    Default 2005 Vectra C 1.9cdti Elite estate - Auto box changed to manual

    Hello, I have recently just got hold of the above (fairly cheap), it appear that it originally had an automatic gearbox, its now manual, gears select fine and it would appear to drive fairly well. I decided to have a good clean and tidy up of the engine bay, and noticed that the clutch pipe goes into the box, however there is no feed from the resevoir at all...I am very confused by this, how the hell would it have been bleed and run with no resoivior?

    I have noticed that the reverse lights didnt work, it turns out that the there are no cables going into the reverse switch on the gearbox, nor any plug on the loom, however there is a multi plug near the gearbox which has been cut.....can anyone suggest what colour wires from that multi plug that will do the reverse lights please?

    Thanks in advance....

    Did you buy from a dealer? If so I would be taking it back and telling them to fix.

    Your probably correct with that guess with all the modern wiring etc most people would'nt even attempt to try this due to hassle and possible cost.
