    Finally got round to fitting earlier this evening to find that it in fact doesn't fit my car. It has a ball type joint on the end, where as the existing one has a pivot style join.

    Any gen on whether the section at the bottom where the end of the lever sits could be swapped for the ball joint cup style from a later astra ?

    If anyone knows what i'm on about that is ?
