    Hi m8,

    No it doesn't fit you will need to get the for the vectra C. I tried without success and ended up paying £10 to get the right fitting.

    Again they do not fit, you need the proper tool.

    I have done mine by adding preasure with a g-clamp and winding it (carefully to avoid damaging the piston and seal) with mole-grips, but you need to take the calipher off and have at least one assitant to do this properly.

    If you push the calipher in without winding it you will break it. If you wind it and don't push, you will break it. Only use this method if you've done them before and kind of know how much to wind and push if you know what i mean!! I take no responcibilty for anything you do!!
