how to change led lights in speedometer for a vectra c 2002 model...what jind of bulbs are needed?
Hello again Kenneth..

This is MIKE - I am the same person who answered your other question re the needle fixing..

As you have the dash apart for the bulbs - if you look at the rear - the PCB - (board) you will see the black ( sometimes other colours too ) - bulb holders.

To change the bulbs you just grip the little holder and twist them free - they are much like a household bulb - just twist and pull though..

The bulbs you can get from any Vauxhall dealer parts dept or car shop - either way they are not expensive.

Yours is on a year change but some you had to change the whole holder with bulb - others, the bulb would pull out of the holder with a firm grip on the glass - try that but be careful not to break it. If its the type that you cannot pull the bulb out, Vauxhall dealer parts dept is your best bet - if it is the removable type, then any car shop - Their books will tell you what you need - usually a 1.2 capless bulb.

Let me know if you need anything else...

how do you remove 3rd brake light in the tailgate of the vectra c jas to be taken put from the outside because the inside is sealed tight so its not possible from inside...any idea on how to remove it?

Hello again Ken..

yes..and its sealed up on the inside so its supposed to be removed from the outside

Hello again Ken -

Thank you for your reply - Im sorry I missed you earlier -

The LED strip comes out of the aperture through the inside Ken - you have to remove the cover panel on the inside to gain the access to the inside of the lamp to remove it .. Im not sure what the issue you have is there - but thats the way to get the unit out..

Kind Rgds, MIKE.
