    astra g prodrive front bumper fitment ????????

    hi all this is doing my head in lol got an astra sri with prodrive kit but ive recently replaced both front wings as they where both damaged (where like this when i bought it) problem is the screws that screwed into the wing brackets both snapped and now i cant screw the bumper back on as standard screws seam a little too short question is, is there different screws that i should be using and if so do vauxhall still supply them

    many thanks john

    take the screws with you to b&q or something and match them up to some new ones.

    i rounded the torx screw(T25) off in wheel arches that keep the front bumper secure.

    found this part number for torx screws(T20) and they fit fine. did it all yesterday as i changed my headlights.

    T20 SCREW - 90561305 @30p each @ vauxhall dealer.

    I don't think the screws you use have to be torx. Pretty sure it wouldn't make a difference if they were philips or flat-head. Depends which is cheaper though.

    well u may well use the proper screws m8!

    30p each x 4 = £1.20, hardly breaks the bank
