    Question Oil filler cap

    Here's the issue. I have a MK4, 1.4 Astra LS (51 plate) and the oil filler cap is loose, so much so it wriggled its way out spilling oil all over the exhaust manifold and causing lovely clouds of smoke to follow me down the dual carriageway. The RAC man (I'm sure he had a proper name too) wrapped elctrical tape around the neck and fixed it back on but thats a short term solution. Ordered a new cap online only to find there was no neck on it and it didnt screw on at all!!

    As this is my first Astra I have no idea how different the filler cap should be but the one I have looks like this:
    (but a yellow plastic top not metal)
    I can't find these anywhere (other than google images) can anyone help?

    Thanks

    I'm sure your local Vauxhall parts department should be able to sort you out.
