Rear tail is fixed to the car by three 10mm nuts inside the access doors on either side of the boot/trunk. (they are the three closest to the tail - be aware there is another 10mm nut you may undo which is nearer the side of the car in the same location - this is part of the rear bumper fitment.To change bulbs however, it is just a case of removing these access panels (they pull out) and unplugging the bulb fitting (twist and pull) from the tail light itself. The bulb can then be changed and the fitting re-fitted.
Hi there: 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.
If you have the standard factory 15 inch (diameter) x 6.0 inch (wide) wheels then the tires fitted were size: 205/70R15 (205 is the tyre width in mm and the 15 denotes the tyre bead diameter in inches for fitting to 15 inch wheels. The R denotes the speed rating of the tire).
The tires currently fitted to the car have the size moulded into the sidewall of the tire.
However I do not know if aftermarket wheels have been put on the car and if so a different size tire from the standard factory fitment may have been fitted to the wheels.
Installation of a front bumper can be
complicated. These helpful instructions may help a person with this
task. If you choose to install a bumper yourself, please be cautioned
that professional installation is always recommended. Please confirm
before you start that your safety equipment has been applied to you,
your car and your new bumper. These 10 easy steps can make a difficult
install relatively easy.
The following steps are detailed instructions that you can follow. It
is very important that you make sure to read each step carefully and
1. Look closely at the new bumper and your car for screws, bolts and
clips. Remove these pieces from your existing front bumper and place
them in a safe area. Follow this by the full removal of the cars current
2. Next, test the fit of the new front bumper. Make sure that nothing
hinders with the placement and fit on the car.
3. If the fitment is correct the installation process may move
4. If the fitment is incorrect then the removal or repositioning of
certain components, such as reinforcement bars may be required. This is
because every car is different. If this is the case remove the element
and test fit the front bumper again. This should be done with caution
and is done at the installers own risk.
5. Most of the time the new aftermarket bumper is placed the exact
way the factory piece was. The most important key to great fitment in
installation is the drilling procedure. The holes should be drilled in
the places that will give the piece a great fit. Usually, these holes
will be drilled in the same place as the factory bumper. At this point
only mocking is required.
6. When the bumper is in place, shaving or filing maybe required.
Many parts will require this because certain areas are made with more
material to lower the risk of damage. Also, if a car has been in an
accident or previously modified, this may cause additional sanding,
cutting or filing.
7. Now that the front fits well, be very precise and drill the holes.
8. Prepping for paint is what needs to be done after the holes have
been drilled. Depending on what material the front bumper is made of
will determine the steps for prepping.
9. After the piece has been painted, clear coating may be
10. Make sure there are not any leftover parts and that everything is
secure. After this is done, your front bumper installation
process is complete.
whats going on here is you have a misfire. the reason it runs smoother at highway speeds is the faulty cylinder is getting dragged alot easier. it is flashing all the time due to a hard code. i would check the spark plugs first and see if the electrodes have dropped. if it is anything else, are you not still under warranty? if it turns out to be a spark plug, replace with whatever chrysler recomends. the plugs should be either nippondenso or ngk. happy holidays.
Firstly establish if your c/locking is factory fitted or after market. If factory fitted check the fuse box for any blown fuses. If after market then their is a fused +12v line running to a normally black unit which controls the C/Locking, check that. If no luck with that take it to a fitment center who can diagnose that within 5 minutes
There are several makers of aftermarket 'universal' cats that start at around $60-70 US.
The disadvantage is the 'universal' part; they usually universally don't fit and required adaptors.
Since they all work the same way, I wouldn't be concerned about function.
About any 'chain' auto parts store should be able to cross your Celica to the closest one available.
Autozone, Advanced Auto and NAPA all have online websites and I would try there first.
