    Default Service guide for 2008 1.8 Vectra

    I'm planning on servicing my 2008 1.8 Vectra tomorrow. I've searched loads of forums but cannot find a DIy/how-to. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    I have ordered fuel filter, Air filter, oil filter, oil and spark plugs. The only car I've ever serviced was my 2002 E46 320s so have no idea about spark plugs etc and don't want to break anything or cause any damage

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Spark plugs easy

    remove cover (slides to right then lifts off)
    t30 socket remove coil pack then sparks are their.

    everything else is easy enough. Be gentle with fuel filter pipes

    I looked in the how to section but didn't find anything unfortunately. If you have a link to a thread that would be a great help

    And thanks for the engine code, I'm sure that will come in handy in the future when searching for things

    This is the type of thing I mean, things that are easily broken. I am not even aware of these clips, on my 320d the fuel filter was under the passenger footwell and held in with two jubilee clips. Do vauxhall normally keep the clips you speak of in stock?
