    Default Rear side window sun blinds.

    Hi,

    Are there any decent sun blinds for the rear side windows of the Vectra hatch? The universal ones I had in my last car don't fit due to the lines if the top of the window.

    Thanks

    There was a factory fit option (got it on my SRi) but apparently it could only be done at the factory as it required different doors (according to the dealer I got my car from). They are very nice it has to be said, roll away automatically into the door panels. You may be able to retro fit them, not sure if the dealer was talking rubbish or not about the doors being different.

    That's a lot more realistic, to be honest, I thought the dealer was talking crap at the time, but never bothered checking how they're actually fitted.

    Just nipped out and took a couple of pics of the factory fit blinds so you can get a better idea just how much better they are than aftermarket ones. Well worth the money if you can retro fit them.

    As others have posted this can be done on any Signum or Vectra C. I did this upgrade on my old Vec C hatchback a couple of years back.

    Downside is the blinds are about £80 each and it takes a few hours a door to fit them. The tricky bit is the plastic support at the top of the door card has to be cut without damaging the lugs the blind bolts to.

    That said might get round to this myself on my Signum. Ignoring the cost its a good upgrade.

    As dieselvec said, it's doable and has been done - just a bit pricey all in.

    If you don't fancy the cost/hassle of a retro fit then there are OE Sunshades that Bainie came across a while back that a few guys have used.
