I didn't get any pictures... they saw me the parts changed in a box.
You cannot keep the parts because they must sent them back to Opel with a unique reference number concerning your vin number.
besides the changing parts I got also a report for the reprogramming of the electronic braking module.
You also get warning messages from onstar while they perform the changes. First message was for the abs and second for the esp. This testifies also the changing.
I don't think that you have to afraid of something because your dealer will be paid by Opel after the recall repairs.
No more 1st stage test are needed. Opel says that all the cars involving this recall go immediately for service IF the parts have arrived.

They probably want the parts back to :

1. Attest that a certain VIN has had the parts changed (They know the S/N of the part that was originally installed, so they know what car the part comes from)

2. Not risk someone "refurbishing" these parts and selling them on, only to have the blame fall on Vauxhall if the "refurbished" part goes bad and someone plows into a crowd, killing a bunch of people.

thanks.

i asked them for pictures (they said yes) because opel services here in turkey are notoriously bad, overpriced and there is swindling involved. not that they can sell the faulty parts to someone else but they simply wouldn't bother to change at all but tell the customer that they had!

btw, opel turkey did not notify any of its customers about this recall. i had to find it out myself! that's a scandal on itself :evil:

Ohhh I see.... It is very strange indeed that they don't inform people about such a serious matter.

Since having all the parts replaced I now have problems with "Engine Power Reduced" where the engine sort of spins/revs more rather than propel the car. Happens regularly everyday and now I have the "Service Transmission" coming up on the dash. Only had the car back about two weeks. From reading previous threads this "service transmission" is linked to the clutch slave cylinder which was the main subject of the urgent recall. I hope this is linked to what has been replaced/work done as car has just went out of warranty.

Wondering if anyone will be able to help me on this?

Basically my hire car from Europcar has a slow puncture I think, I’m pretty sure it was there when I received the car because pretty much from the start I’ve been pumping one of the tires up weekly, do I keep going as I am and just living with it, or do Vauxhall’s cover the costs from Europcar? I don’t wanna ring them directly incase they try and sting me with a big bill?
