    Flange or sleeve fitting exhaust?

    Hi there,

    Without getting on my knees to look under the car, could anyone tell me what fitting exhaust my Astra Hatch has?

    Its an 02 plate 1.8 SRi. If you need any more info just ask!

    Cheers

    Probably be a flange, but you'd best check by getting on you knees and taking a look

    I believe Astra-G, particularly 1.8s could be flange or sleeve regardless of build sequence (it also depended on which plant a particular Astra was assembled in) so it's a get on knees job I'm afraid.

    My 03 Astra sxi is a sleeve fitting, yet I have a friend who has a 03 sri and his is a flange fit... seems they chop and change with models...

    Either way round, take a look yourself, and if neccessary you can buy a converter to change sleeve to flange anyway!
