    Smile Just got a vectra couple of questions

    Hi I have just got myself a Vectra 1.8 LS 2003 ....am pleased with it so far ...just a couple of bits to sort out....I need to get new window switches as the passenger side one doesnt work the drivers switch does but the drivers window is intermittent.....I need a parcel shelf strap and the fitting.....after the heavy rain last week the passenger footwell was swimming went back to the guy I got it from and found the vent in beside the pollen filter was blocked with leaves.... the guy had never cleaned it out in the 3 years that he had it anyway he vaxed it out for me and iI managed to get the carpets dried out....so I need to get a new pollen filter...
    I have noticed that the water temp goes up and down between 75-85 thought it would wait steady and on Sunday the spanner light popped on for about a minute no loss of power......
    where abouts is the obd port?

    The car has just done 58,000 had a new timing belt... rear anti roll bushes, new brake pads all round.....and a component went in the clutch so the guy got the whole clutch replaced....
    Is there anything else that I should check,
    Just cautious as my last car was a nightmare as it had a particulate filter..the system was faulty and the additive dumped into the cars system and knackered the whole fuel system....my hubby has now left me paranoid
    Here are a couple of pics.....






    Thanks guys am enjoying the forum...just need to wash and polish the car any recommendations on what to use....

    Hi, nice car, the window switches are very cheap and available on ebay:

    http://shop.ebay.co.uk/items/_W0QQ_d...itch&_osacat=0

    Pollen filters are also cheap, the carbon one is recommended if you want to filter out smells aswell, only a quid or two extra from http://www.autovaux.co.uk/LoadPortal...bid=5&vnum=137

    Is good you dont have to worry about the timing belt for a while, its the next big thing on my to do list!!!
