    Default inlet manifold/swirl bar 70% VXL contribution

    Swirl valve linkage finally gave up on me on Monday and had to be recovered into local dealers. Total cost of new inlet manifold and swirl actuator £720. Thankfully I have AA breakdown repair cover which will cover the first £500. The service lads have been spot on and I asked them to check with VX to see if they would pay a contribution as the car is 56 plate and only 6 months out of warranty. I took along the pierburg document (link)
    to show that I knew it was a known problem. The result was VX were willing to pay a 70% contribution until they found out I had the 3rd party warranty (ie AA breakdown repair). Anyway I have only lost out by about £40 but for everyone with this problem get the dealers to contact vx for a contribution. Print off and take this document with you as it certainly worked for me!!
