Vauxhall Astra G Petrol (1998 - 2004) - 99 1.8 fitting new headlight on astra

I know I need to have a whole new headlight before my MOT this year.

No problem acquiring one at a good price, but is it expensive to get fitted?

I'm wondering how complex it could be considering how annoyingly awkward fitting just the bulbs can be!

Any pre-warning would be gratefully received! I'll sit down just in case ;-)

Thanks

Might be worth getting a look at a Haynes Manual. Even buying one would work out cheaper. Try a scrapper for the replacement too. If changing it is anything like my Megane was it's quite a long fiddly job - taking off half the front of the car. Neverthless, I did it for £25 - bit less than the £200 I was quoted.

You'll need to remove the front bumper.

From there is should be fairly straight forward.
