    Angry Gun Metal Grey T/C Panel

    This is yet another thread regarding the above part!!

    Having contacted several Vauxhall dealers, Vauxhall Head Office (who then contacted the main warehouse), who then contacted the factory in Germany!! it appears the gun metal grey T/C panel is not at any of them!!

    There is apparently none in this country nor Germany and after trawling through the VX parts catalogue for the last few days, the guy at VX main warehouse says this part only exists for the Left Hand Drive Astra G's(.....not that it sould make a difference as its a part for the centre console) and that to get it in will take a good few MONTHS!!!! It is also a completely different part number to any of the ones that have been mentioned in all of the threads on this site!

    This is so pathetic i feel like im going mad!! Ive rang round about 5 specialist VX breakers who say they havent got this part either - im beginning to go insane!!!


    Can anyone source this part or point me in the right direction to get hold of this part??? its all fitted in my car and looks shocking as there is no panel for the switch to fit in!!!

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help!!

    Jesus mate, I feel for you on this on.

    just a wee correction there is a big diference between this panel between RHD & LHD versions - look at the ends of the panel and you'll see they are very different angles

    tell me about it mate - i cant believe how poor the VX service has been - plus they really dont seem to give a shit!! IT really is shocking!

    Ahh i didnt realise there was a difference - thanks for the info though

    Does that mean that a LHD panel wouldnt be any good anyway then even if they could get me it?

    Rang Steve - put me on hold, 2 secs later - "Hi Ollie, ive got the exact part in my hand"

    Why did i not try LMF sooner???!!!!

    So chuffed - and it came up a quid cheaper than Vauxhall as well!!

    I am forever in debt to these Guys!!

    Woohoo - should be here late this week, early next week!!

    Plus ive got the idiot 'Customer Service Manager' from Vauxhall HQ calling me tomorrow - Boy is he/she gonna have it!!!


    Its quite worrying how much excitement a small grey panel can give!!

    Crossing all of your body parts must of worked Geoff!!!!:
