    Default Rear Vents

    Is it possible to fit rear vents to a Veccy without. My B-i-L has a pre-facelift with rear vents, but my car doesn't - it just has a glasses holder instead.
    Especially with the summer approaching, it would be nice to get some cool air to those in the rear.

    You'd have to replace the console, but more difficult would be running the air feed pipes through as they are not present on the facelift.

    That is very surprising to hear you dont have rear vents. i thought all veccys came with these vents. Even my pre-face lift LS had them. What models dont then??? Not only are they handy for keeping rear passengers warm/cold i find them very handy for keeping the rear windows clear too. A great little extra to have on your veccy

    According to the brochure, the only ones that have it are the Design and Elite Vectra and the Signum Elite - but at least they do have them so that means it's possible to retro fit them.
    We'll see how brave I am.

    If they're still present on the facelift (certain models) then it may be possible to retro-fit them.

    You'd need to see what parts aren't there (centre console removal is the only way to tell). I doubt if it would have the ducting there, so you'd need to see if that was able to be added, and of course you'd need a different end section of the rear console.

    Just needs somebody without the vents to take their rear console out to see if the ducting is there or not. Having done thins more than once, I can help with any questions.

    Just so you know what to expect, this is what you'd need to remove to fit the ducting if it was possible to do it.....



    Not the stereo and glove box, but the centre console right up to the gear stick (and the gear stick surround).

    I have them in my SRi, dropped for those built after Nov 05 (mine Oct 05). I would imagine that it can be retro fit, but if the ductings not there I dont know how far under the dash (looking at Duncans scary piccie) you would have to go and would need replacing under the dash, like adding a T-piece somewhere.

    My old 52 plate LS had them, my 07 Exclusiv doesn't. And its not going to get them if I have to take half the car apart to install them! Scary picture - very brave man!

    I know if did that I'd just have finished putting it all back then discover some leftover parts I'd missed......
