Vauxhall / Opel Corsa Petrol & Diesel Oct 2000 to Sept 2003 – Haynes Service and Repair Manuals


The original Corsa models were first introduced to the European market in Spring 1993 and are covered in manual SRM 1985. The Corsa then had a facelift from April 1997 onward models which was covered in manual SRM 3921. This manual covers versions from October 2000, which were the subject of another model facelift, together with mechanical revisions.

A variety of engines are available in the Corsa range, of 1.0, 1.2, and 1.4 litre petrol engines and two versions of the 1.7 litre diesel engines. All engines are of the four-cylinder double overhead camshaft (DOHC) configuration, in-line type, with the exception of the 1.0 litre engine which is a three-cylinder unit. The engines all have fuel injection, and are fitted with- a range of emission control systems. The 1.6 and 1.8 litre petrol engines are not covered in this manual.

The Corsa is available in 3- and 5-door Hatchback, Corsavan (3-door Van based on Hatchback), and Combo Van body styles, with a wide range of fittings and interior trim depending on the model specification.

Fully-independent front suspension is fitted; the rear suspension is semiindependent, with a torsion beam and trailing arms.

The manual gearbox is of the five-speed all synchromesh type, and a four-speed electronically-controlled transmission is available as an option on certain models. An ‘Easytronic’ manual/automatic transmission is also available.

A wide range of standard and optional equipment is available within the Corsa range to suit most tastes, including central locking, electric windows, electric sunroof, anti-lock braking system, electronic alarm system and supplemental restraint systems.

For the home mechanic, the Corsa is a relatively straightforward vehicle to maintain, and most of the items requiring frequent attention are easily accessible.

Your Vauxhall Corsa Manual

The aim of this manual is to help you get the best value from your vehicle. It can do so in several ways. It can help you decide what work must be done (even should you choose to get it done by a garage), provide information on routine maintenance and servicing, and give a logical course of action and diagnosis when random faults occur. However, it is hoped that you will use the manual by tackling the work yourself. On simpler jobs it may even be quicker than booking the car into a garage and going there twice, to leave and collect it. Perhaps most important, a lot of money can be saved by avoiding the costs a garage must charge to cover its labour and overheads.

The manual has drawings and descriptions to show the function of the various components so that their layout can be understood. Tasks are described and photographed in a clear step-by-step sequence. References to the ‘left’ and ‘right’ of the vehicle are in the sense of a person in the driver’s seat facing forward.
