Heya, where can i get the correct spark leads for a 1.2 8V engine as the ones halfords say are for my car (both bosch and thier own brand) are about 2" too short to reach from the dizzy cap to the spark plugs... :mad:

Tried them mate, longest 1 wont reach from the dizzy to the spark plugs...
they do! i bought the Bosch set and they fitted fine. my mate had the same engine and got the Halfords own brand ones, and they fitted fine with plenty slack.

if you really want, i will take a picture of said spark plugs going from the dizzy to the plugs :rolleyes:

IIRC, this is how mine is set up

sorry for the crap paint effort :laugh:
others may have a different set-up, but if i have got mine right, yours will be the same, but with the dizzy rotated at some angle or another.
will double check this when i go out to my car, but IIRC, that is how it mine is set up

the longest lead goes from the spark plug on the left, 2nd longest -second from left, etc

Cant see why Halfords would sell HT leads for a corsa that wont fit, you got the wrong ones, or they werent labelled properly
