    Took my old one of the signum and it was scotchblocked into the rear lights, also just removed one from the father inlaws zafira and his was scotchblocked into the rear lights with no problems.

    When i fitted mine to the signum i paid a local fitter to do the electrics cost me £20 quid and took him 10mins to do them. Saved me all the agro of finding the right wires and live etc they also checked all was working spot on before i left. well worth the £20

    Is that hard?

    No it's quite easy to do the holes are pre drilled in the bottom of the body and pimples in the steel at the top in the boot area.

    Drop the exhaust off the rubbers to gain better access and it will take about 1 hr to fit.
