    Default I'm Backkkkkkkkk

    After selling the Signum and going to an Astra for a while, and then a dreadful Pug 307, I am now back in a Vectra-C again :-)

    52 plate with Irmscher goodies galore and 19" snowflakes to boot.

    However I do have a couple fo questions, it has had a MIJ cat back dual exit , exhaust fitted, that (now I am a bit older) is too loud for my liking, so I am going to take it off, do I need to just change the 2 rear boxes or do they remove a middlebox as well meaing I would require a cat back system??? I have seen a dual exit section on ebay so need to know.

    Other bit is the cruise control button seems a bit dodgy ie press it and the green symbol on dash flashes once but does not function any ideas on this??

    Thanks and nice to be back and promise pictures tomorrow :-)

    Back Perry

    Depends whats been fitted to your car Perry,i'd guess that it would be a Cat-back system,cruise control might be the a weak spring on the Clutch pedal,hth...........

    Cheers, it's the 2.2 engine (not direct) and quite loud, nice sounding on tick over but noisier if you put your foot down!!

    glenboy, on the receipt it says cat back, so would I need to replace the whole exhaust from cat back again??

    Maybe swap with someone ??

    As for CC how would I check the spring?? Or is it something I can't ??

    I could be up for a swap as i have a standard twin setup?..

    You could try and lift the clutch pedal from below with your foot to make sure its up at its highest point and see if the cruise control works then?
