    Default Travel assistant

    I should be collecting my Signum Design this Saturday (fingers crossed), it is a Design but had the Elite spec (sort of) but it doesnt have the Travel assistant, can these be bought seperately? and if so where from, also how do they fit?

    cheers in advance

    They can, but from Vx new they are several hundred quid. Best bet is to keep an eye on ebay.

    As for fitting, Brakebuster did an excellent How 2 - have a look in the How 2 section.

    What year is it BTW? If it's an 04 then the Design spec would've had the TA as standard from new.

    the only thing that differs is the base..

    when fitting a ta in a signum you will have to screw few bits onto the centre
    frame for the ta to hook into,think most ppl on the site (including me)wasnt or
    are not aware that these parts need to be fitted as it secures the back hooks of the
    ta base bracket tight,y to the centre seat frame,if anyone needs wot parts to
    use then let me know,i`ll be posting a how2 shortly on these few extra parts
    that needs to be fitted.

    He's talking rubbish I'm afraid. The TA was standard on the 03 Elite, standard on all the 04 range and an option only on all models from 05 onwards (Signums I'm talking about here). He's probably taken it out and flogged it on ebay!! lol

    They're the same size whether it's a pre-facelift or facelift Signum. The only difference you'll find with TAs is the base - there is a base that fits the Signum and a base that fits the Vectra. The actual TA on top is identical no matter if it's a Vectra or Signum, pre-facelift or facelift.

    If the one you saw on ebay came out of a Signum and it has the base as well, then grab it!!! lol If your car hasn't got the fixing points and floor socket then the fixing kit is about £30 from Vx.

    If it was standard and he's flogged it then it will have the fixings won't it?

    oooo, just noticed its a design not an elite, will this be the difference between standard fittment or not?

    Yep, it certainly would do! An easy way to see if it came with one originally! Nice lateral thinking there!
