    Welcome to the forum - I think there is a special tool for doing most jobs on Vectra's but you don't need any to change the filter, the large ring on top of the filter housing has to be unscrewed and one of them rubber strap wrenches can be useful for that. The fuel pipe clips have to be released and this can be done using two small screwdrivers to push the clips in and release the pipe. Be careful with the housing as it is quite fragile and can be easily damaged especially the fuel pipe connectors and the whole housing is made of a brittle plastic that won't take too much hammer. This should help http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...34#post1301434

    I used a towel and strength to unscrew and screw back the same strength of tightness, grab all fuel in there into a clean bowl or some sort. So u can safety throw away the fuel in there effectually keeping new filter clean as possible with fresh fuel!

    Welcome to the good helpful forum! :-)

    I used a cheap oil filter removal tool, the chain type one, about £5 from halfords or any auto parts shop. I carefully wedged the filter in the corner of a step (did not have a vice then) with one end projecting over the step so I can use the oil filter tool to undo it. a bit tight but it came off after a bit of swearing and blinding. But easier to use a vice and oil filter tool.
