No idea on a list. The OM shows clear drawings and instructions on how to change them, but no reference to types. It does state that Xenon headlamp bulbs should be replaced by a dealer and it gives a diagram of how to identify if these are installed on your vehicle, or not. Perhaps a trip to Halfords to leaf through their bulb catalogue by vehicle model (particularly if you have got to buy some anyway)?

Rear indicator- 3156
Side indicator -501. Orange
Rear fog 433d
Stop-tail -580 / 380 twin filament
Reverse -955
Tail (secondary) same as stop -tail with only one filament
Front side light -501
Front fog -psx24w
Head lights -h7
I think the front indicator is the normal bayonet type
Halfords don't have them on there web site .whent to dealers and they have to order them in
But like I said there is plenty on eBay you can get a full set for around £15 the lot

Carrying spare bulbs is not a legal requirement in France, for example, according to the RAC. If anyone has Xenons, you can't replace them yourself; sometimes the ballast goes (so I have read) so the car will be unable to be driven legally anyway. It seems that different European countries have different requirements for motorists, so do your homework first and don't mention the war (or Brexit)!

The OM states that they operate on a high voltage but the implications of this are not made clear. Now, looking at Xenons generally, it seems that they are meant to have an extremely long life. However, when/if they fail the unit price of a genuine replacement might be £70 - £100 or so (excluding the ballast). This is an internet estimate and not a Vauxhall one and in 2005 someone was quoted over £400 to replace one on a 'German car', which involved removing the bumper and front bits of the vehicle to access the unit. Apparently some bulbs have a built-in motor for adjustment. How much of all this applies to an Antara I have no idea, but clearly it is not a matter of buying a bulb for less than a tenner and changing it yourself in 15 minutes. I too have Xenons and let us hope they do indeed last the life of the vehicle. Should a replacement ever be needed I should be wary of buying an eBay equivalent (probably from China under a disguised address). I have bought a few minor electrical bits this way and they really are not up to the mark, although they are less expensive than the bona fide item.
Perhaps one of the forum members with experience can throw some light on this subject?
