    it MUST be green... the OLD vectra used red fluid.. ( dextron II ) whereas YOUR CAR uses LHM fluid... tell them it MUST be filled with LHM ( the same a citroen suspension fluid)...

    DEXTRON II is basically automatic gearbox fluid and has always been used in all the old power steering systems, while they were made by ZF.

    Vectra C uses mainly TRW steering pumps and racks, and the HAVE to be filled with LHM fluid, which is a green mineral oil..
