    Passenger mirror

    I believe pre and post facelift are the same, there might be some difference in the wiring connector but it should just be a plug and play swap.

    Wrong belt length - can someone advise?

    Quickest way would be to snip the old belt in half, then run round all the pulleys with the tensioner set roughly in the middle, mark where it overlaps then remove and measure. Then buy a belt closest to your measurement.

    Headlight bulb replacement. (First Car)

    Welcome. Bulbs are an easy job, driver side can be fiddly due to lack of space though. From memory they are H7 bulbs, I would recommend Osram Nightbreaker Plus, much better light output. Open bonnet, locate the caps on the back of the headlights, twist to remove it, unclip plug on the bulb...

    New member looking for advice on 1997 SRI

    Welcome. It all depends on how rusty it is really, they have a tendancy to rust inside the sills and rear arches which isnt noticable until its too late and if left its very time consuming/costly to repair. Unfortunately they arent really collectable. A clean car with good MOT will probably go...

    Front lower cross member help

    It is a fairly big job. Id imagine somewhere around 5-6 hours labour if you are getting a garage to do it. As for parts, the Almera is different to the Tino so you need the Tino specific part, however im not entirely sure where you would find one, have a try googling it.

    Almera gti

    They are quite few and far between nowadays. And the chances of finding a clean one are even more slim. Keep an eye on eBay and Gumtree, aswell as the Almera owners facebook page.
