    Hi Everyone, Just wondered if anyone can help me on a couple of questions.

    I recently joined the site and wanted some feedback or advice on a couple of points.
    My car is a September 2004 Signum 3.0 CDTi Design Manual.

    1. I love the car and recently had the second year Vauxhall Service. I complained about a squeaky clutch pedal. They checked it and reported that it had already had the modified component fitted. See how it goes. It still squeaks. Any advice.
    2. The Chrome mouldings which run alond the side of the door tops are discoloured and appear to have all gone the same. Is this warranty does anyone know?

    Finally my drivers door mirror was hit by another car coming the other way tonight. The casing is smashed and the mirror glass gone. Anyone have a spare unit. The car is Black but I guess I can respray to match.

    Thanks guys.

    Appreciate your help if you can.

    Welcome to the site.

    You should really have posted this as a new thread mate as it has nothing to do with K&N panel filters.

    1. This is a fairly normal occurrence on most vectras. A lot of the time its caused by lateral movement of the pedal. See if you can get to it and tighten the pedal on its mount. If not, apply some LM Grease to the clutch pedal mount.

    2. You should be able to claim for the chrome strips under warranty. The new ones will probably do the same.

    Hi mate,

    The clutch pedals can feel heavy and squeel especially on the diesel models. There is a clutch spring modification but to be honest it didn't make much difference on my 03 model.

    The chrome strips are a common fault. I have seen Vectra's and Signums under a year old with this tarnishing problem. As far as i'm aware Vauxhall will only replace them within the first year of warranty. I would try haggling with the dealer though, Vauxhall should be aware of the problem as its' commonly mentioned on here. The trims are quite expensive for what they are so i would haggle and meet half way.

    Paul.

    someone did post up that a little light cutting paste would restore the window trims to 'as new'.. never tried it, but if you get no joy from VX i'd give it a go..

    I use Megs NXT Wax as it has a little polish in it. Give it a buff and they come up a treat.
