    as said above, prob just a bulb. shine a torch on display when ignition on and u should see the mileage. a good site for tech on the astra/zaff turbos is www.zlet.co.uk register there m8, very useful

    It's a doddle of a job to do, but difficult and long winded to describe, in words - get a haynes manual and it'll hold you hand while you do it.

    Angry annoyed again!!!!

    All i can say is that the dealers are robbing ba*****s hour and a half my arse. I just taken out and refitted the clocks in 10 mins. (thanks to dannysport) why do they insist that everythig is harder than it is!! And they are ment to be trained vauxhall mechanics!! 88.00 + the bulb for this repair. They make me sick!!!!
