    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 000

    Default A quiet Vectra B

    Larisa,s Vectra B has been knocking and clonking when driven over a bump, well I have just changed the front drop link arms on the front, to say they were worn out would be an understatment. I changed the rear "rose" joints a week or two ago, they were a real pig to get out, even with the tooling I made to extract them, any one who has changed them will know what I mean, now the car is nice and quiet on rough ground, Now for a well earned bottle of Red wine tonight.
