Yes that is special coverage bulletin number,
it's for 5 years from first registration or 100,000 km/62000miles regardless of how many owners the car may have had
Do you think this issue was rectified from factory on later models?
Cheers.

I would assume so considering a bulletin was issued regarding the fault. But might be worth checking the rear o/s light for any burn marks on the plug or pin.

My god, it seems Vauxhall are bending over backwards for me now. Just had a phone call asking if I want to get the car in sooner. Unfortunately I can’t due to work commitments.

Asked that question earlier in the thread Boroboy, my first thought, as they usual put a date and a vin number when a production improvement was implemented. .

The bulletin covers MY 2016-2020 so it would suggest they don't have a great deal of confidence of the issue being permanently sorted.

Thanks for letting us know.
Something else to keep our eyes on then.
