    Talking V6 Tim aka "Tim" from VVOC

    Hi all, just picked up my Vectra C this afternoon, it's a 2006 SRi hatchback, 3.0 V6 CDTi in metallic black. Nothing fancy or anything about it, it has lowish mileage of 46k though. Absolutely bog standard car, no nav or bodykit etc, std cloth SRi trim. Nice and clean but does need machine polishing to remove scratches in the clear coat.

    Fitted brand new velour gen Vxl mats when I got home (won them on ebay for £15 the other day).

    Couple of probs already, rear wiper won't work, the washer jet works fine, just the wiper motor isn't engaging when I flick the stalk/switch, unless it is on very slow timer/relay?

    No rear boot light, has been disconnected and it isn't in the boot.

    Cruise control worked for some of the time on the way home, now I can't seem to get it to engage again for longer than a split second?!

    Some of you may know me from VVOC.com, I was a North West rep for a while.

    Cheers

    Tim

    Hi all, here's the ebay link to the sellers advert, I got a little bit of money off the listed sale price: -

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1107379340...84.m1423.l2649

    Its clean and straight, but not up to my standard yet, won't be able to spend much time on it though as I have a job interview to prep for which is going to be hard going.

    Welcome to the forum Tim. The clutch return spring will need renewing. Pennies from the dealer.

    As a tester, nip off for a drive, get up to a speed you want to cruise at, pull your pedal back up with your foot underneath it and flick on your cruise. It should work now
