I tried ordering from a UK Opel part site and no luck there.

I did the searching last year. Probably should try again, but I'll wait to see if Safari 4501 has any luck.
I meant to ask.. Is Crate Engine Depot still around?? I tried to call recently and phone just keeps ringing..

Crate is still around but Tom no longer works there.

He works for another GM parts store. I forgot which one.

He tried to locate an Opel reservoir and the cap extension for me last year but he was unable to find a source.

GM Europe part numbers for the larger reservoir. # 93172093 is for a right hand drive car and part # 93172092 is for left hand drive cars.

I found this on eBay:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Porsche-Saa...75.c1#viTabs_0

There is no picture but the number is correct. There are several listings.

look at the attachments and ponder this... which part # is correct, 92 or 93?

did a quick search over here.
Found a few in The Netherlands and German.
Limited stock though (1 or 2)
Price : +- 80$
I'll contact my Opel dealer tomorrow, in Belgium. See if they're still available.

But.... I'm not making a trip to the US

(unless somebody invites me :-) )

News Anyone look at the attachment I posted???

With all the discussion, it appears no one read the last post I made on this subject or took a hard look at the parts illustration and part numbers in the attachment. The answers are there (with part numbers) and it shows the difference between the RHD (GMPP) and the LHD reservoirs looking at them in detail, not some oblique image from the performance book. Now if we can find the reservoir still available...I'm betting it is.

Anything I've found on eBay is from sellers who won't sell or ship to the US and damned if I'll pay unobtanium prices for used unknowns.

Lets see where this goes. Here's to our contacts in Europe.

If shipping to individuals from Europe is cost prohibitive, we could have one person in the US receive a case or whatever we need and he can redistribute them. Should get a volume discount.
