    Left & right ones are the looms for the heated seat switches, the centre one is the traction control switch loom, if you have this in already then it is just a new trim panel and the TC switch and it's fitted.

    Hi & welcome....
    BTW, What spec, year & engine size is your Astra? Just wondering because you don't have Aircon so i'm assuming you have an LS or similar but you have the wiring for TC & heated seats??
    My SXi has none of that!
    Also fyi, if you don't already have them, your car probably has the wiring for heated electric mirrors too!
    You Lucky bugger lol!!

    You can get the panel + switches from Vauxhall or LMF. Can be removed by using a small flat head screwdriver to just prise it up.

    ppl seem to have missed the obvious here....

    it wont have traction control so no point fitting a switch!

    heated seats would still need to be fitted and maybe other parts of the wiring harness as well as the switches etc

    EDIT: Didnt realise this was a thread hi jack so FAO "pleekh" if u already have TC then go ahead and fit switch etc.... if not then dont!

    hiya ppl just checked mine out and i also have the 2 end switches but not the one in the middle but reading the post above mine that has in it (heated seats would still need to be fitted and maybe other parts of the wiring harness as well as the switches etc), Im guessing then that i cant just fit a switch and have a nice warm bum then can i lol and i will need the other bits to go with it too.
