    you can just add the wires and the switch carriers behind the dash but you will need to add to the body loom aswell not a 5 min job
    and it will all need tech2'd aswell.
    the easest way is to buy the looms from a scrappy and remove the wires needed then add them to your loom.
    or you could buy the tools and make your own mini looms.

    it not a hard job m8
    just takes a lot of time and no cutting wires just adding the pins/wires to the plugs thats in the car.
    looms will cost about £100 from scrappy and a couple of de-pining tools £20
    and time to depin the old looom and then add them to yours.
    wires go from the switch carriers to the bcu in passenger foot well and seat plugs to the passenger footwell loom plug then from that to the bcu.

    worst part of the job is depinning and taking the interior out of the car.
    about a days work at the most

    Vauxhall will tell you "oh no sir, that can't be done." Not trying to dishearten you, just setting a realistic expectation level.
