    I'd guess its the loom for the heated seats. To get em up n running youd need to source some heated seats or heated elements etc... Most if not all astras have the looms in place like shown in the pic

    Being as the plug is yellow I would say they are for seat airbags.

    Normaly all airbag plugs are yellow

    Heated seat loom is inside the large black connector you can just see in the pic, that's the wiring plug for the seats side airbags, the black block has a clip on the side of it to keep it out of the way.

    found another plug when fitting my bonnet lifters, underneath the coolant tank.

    think its for a bonnet sensor...
