    Default vec c grab handles

    Probably going to sound odd. Whats behind the roof lining behind the rear grab handles, is there much room just under. Thinking about retrofitting vec b rear handle light lenses .

    Do all Vectra's not have curtain airbags?

    Vehicle : Opel Vectra GTS

    Trim : Elegance

    Engine : 2.2 DTi 16V

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 75 000

    Default

    Yes.

    Want pictures ? My roof is currently down for fabric re-glueing...

    The handles are screwed into a metal plate covering the airbag there. The whole curtain airbag is also covered with a plastic bezel, opened on its bottom side so it forces the aibag to deploy in the choosen direction.

    Those lighted handles are a good idea, but you'll be able to fit them only if they are flat on the back, as the metal plate is plain from the top of the handle to the very bottom of the roof.

    You'll also be annoyed when wiring them, unless you pinch the wires between the handle housing and the plate. But what about the angle they will take where they will be entering the housing ?
