    Vehicle : Vauxhall Astra-J

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTi

    Year : 2013

    Default

    I hunted high and low for some. Ended up getting some from a breakers. Had to search several cars, and ended up getting one here, a couple there, and another one from somewhere else.

    Then I discovered Vauxhall didn't bother using them on the CD70, CD30, etc. It was only the CCR2006, etc that they fitted them to.

    The grub screws are standard M4 (4mm) threaded items available from any respectable engineers store.

    As suggested they are there purely to baffle the opportunist thieves from getting extraction tools in...

    From memory, most half CAN head units are a very tight fit in their cages anyway.

    Regarding the different addresses, I would assume that if the dealer is really spot on, then he would merely want reasonable proof that the name of the registered keeper is the same as the name of the person with your face on your photo ID..
