Re: Hi From Cornwall

Thanks cooldad. I don't have any issues but I'm trying to get my head around whether it's possible to mirror my iPhone to the intellilink screen rather than the limited apps available through Carplay? I've seen a video on youtube with it being done but they don't tell you how - I can't find anythin...

Re: Android Auto.

As I've mentioned before in other threads / posts on this issue, I've not found the cable to be a problem. I use a very non-standard set up, ie, a split 'Y' cable, which charges the handset from the socket near the gear lever (formerly the cigarette lighter!) with a USB adapter and the other section...

Re: Hi From Cornwall

Hello and welcome to the forum! Many people find the 'Intellilink' a bit challenging at first, but you'll soon get used to it. Do you have any specific issues you're having difficulty with. If so, just ask - we're here to help. Ignore the people who simply say 'look at the manual, look at the manual...

Re: Seatbelt mechanism noise

Picked the car up this afternoon and......... Rattled on first bump! Turned around and went back. End result is it's booked in with the service manager next Friday! Third time lucky [emoji3] Interestingly, the Meriva(!) they loaned me had the exact same issue. I suggested they practice on that car ...

Re: TPMS sensor

Funny enough my left passenger side rear wheel dropped below and I had a warning on dash when I started the car. I thought I had a nail in it but couldn’t see one so pumped it back up twice. It stayed up over the last week so god knows what’s going on! Mine's done that too (on the front nearside) f...

Re: Hi!

Personally, I work in the sales area rather than service so don't hear a great deal of problems to be honest. At least, not one one common theme. I know of one person who's had similar issues with his IntelliLux headlights and the car has been in a small handful of times, I think he's happy now. Th...

Re: Hi!

Thanks for joining and welcome! What would really interest me is detail on the main issues are concerning the 'K'. That is, what is it that most customers complain about and require rectifying? From my perspective, the most irritating thing is the lack of response on the tunnel / darkness detector f...

Re: My Vauxhall Registration

Nope, never bothered. I don't have the app either. I have paper records and dealer stamps to record the service history. Besides, things like tyre changes and any paintwork repairs, etc, under my 'cosmetic' warranty wouldn't be recorded in that way, so I keep all my documents together in a folder. B...
