There are some good and some bad options out there for the DRL bulbs
i will cover the best options here.


...The Standard DRL bulbs....

As you will all know are yellow and Dull
and not really up to the job of being a DRL
what more can i say apart from they fit good and that is about it.
W21/5W (580).

[Image: NN001_zpse40abe14.jpg]

[Image: 20130928_121431_zps8c4610b8.jpg]

....PROLARG/MTEC......

The first white looking bulb and cheapest option here
are the cheap Prolarg or MTEC DRL bulbs you find on ebay etc
they go by many names but all are around the £7.99 to £12.00 range.

[Image: mraNIbP_nxFoh5-jlmmBuXQ_zps2ffc8eb5.jpg]

[Image: mF8Aavd1qBfQSvFvrZCl3tA_zps45b6799d.jpg]

[Image: wrapdrl008_zps7d33bb7b.jpg]

These are the cheapest option out there
and you do get a nice white light that are also error free
but the down side is they don't fit well at all
and they have been know to fall out of the DRL holder and in to headlight
and it is a bumper off and headlight out job to get the bulb back out
so if you do go for this option be warned
You get what you pay for.

....PIAA DRL....

By far the best option here is the PIAA DRL BULBS
There are two types the standard Blue PIAA DRL,S.
 
[Image: _103_zps1661cd66.jpg]

[Image: IMG_0671_zps596bd4ad.jpg]

And then the more expensive mirror PIAA DRL,S.

[Image: mfCoLMrokZ2wIp1K8QH9-1A_zpsbac89ad7.jpg]

[Image: bbb004_zpsc4375a22.jpg]

[Image: NEWLEDD011_zpsea335c09.jpg]

the PIAA are a bit brighter than the cheep Prolarg DRL,s
and have a bit more wattage but this has no ill effects at all (580) T20 27/8W.
and they are more expensive starting at around £20 for the standard Blue PIAA DRL,s
and around £30 for the mirror PIAA DRL.s they also are error free.

The only real difference is that the mirror PIAA DRL bulb does not look as blue in the headlight
when you look at it as it has a mirrored finish so the blue bulb does not stand out as much.  
The fit of the PIAA is perfect and they hold in the DRL holder as well as the standard bulb  
and they will not fall out of the holder like the cheaper eBay DRL,S tend to do
They are well worth the extra money for this reason.

....LED DRL,s...

If you have an Astra GTC or VXR then you have the option of the LED DRLS
and they will be error free as the DRL on the GTC and VXR are not on the bulb check
so just put the LED in the holder and job done.
 
But they only work with out errors in the GTC and VXR.

The Astra J 5 door will get error codes from the LED DRL,S unless load resisters are added to cancel the errors
check the how to section for further info on this under Astra j LED DRL.

[Image: discus135_zps8cb2b13f.jpg]

[Image: hids002_zps1bd7cd1a.jpg]

They are by far the brightest option here brighter than the PIAA
they also fit very well in the bulb holder  
and go for around £20 to £30 for a good set
but you must find a set that will dim down and not all LED bulbs will do this you need a W21/5W 5050 7443 LED
i recommend the LED DRL,s from HIDS DIRECT
for both the Astra GTC and VXR and the Astra j as they will Dim down for side light mode
and they are very very white with a slight tint of blue.    

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.

.........FACTORY..LED...........

Then there is the factory LED DRL option
they come with AFL and LED DRL halogen headlights
if you go down this wrought then the LED DRL halogens headlights are needed
but you must also fit the factory LED ballasts to cancel errors
also if these are not fitted there is a real risk of fire
but as yet we dont have a how to on this and this will also be the most expensive option here

............................................................      

All the above options are much brighter and whiter than the standard yellow factory DRL,S
and i prefer the LED DRL,s myself but the PIAA are also very good.
 
if you have any info or need any help with fitting DRL,S or any other bulb
then check the lighting how to section out for more info etc.

  Howto:- Fit Vauxhall Mud flaps
Posted by: Rusty2009 - 22:nd-Feb-2014, 13:00:16 - Forum: Retrofit How-to's - Replies (9)

[Image: vx.o.c.jpeg]

Howto:- Fit Vauxhall Mud flaps.

