    Default Boot Handle in Estate

    Hi Guys,

    New to the forum and having been a Calibra owner and forum user, am looking forward to you guys helping out with my Vectra Estate... WHICH I have had for over 3-years and is not the most exciting or fastest car I have ever owned, but It's easily the best!

    Right... First question, does the inner boot handle (to close the boot when it's open) of any other Vectra fit the Estate tail gate. I've never had that handle on my car (I fitted a piece of wood 3-years ago to "plug the gap" and want to put a proper one on!

    Only issue is hardly any estates being broken and can't get the part cheaply (tried parts247, eBay etc.)... So does the Vectra Hatchback handle fit/match the one in the Estate???

    Look forward to hearing from you soon.

    having had both as company cars I think the only differance is the veccy estate is more heavy. both handles I think are the same. never noticed any differant.

    Hi mublin, Thanks for the advice. It never occured to me that the Hatch back may have the same handle as the estate, I guess it opens over your head like the estate, so why shouldn't it?!?!?

    My only issue is... I have never seen what handle I need as my car has never had one!!!

    If I'd had one on my car and broke it lets say, I could have a look at a hatch back one and say if it was the same.

    So its good to know that you think they are the same (would make sense from a cost/production point of view if they were).

    Would be good to get a general concensus though.

    Ben

    Yeah thats what I'm gonna do; like i said, just didn't know if the Estate handle was the same as the Hatchback ones, but like you said - you're pretty sure they are identical

    why not just get a new handel? its just a replacement with 1 bolt and a bit of melting to put in a new one..

    but its actually not the same as on the hatch ect. (it might fit thou)

    The handles are all the same IIRC, just get a new one from your local dealer, they arent expensive, I replaced mines last year.

    Ok cool... will try a dealer, but I hate Vauxhall dealers with a passion, I've been nothing but ripped off from them for the past 10 years, which is why I never go near them unless I have to. Basically I don't wanna pay more that £15 for one as it's a piece of plastic, but I know what dealers are like.
