Permanent Fix 4x4 system, turbo Vectra 4x4
« on: May 10, 2014, 14:07:07 PM »
Hi guys!:) I'm new here! Very nice forum!!

I was wondering. I have a Vectra 4x4 turbo with a bad turbo and 4x4 is permanent. Don't know why.

But, where can I buy a new or used turbo?

And!

I read there is a way of permanently fixing the 4x4 on the Vectra/calibra. With a set of gears to replace the clutch. I don't mind having permanent 4x4:)

All info is highly regarded. Read a bit on cav16 but:)

Thanks!!!

You can get the turbo reconditioned, but it's very expensive for our cars. Several hundred GBP (british pounds).

Ebay or anyone breaking a turbo car should have something.

yeh reconditioned or you can get them off ebay sometimes, I sold 1 only a few weeks ago so they are on there.

also permanent 4x4 isnt using gears, its just adding additional clutch plates so that the clutch system is permanently engaged. The benefit is obviously removing the unreliable hydraulic system, although there are bad points such as ending up with a lively rear end under breaking and cornering.
