Vauxhall astra - anti-freeze change - crol
I have a Vauxhall Astra 1.6 (2001). I am wanting to change the anti-freeze and wanted to know how to go about this. Is it as simple as removing the bottom hose of the radiator? It has air-conditioning as well, will this affect anything. Any advice would be helpful or would it be best to leave it to the professionals?

Yes just drop off a hose, if the waters at all rusty look flush the system out before putting in new anti freeze
Vauxhall astra coolant change - crol
I have a Vauxhall Astra 1.6 2001 which I think may need a Coolant change. However, the Vauxhall manual states that it is a long life coolant and only needs to be checked and topped-up if required. Is this correct and how long will the coolant last?

If I do have to change the coolant how do I go about doing this? Even getting the pipes off seems difficult, it doesn't have the old jubilee clips as my old car did. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Nigel
