    Vehicle : VEC SRI CDTI 150 NOW 190

    Trim : SRI EDITION 100 INTERIOR

    Engine : DIESEL

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 80,000

    Default dreaded fog lights!!

    Well today the dreaded fog light went on my 08 vectra.

    On my last one i took it to dealer and he charged me £100 to change as he said they needed to remove the front bumper!

    firstly is this true and if so how the hell do i get the yellow warning off the dash cos im not paying that!!

    Also ive managed to secure edition 100 full interior and door cards that i plan to fit in the next week and any tips would be appreciated.

    If i have posted in the wrong section as im a newbie please mods feel free to move to correct section.

    Thanks in advance.

    Put it this way mate for 100 quid I'd be able to cover my fuel all the way to you an back.

    have a meal few beers and give you some change.

    seriosly tho a independent garage will fit it for 10/15 quid

    If its not a derv you'll be able to change it no problems by putting front wheel on curb an crawling underneath

    For the fog light bulb?

    Can get to it without removing the front bumper.

    It's easier to remove it tho, which isn't difficult. (How 2 on here)

    Swapping the bulb is even easier, there's a disc on the bottom of the foglight, undo that, unclip the bulb, then fit the new one.
