    Changing number plates on an Astra

    Okay, here's a strange one for you. I don't actually own an Astra, but I'm an aspiring writer currently writing a scene that involves changing the number plates on an Astra. Can anyone tell me what tool is required? Is it just a Phillips screwdriver job?

    :S sounds abit weird but im sure it depends what model, i think its a 10 spanner. use a adjustable to be sure and dont hold me too it. I know its a bolt on my mk4. not sure about mk1 if thats what your after.
