    You need someone with tech2 or vaux-com to reprogram your clocks to tell it that the sport button is present.

    It's a toss-up as to whether you have the right components inside the clocks or not, so it might not work. I have made it work okay on one 1.4, three 1.6's and two 1.7's.

    The only reliable way is plugging in with tech2/vauxcom, turning the sport button on (without it being there), then looking at the fault codes. If there is a fault code logged for sport button LED, then the clocks can take the sport button; if there are no fault codes it can't.

    There are so many variants of clocks fitted to the Astra's (even though they look the same from the outside) that trying to do it any other way would be even more difficult.