I'm starting at the rear.
So start by taking the wheel off the car.

[Image: 0.JPG]

Give the wheel liner and wheel arch a good clean (I then used panel wipe in the outer paint).
Then remove the torx screws outlined

[Image: 1.JPG]

using the new screws for them pack fit the top and bottom screw, then with the 3rd screw use it to mark where you need to drill.

[Image: 2.JPG]

Then remove the mud flap and using a 4mm drill bit drill on your mark (if you have done it right you will go through the centre of the mounting lug)

[Image: 3.JPG]

you should have the lug behind if not put the one from the kit on.

[Image: 4.JPG]

Remove the tape

[Image: 5.JPG]

fit the mud flap with the 3 screws

[Image: 6.JPG]

that’s the rear fitted.

[Image: 7.JPG]

[Image: 8.JPG]

[Image: 9.JPG]

Now for the front.

Again remove wheel clean the arch etc.
You need to remove the lug outlined simply use a screwdriver or nail punch and knock the centre out

[Image: 0.JPG]

pull the lining back a bit tricky take your time.

[Image: 1.JPG]

Put the fixing lug from the kit on

[Image: 2.JPG]

put the lining back again take your time is a bit tricky.
Now put the screw from the kit in the centre hole (where you just put the lug) and fix it in place

[Image: 3.JPG]

then using a 8mm drill bit drill though the lining where outlined in above picture ^^^^^^

then remove the mud flap and remove the tape

[Image: 4.JPG]

refit the mud flap and then put the two black lugs into the top and bottom hole

[Image: 5.JPG]

[Image: 6.JPG]

that's it mud flap fitted

  How-to remove front bumper from Astra-j (MK6 5 Door Facelift)
Posted by: Rusty2009 - 22:nd-Feb-2014, 12:24:38 - Forum: Exterior How-to's - Replies (31)

[Image: vx.o.c.jpeg]

How-to remove front bumper from Astra-j (MK6 5 Door Facelift)


Tools needed 
*Trim tools
*Torx 10 bit
*Socket Set

The first thing you need to do is remove 3 torx 10 screws on each side of the wheel arch.

[Image: 1.JPG]

Then there is small bolt where the bumper meets the wing underneath.

[Image: 2.JPG]

Next you need to undo the 6 torx 10 screws at the top.

[Image: 3.JPG]

[Image: 3a.JPG]

[Image: 3b.JPG] 

Next you need to get under the car (I put mine on ramps).
You need to remove the torx 10 screw that holds the bottom of the wheel arch lining to the bumper (1 each side).

[Image: 4.JPG]

Next job is undo all the lugs sorry I couldn't get a pic showing all of them there is 4 or 6 (easy to work out which ones to undo)

[Image: 5.JPG]

Then you need loosen the mounting bolt, (you don't need the spanner the nut is welded on).

[Image: 6.JPG]

Then the bumper is ready to be removed, you need to start drivers side and start where the bumper meets the wing and pull it out (there are lugs here so be careful and use a trim removal tool if needed).

[Image: 7.JPG]

Then move round to passenger side & repeat, you can then start to pull the bumper away from the car and on the passenger side there is a connection that will need to be unclipped before you can fully remove the bumper.

  POWER FOLD MIRRORS retro fit
Posted by: tucpal - 22:nd-Feb-2014, 02:56:32 - Forum: Retrofit How-to's - Replies (119)

[Image: vx.o.c.jpeg]

This is Guide is for How Ho fit Power Folding Mirrors for the Astra j and GTC.

STEP ONE..............

Is to make two Looms for the Driver Side and the Passenger side Mirrors
The way I got the Pin’s to Add to the Connectors was to Buy a Spare Driver’s Door Loom
And Remove the Pin’s for the Connectors that you need.

I have taken Pictures of the Pin’s Needed if anyone can Identify them
Can you send me a Link so I can Add them in Here
If you can find the Correct Pins this will be Easier in the long run
and cheaper 4 Pin’s for the Main Body Connector found at.

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. seen below.

