    confused handbrake on vectra

    Help please has anyone else had a problem with the handbrake slipping of the ratchet,i have read a few reports about this and would like everyone who has had a problem to contact me. My car rolled down the hill last tuesday after being parked for 15 mins had got back from very short journey so brakes were not hot.Have been arguing with dealer and vauxhall since then and both don't want to know.Told my insurance company and they won't repair it untill they check it out,if they find a fault i will have to claim against vauxhall on my own Would like details from anyone who has had any problem,looks like i can't win on my own. P.S can't have a courtasy car either . many thanks Milt

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune. I personally was fortunate enough to hear of this happening before & asked about it here
    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10499
    Had quite a lot of response, this may be of use to you.

    D'oh, too late.

    Default A bit late I know...

    Hey, my Vectra rolled backwards on the driveway 2 nights ago, despite being in gear with the handbrake on. At the moment the Vauxhall dealer is saying its not their fault and theres nothing wrong with it, but we're gonna argue it - the car is nearly always parked on a slope and we were just lucky that this happened when we weren't parked on a main road.
