    Default Vectra C 3.2 GSi CIM module

    I need to replace the CIM module on my Vectra but I need to know if this is the correct part. I've been told the module is behind the steering wheel but I've got no idea how to take it apart and I'm a bit scared I'll ****** it up and I'll be doomed as I need car for work.

    The part number is 13165350 EC

    Any help would be great as I also need help in fitting it (anywhere around Essex would be great)!

    Its not just a straight swap. You will need your car pass with the codes on it and it will need to be paired to the cars systems with a tech 2 or similar.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    The car pass is a card (normally credit card size) with all the codes printed on it for your car. if you don't have one you will need one, usually in with the hand books etc.

    Also your new one maybe tech 2 clear, but it will need coding to your car. If this wasn't required then it wouldn't need to have been tech 2 cleared

    Go to your local VX dealer and get one, there is a fee of about £25 depending on the dealer.
