iv seen it done a few times, but a mate of mine said they need a lot of modification to go into corsa clocks cos their a different size and shape, but they go straigt into novas. he said theres a guy on migweb or some other site (he couldnt remember wich) that sells ones that are ready to go into corsa's, anyone have any idea? because i really want to do it because they look mint.
or has anyone had any experience with putting the normal ones in corsas?
cheers

wiring is easy it is colour for color just remember to conect the speed sense to the ecu or you get the light on the hardest part is the transducer if your battery tray don't unscrew it's a right pain like mine was, as for fitting there's a bit of choppin' and the lad who does them charges 100 quid and your surround i got his number somewhere but i making my own,



going to local plastic place get it made from black plastic and then fit in

theres a place near me thats wiring up my heated calibra seats and valvering my mates nova, i might see if they will do it, because idont really understand how to do it.
do you just make a frame the same size as your standard clocks, and then cut the astra clocks down so they fit?

basiclly yeah, cut the sloping front panel off so they are flat then cut some of the dash out and fit them in and make a template to fit,

hmmmm i heard theres 2 wires on the back to wind the clocks forwards and backwards using a 9v battery or something? cos i want them to be genuin millage as my cars low millage for its age, and il probs leave the clocks in when i sell it anyways, so i want the clocks to tell the truth haha.

also i know the old corsa's the speedo uses a cable, where as mine is all electronic, so r the clocks all electronic or do they use a cable aswell? cos im guessing if the clocks use a cable to determine the speed then im pretty ****ed really....

this is a bit over done these days, theres plenty of wiring diagrams to fit the vx220 stack type dash in the corsa, fair doos it more expensive but its a lot more modern looking

All this talk of changing entire dash clocks, I imagine it would be fairly difficult? I'm worried about trying to change the colour of the bulbs behind mine without changing the clocks! Lol.
