    Default vectra 2.2 sri new owner

    Hi everyone , just bought a vectra 2.2 sri last week, great car but one or two teething problems . there seems to be a bearing noise coming from the left hand side of the engine block, any help would be greatful. Apart from that its sound as a pound, i too have the problem with the passenger window switch but i have read the section on how to fix so will give it a go.Hope you are all helpful on this forum as were the evo forum. Car only done 77k very good condition and the mpg is very good. Thanks every one.

    Is it the left side as you stand in front of the car, looking at the engine ?

    Assuming this is a 2.2 petrol, not diesel - the timing chain is located there and can make a noise if going dry or needs replacing. Do you know when the cam chain was replaced ?

    But welcome, and it is a great car !!

    Welcome mate. As said, is it the airbox side or the battery box side? If its the airbox side you need to get it looked at straight away.
