    Anyone on here ever changed a Vectra C thermostat? Its on a Z18XE engine, 2003 Vectra 1.8 petrol.

    I've ordered one from Vauxhall and based on what it looks like and whats under the bonnet, it looks pretty straightforward (apart from the OEM hose clips!). Just wondered if anyone has already done one before, any advice would be gratefully received!

    Thanks (y)
