    Default handbrake and indicator questions

    just got a couple of questions for you. firstly a few of days ago whilst driving home from the inlaws, as i went to indicate left the indicator stalk came off in my hand, i pulled over and looked to see if it had broke but couldt see anything obvious so just pushed it back into place. this happened again the following day and again today. has anyone else had this? it doesnt seem to be damaged and it clips back into place ok but it keeps coming out. also an issue with handbrake. i know there was a big issue with the handbrake's but dont know the story as not owned vectra for very long. basically ive noticed i have to pull the handbrake up rather high, even on relatively flat surfaces ive had the car roll slightly when the handbrake was on and had to give the handbrake another good pull. is this normal? ive been leaving it in gear but would just like some advise please. thanks car is 1.9 cdti sri 58reg

    Can't advise about the handbrake, but it's advisable to leave in gear anyway. Both the handbook and the highway code mention it.

    Neither is normal, if it's under warranty get the dealer to sort it asap
