26. STRIP,DAMPER,FUEL TANK STRAP,LH - part # 90571733
28. PLATE,PROTECTION,FUEL TANK - part # 24408878

Probably not a good idea to remove the fuel tank cover plate as it can become corroded around the fuel tank, so you will have to ascertain whether one of the straps has become damaged or just a nut and bolt is required to resecure the cover.

Kevin saving the day again, do you work for Vauxhall?

Is 28's part number correct as its shorter than the rest?

Also just a suggestion, change your number to a premium one, hand it to me.... I'm sure your earn big bucks at this rate.

Haha - I probably could :LOL:

Sorry, I left off the last digit - I have now edited the above post. There are still many 7 digit part numbers, but the majority are 8 digit.

I quite like that idea! (y)

Damn, I noticed aftermarket ones online say they fit all the NA range apart from the 2.0T so was hoping that would be the same. Kevin do you attend any of the car shows like PVS?

That's a bit of a shame, but so many company's don't bother to check the parts they're selling for compatibility with the relevant models/engines.

I haven't attended any of the shows like PVS yet, as my Vectra B is totally standard - not really a 'Performance Vauxhall'. :LOL:

the full cover 24408878 is now no longer available from vx there is no stock in the UK or germany i think they were saying that if there were 100 orders they would get the tooling out and make more

You will have to be careful that the tank cover is not 'flapping' about putting too much pressure on the other side otherwise there's the possibility it may shear off completely.
It's more likely that one of the straps has corroded (probably the drivers side looking at your photo) which is still available from GPS (http://www.genuinepartsearch.co.uk) at £27.06. The clamping nuts and bolts also available from AutoVaux.

Yeah I believe so Carl, got a friend to get it attached back up. I don't know if your know but my EGR has a balnking plate where would I locate the wires that normally go to it, as I cant see them anywhere?
