I've heard petrols can be affected to.

Thanks for the intel.

Is there any guidance on what range of cars are affected (manufacturing date)?
Yes. It affects all Vauxhall Astra K 1.6 Diesel's from the very first models supplied in 2015-2018. From next year onwards they're producing a superseded or alternative set of parts that fixes the issue.

Most of the time the clutch elbow and pipe will fix the issue but we've seen lots of instances where we've had to replace the slave cylinder and master cylinder as well.
Thanks ArcanumFox.

What actually is the fault? Leaking hydraulic pipe? Dodgy seals in the cylinders?

Me too
1.6 BiTurbo with 15,500 miles - not a full failure - caught it pre-failure - problems with hill start and clutch being floppy for first 2/3rds of travel, low biting point (gear crunching) and hard to push as everything happened in the last 1/3rd. Clutch sleeve and slave cylinder replaced (1 week waiting for parts / removing gear box)
