    Vehicle : Vectra c SRI Facelift

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2006

    Default SRI facelift grill question

    On a standerd 1.9cdti SRI facelift is the front grill(upper one with the badge on it) solid or does it have vents for airflow?

    Im not sure if the grill on my car is standerd as its solid with no source of airflow though it and due to the main intake pipe sitting behind it is there a chance that its getting starved of air?

    Heres a link to some pics,its a bit dark but maybe somebody couls identify the grill

    Looks standard - I took mine apart recently for it to be sprayed and it ha a solid part behind the mesh. I was advised to leave it and not cut it out.

    Mines solid as well. Have thought about putting holes in it for better airflow but haven't yet.

    My signum 1.9 cdti has a solid grill. I assume this is to stop water getting into the air intake which can cause hydrolock.
    I'd leave it alone personally.
    Whethere they are open for the bigger engines to aid cooling, not 100% sure.
