Hi all
Thanks for your past help. Have just replaced the surge tank on the commodore as it had a leek on the upper nipple outlet.
I wanted to get a new cap and O ring that goes on this type cooling system but have been told by Holden it's an obseleted part( cap,surge cap and the O ring). I then asked them so if it breaks how do we get on with it.....do you have any replacement cap etc?.....all I got was silence....then a reply" go to the wreckers".
Praying our cap don't break but if it dies , has anyone been there??.
The cap is the type with an outlet that goes to another coolant tank on the passenger side of the car.
Damn I cannot upload photo!!

SuperCheap?
Repco?
Bursons?
eBay?

Edit - beaten by a minute
You would be very lucky to find anything for a gen 2 commodore from Holden's.

I'll do some hunting around this weekend at these shops to see if they have something and come back.
Pity Holden doesn't service the coolant system on this particular series vn

It's maybe 10 years since I could buy genuine Holden parts for my VQ. If you want genuine parts you just have to get used to scouring ebay, gumtree and swap meets for any reasonably priced parts.

Yes,multiple times with Friends and Family,do what the specialist Radiator Shops did for 20 years,fit a radiator with a cap and use the overflow bottle fitted to the passenger side,the pressure/surge tank on the Drivers side goes in the bin,they are a ticking time bomb on any VN older than 10 years which was 20 years ago,they can split without warning.
