    Default Vectra c bonnet gas strut

    Just noticed a seller on eBay selling a gas strut for the bonnet on the Vectra c. Do all Vectra c's come with this? I haven't got one fitted to my Vectra and was wondering if its supposed to or can they be retro fitted. Can any body give me any info regarding this. Thanks in advance

    No facelifts don't have them due to the type of metal of the bonnet I believe it can bend and fold if fitted. Somebody did however fit them onto a facelift on here with no issues bit Its a risk really.

    I'm one of them, had no issues. No chance it's going to fold unless maybe it was pulled down from the opposite side, but why would anyone do that??

    I'll get a piccie when I go out to work ;-)

    It's a possibility it could happen I used to do it. There's no need for a dig. I won't be fitting one to mine. Simple.
