    Does the copy splitter have the dogs tooth locater lugs as on the original ,if so then you need a set of spring clips to hold the spliter on also there should be some self tapper screw holes on the ends of the splitter

    It has the lugs but not the self tapper holes.

    Any idea how much the clips are and do they need to be from Vauxhall?

    Not sure if you can get the spring clips from vauxhall , you used to be able to get them from irmscher Uk
    Sorry no idea on price i have never had to buy any .
    If you can not get the spring clips then an alternative is to drill through the lug and put zip tye,s on to hold the splitter in place.

    I just fixed mine on with a couple of screws through the underside of the bumper and into the lugs. I did the two end ones at each side. The front is secure and wont pop out as the lugs hold it in place. The cable ties are a good idea too as bobssignum mentioned!
