Hub grease cap replacement?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know of a cross reference for a hub grease cap for my s2? It looks very similar to the mini grease cap but the diameter is smaller. The grease cap looks like this :

Hi Vin they are different in shape also.

SJ list them but if you want to try other sources well:

Opel Ascona hub, Ascona bearings, Ascona disc and Ascona vertical link and dustshield so....

and all the other oldtimer Opel suppliers and the price is about half of SJ.

Ciao

Hi Giorgio,

Thanks for the information. Are the lower links the same as the esprit? I bought a set of lower link bushes (the conical ones) before I found out mine has the upgraded version were the bushes are straight rather then conical :(

Yes, the lower links are the same but on the early S1 the bushes were conical and from Opel, later Lotus improved the bushes for the Esprit and the lower links have to be modified to fit the Lotus Metalstick bushes.

Hi Giorgio,

So it wouldn't be possible for me to get a set of non-conical bushes for my lower links from an Opel specialist?
