Wanted Vectra B Rear Suspension Strut

#1
Hey everybody, I'm looking for the rear suspension strut. Passenger side vectra b.

If anyone knows, Does the vec c use the same setup or maybe a signum.

Phoned a few breakers yards, No vec b in currently.

If anyone has 1 for sale or knows of an alternative model with the same setup. Would be helpful.

Personally I wouldn't bother too much looking for a secondhand one as they stopped making the Vectra B in 2001, although there may be some 2002 registered ones around, so they're going to be 18 yrs old.

You can get part # 1, 90496689 - Shock shock absorber carrier (with the plate and screw) from AutoVaux/GenuinePartSearch for £27.78

The Vectra C is a different setup.

Hope that helps. :)

Thanks for the help. I went on facebook as well with my request, last night, and carl came to the rescue. He provided a link for neobros.

This website isn't as active as it used to be so was thinking no one will be on for days. Ordered it up late last night as well. So i should get it tomorrow. which i think will be pretty fast postage

There will be someone in future looking for the same part probably, So your link and mine will be helpful. When the time comes.

It's true there aren't many left cause of age. another couple of months and mine is 19 years old. Still got a fairly solid body on it though. It's lasted longer than any car iv'e had before.

With the rear crossmember panel behind the bumper being the first bit of welding needing done, for the mot in the 10 years iv'e had the car.

Which i think is good testament to how solid the body is .

You'll be lucky to get one in a scrapyard nowadays. Must have phoned a good half dozen yesterday.
Then i looked on ebay. nothing was showing up in the search.

This cars a classic just about.

IDI AMIN,

Glad you got it sorted with Carl's help. (y)

I've have the same model as you (Vectra B SRi 150 - March 2001) and have owned it since October 2001. As you say the body's seem to be reasonably good and like your's at over 18 yrs old (with 118.000 miles) is heading towards a 'classic'

If you need help locating any parts I'm always happy to assist. I'm usually on this forum most days but I haven't joined the 'Z22SE' Facebook group yet. You could always PM me via the forum as that also goes to the member's email address too.

Hope your Veccy stays healthy for a few more years!

Kevin. :)
