    I think anything over 2003, they tend to be stuck on, my 99 astra has them clipped on. Funny enough i removed them for the first time today.

    They are not stuck on mate, they are push on and push off clips, the fronts push toward the back of the car and the backs towards the fronts I think. Don't quote me on getting them on or off, it does say somewhere in this forum how to do it though

    i budged mine forward a bit, then pulled them off, just be very careful with the door ones though, as if you snap the middle one with the screw you have to take the entire inside door card off, oh and you can get clips from vauxhal, there like 17p each or something

    Depends on who you listen to i guess. I've seen it asked many a time & people seem to give different answers. Some say all Astras are the same, some say it depends on year, some say stuck on, some say glued on

    everyone can't be right

    I wanted to paint mine up but don't want to risk following someones guide to find they're wrong ........ so the reason i', even replying is because in case you haven't thought of it, you could do what i plan on doing .... go to the scrappies & try it out on a similar Astra to the one you own if possible.

    Maybe even buy the strips for them & paint them up while yours stay on. Then maybe do those up too if you feel like it & sell them, if it's cost effective
