    Default Fitting Astra VXR gear stick on a Vectra C

    As above, need some help trying to fit an Astra VXR gear stick to my vectra.

    I've been after one for a while and to my understanding if it had the housing below it, it would be an easy swap.

    However I took a punt and bought the following which doesn't have the shaft/ housing;

    Is it possible to fit this to my vectra? If I can manage to get the standard knob off, should this then fit on? Or do I need to buy the shaft/housing from an astra?

    Any advice appreciated

    I would think this would slot right on as there the same as the vectra. when i did mine i split it from the ball and swapped it over from there as i couldn't get it off from where yours is off from as it would have been easier to fit the vectra gator cover that way.

    Would of been alot easier if you had the stick there aswell, pop the old one out and pop the new one in with the balljoint at the bottom, mine has an astra VXR one. I see no reason it wouldn't work this way too, it's just alot of effort to remove the old knob, from memory the astra gaitor doesnt fit properly either.

    you will need the sri or vxr lower stick as a normal one is about the same size as the vectra stick
