    Advice for a noob replacing coilpack!!

    hi, ive got a coilpack for my 1.4 16v 2001 astra on order,

    few questions before i replace it (tommorow)

    what do i need to get the coilpack out? is it just the 2 bolts on top?

    any special notes regarding the connector? i seem to recall reading a few posts on here about snapped connectors etc

    and finally do i need to disconnect the battery whilst doing this?

    thanks

    "SHOULD" be 2x T8 Torx bolts but if you haven't got the correct bit to get them off then I think it's a 10mm socket that will fit them..

    You just need to unplug it carefully mate lift it all out (will be stiff at first) then refit the new one in the same way, screw it down but not excessively enough to break it lol and plug it back in - the plug only fits one way..

    It's not a hard job at all and you can leave the battery on as long as the keys are out of the car..

    wavey blue hit it right on the head. If its tight and doesn't want to shift use a spanner and attack from the plug side to try and lift it. Obviously attempt to lift it out as square (level) as you can.
