    Default Newbie in Crewe

    Ive had use of a 07 plate Vectra cdti 120bhp for the last 4 years, I've finally decided to purchase my own.
    Bought it cheap with a few know issues and finding more as I go along.
    Over the last 4 years I've built up quite abit of knowledge on faults with these.
    My newley purchased 07 plate Vectra cdti 120bhp sri has faults I've dealt with before and new faults to me.

    Been on here a while but its time I introduced myself, also a cry for help


    Faults atm

    Blowers not working on number 4 setting?

    AC not working?

    Gearknob is quick release ( its worn so will be looking for a new one and then gluing it on )

    Car will lock/unlock with remote aslong as I dont put deadlocks on? ( pressuming this is fob battery )?

    Cracking front doors ( gonna spin the check arm straps round, done this on 2 vectras lol )

    Its due a service plus cambelt/ tensioners etc

    Got some paintwork to sort, n/s/r 1/4 plus rear bumper.


    Cars done 110K, has recentley had new clutch and dmf, new egr valve, new alternator, front shocks and bottom arms.
    Seems to drive/ pull well enough compaired to another 120bhp vectra I've driven.
    Anyone help???

    Couple of pics for now.




    Need to repair the 1/4 and find a cheap replacement rear bumper.



    Got a few panel beats needed, but it's all stuff I can do or know people I work with can do.

    Wanna get the mechanical side spot on if possible first.
    Next week will see it have a full Bufftie treatment and I'll then decide what else requires paint.
    Plans once it's minted up will be a remap, slight drop, maybe bigger oe wheels spaced alittle flusher to the arches.
    Really wanna useable daily, but I'm alittle picky/ obsessed with attention to detail.

    Good job I work on Bentleys I suppose.

    My pride and joy, ground built up mk2 ford Orion 2 litre zetec turbo.



    Taken 4 years to restore/ build up. It's been out the last 2 years for the show seasons.
    Still perfecting the spec, more to come from it yet but 300bhp at the front wheels is lively in a old car. 22 years old now!!!

    My current daily, salvage damage repaired focus estate with 22k on the clock.



    Misses's daily.



    Hopefully the focus once back to standard will sell for decent money and I'll be able to get the vectra upto standard.
