The TA gets attached to the car via the bracket on the transmission tunnel at the front.
But how does the rear of the TA get attached in an Omega?

Basically it just hooks under the back rest. the clamp at the front does most of the securing. :y Wiring is a piece of pish (as Jim might say) live feed and earth. Me thinks the power to the rear cigarette lighter might be the best place to find a live feed as it is a fused switched live :-\.

If buying s/h TA from Ebay or such like, they were also available for the Vectra, these have a different base, which may not fit quite so snugly. Also Vectra C/ Signum beige is alot more orange than the Omega.

Base plate is just over 200 new, the actual box bit nearer 500, so 100 ish second hand is pretty good value if you want one. Mounting kit is 25-35 from VX. Be prepared to pay for postage though as they're heavy/bulky.

HTH, Al. :y

Mine it ended up in a Vectra saloon, so I followed the instructions in the kit.

The Vectrum has two studs welded to the top of the tunnel from the factory so the plate bolts down and the cover clips on. Wire runs to the fuse box/rear bcm in the boot.

The rear attachment depends whether the base is a Signum or Vectra one as they differ.

Other than that, as above really ;D

Thankfully I don't have this rear seat 'carbuncle' fitted to my cat.

Should I be strung up by the neck and balls until dead for suggesting that the Signum is a better car than the Omega? :)

Most definitely  ;D
Must add, i think it looks out of place too. Still, each to their own.

I saw the one in Jim's car and although it was fitted neatly enough it is quite an imposing piece of equipment. If you eat on the move a lot then it would be useful I suppose. As said, personal choice at the end of the day.
My A6 has an air conditioned glove box but you'd be hard pressed to get more than a couple of cans of drink and a couple of choccy bars in it.  :)

The sigmund was designed for the owner to be driven in, hence the gubbins in the back. I'm surprised more VIP's and royalty didn't opt for one, after all, anyone can have a Daimler or Maybach.

The Signum was designed as a 4 seat vehicle...... so it's reasonable that the centre of the rear (non)bench was taken up with something useful.  There is a third seatbelt and headrest, but nobody other than a smack-head would feel comfortable for any distance sat in the middle.

I really quite like the Signum, and really wish GM did something a little bit special with it.  Sadly, it was just a Vec C with a couple of nice bits added.  I dread to think what the cost of the TA would have been at a dealership when buying new...... the Signum carried a premium price as it was!

I reckon there is probably less than a dozen 2.8T V6 left alive. :) They are rare.

I like mine. :y

A random project I'd consider for a late Vectrum estate is to swap the all the seats with a set of heated leather memory ones from an early Signum.
