Fitting Mk3 Astra Indicator Stalks into a Mk1
Firstly you need the indicator stalks and plugs from the Mk3 astra,make sure you have plently of wire spare on the wiper stalk as this will be needed to wire it in.
The plugs have code numbers and letters on the back so fitting is simply a case of matching wire to code.
These are as follows: -
The wiper stalk
N.B. Where * appears see below.
[b]Code Number [b]Mk3 stalk [b]Mk1 Loom
31 Brown wire this wire is not used (tape out of the way)
WH Black/Grey Black/Red
53h Black/Yellow Blue*
53b White White
W Black/Red Black/Red*
53 Yellow Yellow
53a Black/Yellow Black/Yellow
53e Blue Blue
J Black/Yellow Black/Yellow
* In the case of 53e and W,On your Mk1 loom,you have two Blue wires and two Black/Red aswell.Before joining in these wires,check the corresponding code number on your mk1 stalk to make sure the right wire goes to the correct terminal
The Indicator Stalk
This plugs straight in! You can even use the original Mk1 plug.This shows how good the Mk1 was as they still use the same plugs nowadays!!!
The rubber gaiters that go and the end of the stalks fit on if you modify your lower steering column cowling. Cut atleast a 4cm gap out and this will ensure the rubber fits snugly and doesnÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢t cause the cowling to spring open under the pressure of the rubber.
Refit the new stalks and put your steering cowling back together and admire!
