Question about Vauxhall Astra
My headlight is working but is not on fully I think it must be the side light that is on. What bulb do I need to get the headlight working again.
I suggest go to the Vauxhall website, sign up for "My Vauxhall" (it's free) and you can then download a manual in pdf format. The earliest manual for an Astra is 2002, but the headlight bulb changing instructions will be the same, and should be on pages 212 onward.
If its the dipped headlight bulb then the bulb itself (H7 fitment) sits inside a brown L shaped bulb holder that twist fits into the lens. Just twist it anti clockwise and remove - disconnect the multi-plug connector from the bottom of the brown bulb holder first tho.
If however its the main beam bulb (HB3 fitment) then the bulb holder is actually part of the bulb and comes as 1 complete unit.
I trust from your description that its the dipped bulb thats gone. Once its light, have a look and see what u think
It really is straight forward and you shouldnt have any issues. If you manage it - then note how the bulb fits into the bulb holder and fit the new bulb in its place - dont touch the glass though so use the base to push it into position... refit, twist into position making sure the 3 tabs around the edge of the bulb holder are correctly seated and fit the electrical connection in place.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

chapmnfarm: your head lights use a "2" fuse system.
one for the left and one for the right.
The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood on the passenger's side. It is a black box roughly 8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide. When you remove the cover, you will see fuses and relays. What you are looking for is the section in the box which has a cluster of 7 fuses. 3 in one row and 4 in the other. On the outer parameter are two relays. The fuses you are interested in are located in the row of 4 fuses, with the two closest to the "L" shaped part of the box. Both of those should be 15 amp fuses.
The fuse below those should be a 20 amp which is the lighting switch and the one below it is a 15 amp which is for the interior lights and the clock.
Check your harness grounds in the engine compartment near the area you have the problem. There are ground wires which come out of the harness on both sides of the core support. The wires are black in color and have "EYES" crimped onto the ends of the wires. Both of them will probably be located about 4-6 inches below the upper tie bar on each side of the radiator. Odds are that the eyes will be large enough to pass a 6mm bolt through.
I hope what I have given you will resolve your problem. Lem me know,,good luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
