    Default Vectra manual covering 3.0 V6

    Hi, I have a CD based manual for the Vectra/Signum which is supposed to be the same as the dealership uses, but does not show too much. I looked at haynes manuals for up to 2005, and 2005 onwards and they all say that they do not cover the 3.0 V6 diesel.
    Anyone know any decent manuals or other sites with info on the 3.0 CDTI and fixes. I have been told a lot of stripping out has to be done to change the glow plugs. Anyone done this ?
    Many thanks,
    Mawbs.

    Mine is in for a full service today including glow plugs. Stealers have informed me that is approx a 2 hour job alone. Add 2hrs labour cost to £116 for plugs = scary

    TIS should give you the time scales and possibly even the process to follow. Yep, the V6 CDTI involves lots of removing things from the top of the engine to get to certain things.
    Renault also use the V6 CDTI engine in the Espace, the engine code is 6DE1

    Vauxhall sell the plugs for £79 for all six, including VAT, on Trade Club.
