    The recall concerns the button spring... if it takes almost no effort to press the button then you probably have the unmodified type and need it changing. If the recall has been done properly you should also have a warning sticker on the driver's sun visor reminding of how to correctly apply the handbrake (pull up without pressing button).
    I got my 54 plate done only last year so I'm lead to believe the recall doesn't actually expire. Never hurts to pop into your local Holden stealer and have them check your chassis number though - the recall is free after all.

    There is a recall on the handbrake in the UK; not sure about Australia
    This was caused by loads of complaints

    The recall is a complete waste of time
    It is supposed to stop the spring releasing
    Included is a sticker for the sunvisor

    My handbrake still releases and so I stopped using it for parking purposes

    I think the breather repositioning one was due to the chances of moisture ingress into the transmission.
    I can only guess the transmission cooler lines repositioning one might be due to chances of the oil lines being fouled or vibrating against something.
