    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : Z20NET

    Year : 04

    Default The notorious travel assist base the definitive thread

    Just won one of these on the understanding that it will take a long time (if ever) to get the necessary parts to fit it to my Vectra.

    I've searched and searched for a definitive list of information on this subject and it's sketchy to say the least.

    I'm aware that Vauxhall don't supply the fitting kit anymore but for starters can someone post the part number(s) for the fiting kit (including base) for the Vectra C. I've seen the part number for what I beleive to be the travel assistant AND fitting kit.
    I know at least one name on here that has this correct number.

    Secondly, this base that is so hard to come by simply looks like a pressed piece of metal, surely if someone offered there's up they could be replicated by a fabricator fairly easily? I know of two fabricators up here who could carry out such a task.
    There seems to be plenty of availability on the travel assist units but not on the bases and fitting kits because people don't remove them from the car along with the unit, instead assuming the unit will fit any other Vec C/signum regardless.

    Thirdly what exactly is needed bar the unit itself to get this into a Vectra C.

    You seem prepared to go to a lot of effort to get one fitted. Will it be worth it? You'll get the majority of the same usefulness with an electric cool box from Halfords.

    Thing is I don't think it's alot of effort at all, the electrics can all be DIY'd I'm sure uf It came to it I could knock something up myself as a base plate, just wanting to see what cones of this first.
    I like OEM novelty things, that is my reasoning for doing this

    Wasting your time mate imho. The fitting kit for the Vectra is even rarer than the Signum as the base is different.

    Your right that people do not remove the fitting kit as well including the little bolt type things that the unit fits into (you would need to get these /machined if someone will lend you one to copy).

    Give in now before you waste a lot of money and still don't get it fitted

    Your correct about the wiring but the base plate is very complex and you will not get one made without having an original to hand to copy. Even then it would be a huge task and cost a great deal of money

    This seems like a great idea, although not sure how much the base would cost to make.

    Exploded digram of the Travel Assistant


    Seems you mean part 19 in the diagram;

    19 Bracket, Tunnel, Console, Travel Assistant, Front P/N 13112958
    Do you need part 15 as well as the signum one has different hooks at the back into the seat, this is just what I have read.

    Someone has posted up the part numbers needed several times before as they where available seperately but no longer I am afraid
