    A 2002 is fly by wire so it should be convertable.

    Take a look to see if you can see the connector under the steering column shroud and the cable for the clutch switch.

    I added it to my 2.0 DTi and I almost always drive everywhere with it on, unless the traffic is bad.

    on the DTi you only need the stalk switch, as they have the clutch one already (I think it's used as part of the boost control or so I'm told)

    that was 38quid from the dealers, the car was 6 weeks old at the time I fitted it so I wanted to keep the as new look for the switchgear. You could easy get one from the scrappys.

    I think the clutch switch is like 7/8 quid something like that.

    Then I needed to get it enabled with Tech 2, A very kind member "Ian T" did this for me for a small quantity of beer vouchers.

    If you have to get the dealers to do this bit (you may not need it as some have it enabled already) then it'll be whatever they charge for tech2 (1/2 hour labour normaly)

    What's the chance of this been possible on a 2001 (Y) 1.7 Astra Envoy DTI?

    Is there anything I should look for to confirm hat it can be done?

    Anybody in the Rotherham, Sheffield area that could do this for me. (Don't mind travelling as long as you are not near John O'Groats or Lands End )


    TIA
