    Default Vectra C Facelift Sidelight Fitting

    I've read the discussion in the How 2, theres one on there which mentions removing the bumper

    But in the how 2 discussion it was also discussed that its probably easier to remove the airbox

    But theres no how 2 for removing the airbox, and im very dubious about doing it with the VXRs airbox being so big.

    For VXR pics see here http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15060


    but im very nervous about doing both. Trouble is ive got to now, as ive got a cool blue on the right sidelight, but a nasty yellow one on the left one. No backing out now ...

    it's dead easy.. just remove the intake trunking off the airbox, pop the lid off and remove the filter.... then pull the airbox up and out.. it's dead easy to get it out...



    or you could just use a crowbar....

    ok bearing in mind your talking to a novice here. What tools am i going to need to do the job.

    Screwdrier for the jubilee clip and some brute force ? because i panicked when i saw the CDTI airbox thread and torx screws being mentioned. Dont have one of them

    As you've said, undo the jubilee clip and pull hard whilst wiggling it about. Think there are three rubber mounts, it's quite simple really (mines a 1.8 petrol).

    While you're in the engine bay, any chance of taking a picture for me?

    Apparently the VXR airbox has a hole about 5 or 6cm diameter underneath the filter to help with induction. I want to drill my own hole, but don't know yet exactly where to drill it...

    Would be appreciated

    well i did it

    easiest way to do it is to unscrew the 2 jubile clips for the airhose, leave the airbox in place and that gives you just enough room to get your hand in without scraping it.

    Parapaul, where exactly was i looking ? looked down the side of the airbox and theres no holes in it mate, this was above and below the join line in the middle. But as said, i didnt take the airbox apart, just remove the feed to it.

    I'm under the impression the extra hole is either in the floor of the airbox or low down on the front wall...

    Thanks for looking though
