    Default Help needed urgently!!!

    I'm looking for to parts in particular that will hopefully fix my car, this is going to be a long shot but the following parts numbers are what are required to complete to job for the timing chains.

    12609258
    12609260

    Both part numbers refer to tensions that are no longer available from Vauxhall but if I can get them else where then that would be very much appreciated.

    12596979 (12609260 )

    Nothing listed mate, would appear that they've just stopped making them.

    Just found out today vx have apparently withdrawn these parts so people have no alternative other than taking there cars to them or other authorized centers ie regal or courtney.
    This has come via the grape vine so maybe the info isn't correct.
    But wy would they discontinue without a replacement/updated part.
