox and clutch will need to come out to change this, and it could be worth it putting a new clutch in, now my car has only done 47k miles so would you say this is worth it? Or could i upgrade to a better clutch, if so what do people reccomend?
