    Vectra door handles on a mk3 phase 1- HELP

    At the moment ive the cav, early astra type on the car. I wanted to get vectra door handles but ive been told that the locks are a fraction different & its best to get a vectra lock and key so its not advisable. Can anyone shed some light on this for me please and is there much difference in them?

    The most easy thing you can do is try to get backdoorhandles from a 5 door astra. They fit perfectly! I have them in my frontdoors and i'm very happy with them. The vectra handles are a bit different in the place where the key cylinder is but you can adapt that to make them fit..

    What you need to do is take out the brass lock sliders from your lock and put them into the Vectra lock.

    When you take your sliders out lay them in a way you wont forget so they stay in the same order when you put them into the vecta lock
