    Default Problem 1.8 16V 2003 = dead gearbox, temp, no steering power, windows

    Hello,
    was very satisfied opel customer, when I bought Opel Vectra made in 2003, 1.8 16V. Car had service checks exactly on time,but when I had 120 007 km, I had a first problem with my gearbox. Suddenly, clutch’s pedal felt down, car started braking and I was not able to control speed decreasing, could not change 5th gear to neutral. It happened 4 months ago on highway in 130km/h and almost killed me. Gearbox is not the cheapest spare part, I had to pay for replacing a lot of money. But for my surprise, after 200km a had the same problem. I tried to get used spare part , but I am not able to get any.. I recieved information from dealers, that it common problem on Opel Vectra C And it will be difficult to get it. My question is, how many owner is needed for OPEL to take responsibility of this SERIOUS and dangerous
    problem, what about recalling and so on...

    Another problem.. I have steering wheel with ! icon on display, and have to steering power. Liquid is ok, checked, how to find a source of problem?

    Another 1 problem with my vectra, temperature meter is showing mostly cold or 75 cels. temperature on engine, but at cold motor, heating into cab is ok.
    Liquid also ok. Is it sensor related problem? Any experience?

    And the last one... I can not control mirrors and windows from drivers' door controllers, but I am able to open trunk and lock door. Can any1 help, how to disamble door?

    Thanks a lot,

    Vehicle : Insignia CDTi SRi NAV 160

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : A20DTH

    Year : 2009

    Mileage : 88000

    Default

    Should have got the gearbox replaced under warrany or at least got money towards if from Opel.

    Second one should have had a warranty so go back to the supplier.

    Get the car Tech II'd at the dealers and they might find your fault for the steering.

    My 1.8 never warms up on hte temp gauge so thats normal.

    The door controller will prise out without removing the door panel. Check the fuses first and then the wiring between the door and body, possible corosion/breaks in cable.

    Hope that helps
