    Default Tree 1 - 0 Vectra, best place for replacement parts.

    Hi Folks, 1st time poster here,

    I recently had a small argument with a tree and the right rear indicator/brake light glass unit came off a bit worse for wear. This is the first bump I've had in a car and so I'm unsure of the best way to go about getting replacement parts. I'm sure a replacement of the rear light unit is something I can do (I've had the broken one out and it seems simple enough to replace) but I don't know the best place to go for replacement parts. Do I need to go to a dealer or will ebay be the best place. I have a 2004 Vectra Estate. Any advice would be welcome.

    Many thanks in advance

    Paul

    Welcome to the forum.

    Ebay or a breaker's yard might be your best bet, but you could also try:

    http://www.gsfcarparts.com/

    http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/store/home.php

    http://www.autovaux.co.uk/


    If you go to a dealer, try ringing round a few local ones - there's sometimes a little variation in price.

    When something similar happened to my astra I went to the dealer. I was supprised at how inexpesive the rear light cluster was (30 quid or there abouts).
    But if you want it cheaper a scrap yard will be your best bet.

    There are a couple on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Genuine-Vectra...d=p3286.c0.m14

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-Vectr...d=p3286.c0.m14
    to give you an idea of cost check them out but also call you dealer for a price as ebay is not always the cheap option hth ...........

    Thanks for all of your replies folks, I bought the part from a dealer in the end. There's also some slight bumper damage but I'll take photo's and post them when finances allow me to do the repair.

    Thanks again
