Dunno about the Astra, but on the Cav's there is a set distance to be achieved for the clutch cable/pedal.

For the cav you get a long stick/piece of wood and measure from the centre of the clutch pedal to the outer edge of the steering wheel,do this with the pedal at rest and full down then, making a mark on the stick both times.
Then measure between the marks and check it against the specified distance.
Think it's 130/140mm(i think)...pedal should be just below the brake pedal.
Did this the other day when I couldn't select 5th gear. Worth checking!
Check also the cable is routed correctly in the engine bay. There is usually a hooked metal bracket thingy that supports it from the gearbox to bulkhead
