    Well thanks to this forum again ive found the problem with my cruise control, broken clutch return spring, found a bit of spring hanging off the clutch pedal. Rang vauxhall and picking up a modification spring for £8.60 this afternoon. Happy days.

    I've just picked mine up today.

    I'm having problems fitting it.

    I've been rolling around in the footwell, and I can see where I think it's supposed to go.

    In the pack, you get the spring, and a little yellow clip.

    Behind the clutch, a bit higher up, then is a metal bar, with a hole in it, where the yellow clip fits perfectly.

    I've then tried compressing the spring, and putting on end in the yellow clip, and the other end at back of the clutch pedal, but even with the spring fully compressed, it's too long to fit between the gap.

    Am I putting it in the right place?

    Hi mate , take a look at this thread and the photos, it might help you, did mine last year and fitted ok, had to pull up on the clutch pedal a bit to help get it in if I remember correctly http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread...=clutch+spring

    Hi danlat1415. Just fitted my clutch return spring this morning. If you pull the clutch pedal up the bottom end of the spring will fit in. There is a notch on the back of the clutch pedal. Cruise control here i come.

    I managed to get mine fitted last night, after a few scratches, and getting covered in the spring grease, after it came apart a few times.

    Wonder if my CC work now... I also took the indicator stalk off, and cleaned the contacts.


    Mine has never worked, so will be a bonus.
