  2. Anyone know what these 2 connectors I found behind centre console tunnel are for ?

    Astra G
    I'm replacing the F23 gearbox on my MK4 Astra with an F35 from an Opel 2.2 DTI and was working on the car over the weekend, I had to remove the console tunnel trim so I could get to the F23's gear selector to remove it because it uses a cable shift linkage and the F35 that's going in uses a rod...

I've got a 1.7 dti that wouldn't start, after much reading I reckoned it would be the EDU, just changed that now but I still have to prime by switching on and off before it will turn over.
