    Default Noisey Roof Lining - Help!!!

    Hello All

    im new to this forum, but have a problem with my vectra which i hope someone can help me with.

    I have recently purchased a vectra estate and in the last couple of weeks it has developed a creaking noise coming from the roof lining / roof in the B pillar area.

    does anyone know how i can remove the lining to have a llok at what is casuing the problem?

    im a bit of a novice but have a good techincal back ground, so im not affade to give it a go myself.

    If anyone can halp please do

    Welcome to the forums. There is a 'How2' Guide in this forum as to how to remove the head lining of the Vectra C hatchback to replace the arial base properly.

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=82432

    Unfortunately its not an estate like yours but may be a big help as a guide when it comes to removing the seat belt and side airbags. Basically its not easy and you have to remove ALOT of stuff! I was considering doing it to replace my Ariel base due to the perished rubber but when I saw how tricky it was I reconsidered it!

    Hope this begins to point you in the right direction. Good luck!

    Buy a cheap sponge, and wedge it between the roof and the headlining where its rattling, problem solved, you dont necessarily have to drop the headlining all together just find the rattle and drop the nearest corner. Hope this helps.
