    The Astra H is easier than the Astra G, bumper removal isn't needed. I do these at work in about 45 minutes

    I do all the wiring behind the drivers light and bring the wires in through a air vent central but towards the drivers side

    Just remember to measure loads of times before finally drilling and be carefull to make sure the center sensors (on a 4 sensor kit) miss the number plate lights

    Fixings are usually below the lights, under the car and in the wheel arch. Like I said though you don't need to take the bumper off to fix reversing aids to a astra H

    If you remove the internal trim panel that runs the width of the boot you will see 2 air vents, you can feed it through the drivers side vent just by lifting up a rubber flap.

    The back light doesn't need to be removed at all