[Image: 1.JPG]

4 Pins for Mirror Connector Grey.

[Image: 2.JPG]

2 Pins for Mirror Switch Connector Black found here.

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view..

[Image: 3.JPG]

For the Passenger side you Need Two Wires 5 amp Wire is Fine

Two Pins for the Body Loom Connector
and Label them (11 and 12)

Two pins for the Mirror Connector Grey
label them (11, BW ) & (12, PY)
make the loom about 1 meter Long.

[Image: 4.JPG]

For the Driver’s side Add two Pins for the Body Loom Connector
and label them (11 & 12).

Add Two Pins for the Mirror Connector Grey
label them (11, BW. mirror) & (12, PY. Mirror.)

Again make the Loom about a Meter Long

Splice into the Wire Marked (11,) about 6 Inches Down from the (Mirror Connector Pin)
add about 10 Inches of Wire & Add the Pin to the End & Label this Wire (11, BW. switch)

Splice into the wire marked (12) about 6 inches down from the (mirror connector pin)
& add about 10 inches of wire & add the pin to the end & label this wire (12 PY. Switch.)

So that is the Looms made up & you are Ready to fit the Looms in place

STEP TWO...............

Here is to Remove the Positive from the Battery just be Safe
So you Don't get a short when you Disconnect the main Door Connector.

[Image: 5.JPG]

STEP THREE.............

Is to Remove the Door Cards follow the How-to that can be Found Here.

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view..

[Image: 6.JPG]

[Image: 7.JPG]

STEP FOUR............

Remove the 10mm Bolt for the Door Catch to give Better Access to the main Body Connector
But be Warned do not Close the Door with this Bolt out
If the Catch Goes into the Door it is a bit of a Pig to get it out Again.

[Image: 8.JPG]

You are now able to Remove the Main Body Connector
starting at the top Remove the Rubber Boot
This will give you Access so you can now Remove the Connector
by Pulling the Pink Tab Down.

[Image: 9.JPG]

You can now Add the Pins marked 11 and 12 on the Loom
(11 Goes too Position 11)
(12 goes too position 12 )
on the Female side of the Connector
Pushing the Pins all the way in
For this to work you need to have the Corresponding Male Pins
on the male side of the Connector this can be Checked by Holding a Mirror
To see the Male Pins on the car Body
But everyone that has Done this has had them in Place so this Should not be an Issue
If they are not there then you cannot do this.

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.

[Image: 11.JPG]

Make a small Hole in the Rubber Boot
Thread the other side of the Cable Through the Rubber Boot
Remove the speaker from the door
so you can Gain better Access To the inside
And Pull the Cable in to the Door.

[Image: 12.JPG]

Pull the Cable up Inside the Door
out through the Black Grommet for the Mirror Connector.

[Image: 13.JPG]

Make sure you have Not Obstructed the Window Operation
and have the Cable out of the way of the Window Runners.

Now take the Mirror Connector (grey) & Pull back the Grey Tab so you can add the 2 Pins needed.

[Image: 14.JPG]

The Connector on the Right is what it will Look like when you have the Pins fitted the Connector
on the Left shows were to Add the pin’s

add Pin (11, BW. mirror) to Position marked (BW on the mirror connector grey)
And add (12, PY. mirror) to position marked (PY on the mirror connector grey).

[Image: 15.JPG]

Now Take the Last Two Pins from the Loom and get the (Mirror Switch Connector, black)
The Connector on the Right is what it will look like when the Pins are in & the Connector on the Left is were to add the Pin’s
Marked (BW. and, PY)

Add pin (11. BW, switch) to position (BW. on the switch connector, black)
Add the pin (12. PY, switch) to position (PY. on the switch connector, black)

That's the Driver’s side all Wired up
So now it is Ttime to fit the Power Fold Mirror.

[Image: 16.JPG]

Remove Two 10mm Bolts from the inside of the Door
It is best to get Someone to Hold the Mirror
Until you have Removed to Connector
Just so the Mirror Does not Fall out.

