    Vehicle : Vectra 3.0 cdti

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 3.0 cdti

    Year : 2006

    Default New owner 3.0 cdti

    Hi everyone Iíve taken ownership of a 55 plate vectra 3.0 cdti Sri manual.

    I was on the corsa c forum which was good and made a tutorial for overhauling the steering rack same member name as here.
    Iíve just gotten my 1.0 corsa on the road and the steering is much better. Now my attention is onto the vectra.

    Iam looking forward to learning about the Vectra C.

    Curently the car isnít sitting right due to having a mixture of Sri and standard height springs.

    ive ordered up the correct KYB rear springs to go on.

    Working at the rear of the car:
    unseized and removed 3 eccentric alignment bolts covered in coppaslip and refitted to take it for itís alignment as it was knocked back first time due to alignment being out and having seized adjusters.

    the banana arm outer bush is supposed to be a common failure Iam led to believe I checked mine itís old but no movement.

    1 alignment bolt was seized to the bush in straight arm so had to cut that out with angle grinder.
    so new arm with bolts ordered Febi one.

    have a diesel leak at the front That needs investigating.
    clutch slips under hard acceleration.
    timing belt probably needs done as well.not looking forward to those. If thereís any workshop manuals on here let me know
    Thanks for reading.
