    Default bought a vectra !!

    at long last i have sold the lexus and yesterday bought a vectra

    its the 2.2 petrol sri in silver 52 plate and i must say im liking it so far it has 1 or 2 little problems like passanger window switch playing up and cruse control only working if the clutch is pulled up a little !

    i do have a question the rear exhaust pipe is very corroded and looks horrible but i thought the sri had the chrome trim on them ?

    can this be bought seperatly ?

    Welcome to the site mate

    it could be that the previous owner has replaced the original with a cheaper back box? you do see a few with plain pipes on them.

    Not suprised people do this, as a vauxhall backbox is £200+

    Welcome to the site. The cruise control, sounds like you need a new/replacement return spring on the clutch pedel.

    I have not replaced the spring myself. But I think if you are good with spanners you should be able to do it. Several members on here have changed theirs themselves though.

    It's not too bad to change the clutch return spring at all really and the passenger switch should pop out easily enough and if you're careful you can as I did, take it apart and with some switch cleaner give the rubber key pad and board a clean and all should well with it , incidently with the clutch spring, some I believe managed to crawl under there and change it without removing lower trim etc, I couldn't as I'm a fat *******, so had to remove it, but even so doesn't take long to do it.
    Cheers Pete