[Image: 17.JPG]

Push the Rubber Grommet on the inside of the Door in too the Door
& Gently Pull the Cable up through the Hole on the Outside of the Door
The mirror is out & off the car R
Refit the Mirror by Pushing the Cable in the Hole First
Pull it Back into Door & Refit the Grommet
You can now Refit all the Connectors & put Everything Back in Place
fit the new Power Fold Switch to the Door Card
You now have a Working Driver side Power Fold Mirror.

[Image: 18.JPG]

[Image: 19.JPG]

STEP FIVE........

Now for the Passenger side
Remove the Door Card etc
Get the Loom you made for the Passenger side.  

[Image: 20.JPG]

Add the Pin marked (11. to position, 11.) on the (Main Door body Connector)
& the Pin Marked (12. to the position, 12.) on the (Door body Connector.)

[Image: 21.JPG]

The Connector on the Left is were to Add the Pins from the Loom
The Connector on the Right is what it will Look like when they have been Added

Add pin (12) to the Position marked (PY) on the (Mirror connector, grey)
Add pin (11) to position marked (BW) on the (mirror connector, grey).

[Image: 22.JPG]

That's it Resemble Everything & You now have Power Fold Mirrors
There is no Programming Needed this is Plug and Play
So you only Need to Make the Two Looms
And get the Power Fold Switch and the Mirrors for this to Work.

  AUTO DIM ANTI DAZZLE REAR VIEW MIRROR retro fit
Posted by: tucpal - 22:nd-Feb-2014, 00:38:51 - Forum: Retrofit How-to's - Replies (72)

[Image: vx.o.c.jpeg]

HOW TO FIT AN ANTI DAZZLE REAR VIEW MIRROR.

You will Have to find a Second Hand Auto Dim Mirror on eBay
If you can get the Small Loom that Goes too the Mirror
and the Console in the Headliner with it Also as it is needed.
 
If not go to your Local Dealer and Order one as you do Need it
you wont Need the Surround as this Can not be Fitted to the Glass
Unless you Replace the Front Windscreen.  

[Image: 1.JPG]

Remove the Console from the Headliner
There are Three Panels to Take off
Then pull the Light Unit out.

[Image: 2.JPG]

[Image: 3.JPG]

You will Then see a Connector Attached to the Roof
This is the One you will Need.

[Image: 4.JPG]

Connect the new Loom to this Connector
Pull the Other end of the Loom
Through the Front of the Headliner Toward the Mirror
The Picture of the Loom Below is the One you Need
It will Have Three other Connectors on it
For the Rain and Light Sensors
That go to the Mirror Surround
As these were Not Needed i Cut them off
but you Don't have too if you Don't want to.

[Image: 5.JPG]

[Image: 6.JPG]

[Image: 7.JPG]

Remove the Plastic Cap that Covers the Mirror Screw
that hold the Mirror onto the Windscreen
Take the Screw out and Remove the Old Mirror
A Toque (T20) is Needed.

[Image: 8.JPG]

[Image: 9.JPG]

Then Refit the New Auto Dim Mirror
And Plug the Connector in Place.

[Image: 10.JPG]

You now have a Working Auto Dim Anti Dazzle rear view Mirror
so when a car Drives behind you at Night the Mirror will Darken
so you don't get Dazzled by there Bright Headlights.

This worked Plug and Play on MY11 Spec car
but Remember it only Works in the Dark
when the Sensor Activates and Turns the Mirror on.
i Believe Fuse (15) in the Rear Fuse Box
Supply's the Power for the Mirror to Work
The Three Wires are
(Positive), (Ground), (Reverse Light Positive).
If it wont Work just Ask
I know off Another way to Wire it.  

[Image: 11.JPG]

You can Add a sun Strip to the Front Windscreen
to Hide the Small Wire that will be on Show.

[Image: 12.JPG]

AS WITH ALL ELECTRICAL HOW TOO,S.
you do this at your own risk if you follow the how to correctly
there should be no problems thank you.

But it is Expensive for what it is
Programming and VCI Codes will also be Needed.

Here is the USB and AUX Sockets on the Storage Tray

The USB module is located just to the right and above the accelerator pedal
And is held in place by a bracket and one screw.

For this Option The USB Retro fit
I think Money would be Better Spent on an After Market Head Unit,
with USB and Bluetooth, SAT NAV, ETC Combined.
