    Default facelift conversion

    Just been to a Vauxhall salvage yard and told them what I was looking for.

    They are telling me that the lights have different connections to that on the pre facelift and was going on about airbag sensors etc.

    is this right

    you say fit in the same place, does that mean i take them from my old wings (if thats where they are) and place them into my facelift wings

    Although the head-lamp units themselves are different.

    Normally though, Vauxhall do try to rationalise on connectors and colour codes.

    For example, it is the same connector for the front fogs on Vectra-A, B and C, Omega-B, Cavalier 3, Astra-F, G and H and similar models across the range.

    Same goes for horns etc... so unless they are talking AFL, etc, then I don't expect that there would be any differences.
