    Default stage one of fitting rear electric windows done today

    when i say stage one, i mean i fitted one door lol, all i had time for, but surprised how easy it actually was to do, going to do the other side tomorrow, then book it in to vx to get the switches activated (hope they arent going to sting me by to much )

    that horseshoe clip holding the winder handle on and the plastic rivet holding the window on was the worst parts lol

    very similer, bit more complicated in the way you have to cut into a few of the wires for the motor to put the window up and down to fit, as the switches need activating with tech2. apart from that, i think its easier than the vec b ones, only 2 rivets per electric mechanism too,

    probably easier activating the switches first before fitting the kit, then its a piece of cake, but im an awkward sod at the best of times, so i end up doing it backwards lol

    Vehicle : Vectra c SRI Facelift

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2006

    When it comes to getting the window handles off get a bicycle wheel spoke and cut it about 4 inches below the "elbow" part so it looks a bike like an allen key.The flanged part acts as a hook and u can just poke it down the back and then hook the clip up on the flange part of the spoke.

    I used to do it all the time when i had an old 1996 corsa with windy windows.

    It works a treat guys i promise

    yep, easier than it looks, just annoying that you have to pay to get the switches activated
