  • Astra VXR manifold recall

    Are all you guys aware of the manifold recall ? i would think most of you already know but for those who don't if you haven't had a letter from yr local dealer it might be worth popping down and asking them if your car is one of them that needs the studs changing.

      I only just found out when my sisters bf took his in for something else and they mentioned it to him. I went down with mine more than 3 weeks ago now and they still havent got the parts in for me to do the work, im sick of hearing their hold music lol

                I brought ours into work today for something else to be done and they did mine there and then but i do know they have had loads on back order as its not only the vxr's its all the astra's with a turbo if i'm right ?

                  not everyone has had the recal letter as vauxhall said just to do them when in for next service , this is ok for those that get service done at vauxhall dealers but those that don`t need to call into vauxhall dealers to get them checked , better safe than sorry

                      think they put a blob of paint under the manifold just to show they`ve been replaced

                            Well it was worth putting up a post then even if one person saves themself having a huge bill due to the manifold coming off hey
