    Almost every Vectra C rear ashtray I've seen has a broken catch, including the one in my Elegance. They flop open and won't stay closed. I've stuck an air freshener sachet in it so it's doing something useful, but to be honest, you're better off without it. Check on the back and you'll probably find the snapped or missing part of the catch mechanism...

    I've already looked at threads on here and I can't find one that says about how to put it together and I checked to see if that mechanism has broke and looks fine I don't see any signs of anything being broke or missing

    When I got my vec the rear ash tray was jammed closed so I just pulled it open with a bit of force and it popped out in my hand, thinking I had broken it I tried to push it back in and it just clipped into place and has been working fine since..

    Mine works ok.

    However, when I bought the car it was flopped open. I just looked at how the mechanism worked and aligned everything up correctly and it's been fine ever since.
