    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : Energy

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 131,000

    Default

    Think it has been done, however yes it will be a substantial job, as nearly all switches, trims etc will need to be removed to swap dash panels...

    note also that some parts, such as the air vents are a slightly different shape - more rounded on the face-lift dash

    If you know exactly what you are doing, then I would say about 5 hours to do...
    otherwise, I would allow an entire weekend.
    And that is IF you have everything to hand...
    That is you don't find any parts that won't fit the replacement dash panel.

    Done it on mine as some one before me ripped part of the dash by airbag as its very delicate

    Took me and my brother a couple of hours to replace top dash and centre console and i have to say it was easy.
    Once stereo and vents are out and centre console,glovebox,lower steering wheel shroud its very easy to do any problems pm me
