Hi Pepi,

I changed the evaporator on my old vectra and there was no need to remove the dash. I removed the side of the centre console in the passenger footwell, and there was a cover that could be removed to allow access. You can buy a replacement cover that fits over the hole once you replace the evaporator.

Part #13 in this link suggests it might be the same for the astra, hope this helps

Yes you have to make the hole, but it gets covered up again with the replacement panel.

I don't know the exact procedure for the astra, maybe it might be worth checking with someone who has a copy of TIS to know for sure
