• Finding Vauxhall Paint Codes

    Cars come in a weird and wonderful array of colours, which is great until you need to find out which exact shade of touch-up/repair paint you need to order after an issue.

    Most manufacturers give shades both a name and a code - "Black Sapphire" (20R) , "Flame Red" (79L) - but, there may be multiple codes/shades within a name.

    This documentation details how to find the paint code for a Vauxhall car. In this case, it's a Corsa but the information is available on all models, it's only the location which may change.

  • Vauxhall Corsa D Headlight Bulb Replacement

    The Vauxhall/Opel Corsa D was designed and manufactured whilst GM was firmly in control of production. As a result, the simple task of replacing a headlight bulb has been made needlessly complicated (and frankly, shouldn't be legal).

    If you're stuck on the side of the road reading this, then the bad news is this isn't something you're going to want to try.

    In order to replace headlight bulbs (particularly the dipped beam) on a Vauxhall Corsa D it's necessary to remove the front bumper. It is, at least, relatively straightforward to do, just a little involved.

    This documentation details the procedure to follow.
