    Default Minor issues with my new Vectra GSI

    Hi all, just got my vectra 3.6 gsi. Noticed a small problem with this window and mirror switches. With the windows the passenger and rear switches seem to only work intermittently, although if you put pressure on them in a certain way, i.e. near the sides they do work. I was thinking that maybe the contacts are maybe out of alignment or corroded in some way? Anyone had any issues like this?

    Same with the mirror switches really, if i press the switch to move the mirror out it sometimes goes down, etc. Have to mess about with finger placements until it starts to move in the right direction.

    Also, the car didn't come with a SIM card for the onboard phone system. Can i just pick up one from vauxhall if the previous owner can't find it?

    Not big problems i know but i'd like to get everything near enough perfect to begin with.

    PS still cant wipe the smile from my face even with 24 mpg!!

    Had a similar problem with my passenger side window switch.See my thread under Bodywork and Interior section for a full rundown of what I did.Problem hasn't reoccurred since I stripped down the switch.Good luck!

    yep, clean the contacts up inside the switch and it should start working fine again....

    Contacts clean and working perfect apart from driver switch panel (looks a bit fiddly but i'll give it a go later). Just need to see about sim card now.

    Thanks for help
