    oil filter and drain are locted on the rear of the engine just above the ehaust pipe and drive shaft, comes out of the block at a slight angle..beware if you're underneath it thou,, there is a small stub tube coming out of the side of the housing and oill will drain from it when you undo the filter (32mm socket on the black end housing.)..Beware the sump bolt as well, they're soft and far too easy to round off..13mm socket..

    all located through the drop down flap in the undersheild at the rear of the sheild,(4 x phillips dzus fastners)

    The fuel filter is a drain only annually and a replacement bi - annually..

    remove clip-in lines, unscrew top housing collar and withdraw, change element and re-fit top housing and lines...turn ignition to get the dash lights on and let it sit there for about 30 seconds, this will prime and bleed the filter..start engine and it should run with no airlocks in the system..

    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 000

    Default

    Is there supposed to be a plastic tray like cover under the engine bay on the 3.2V6 engine as mine does, not have one, maybe they never fitted one from new, any one with a 3.3V6 have you got one under your engine....

    this is actually useless unless the car is on a ramp. i had to remove the entire shield, around 8 or 9 torx screws, pain in the back side!

    nope.. none were ever fitted to the 3.2 Ed..they were fitted to the diesel to get them through the 'drive-by' noise regulations, similarly they have an acoustic top cover as well to help deaden noise..

    whereas the petrols, not having so much 'Knock' as the diesels don't need one.

    Here's the procedure for removing the oil filter on a 1.9 120. You're gonna love it - it's a beaut!! It involves removing a wheel and disconnecting part of the steering knuckle!!!!
