    Eek Warning On Air Freshener

    Just be very careful when you use the "Tree Air Freshener". If you hang it from your wiper or light stalk... IT MELTS THE DASH!!!!!

    I've just paid out £17.00 to have it replaced - not warranty you know....

    THE STORY:
    I took the car in (knew full well not warranty - but read on) saying that dash was looking strange and not sure if something inside had "melted" the dash or what? Straight away offered a 56 reg courtesy car - very sorry is was an Astra and not a Vectra etc etc kiss bum kiss bum!! Had a phone call yesterday to say that they had found the problem behind the dash and had to order a new key recognition relay and a sim card???

    Collected tonight paying £17.00 for dash and being told the rest is under warranty...
    Is this a problem that you know about out there (Forgot to say that Service manager wanted me out of the car in case it caught fire)

    Let me know.

    it wouldn't be a sim card, but the CIM module that the key talks to..

    which part of the dash did it melt??

    It Is The Lower Section Of The Pinicle Around The Steering Wheel
    It did not melt as such but the covering blistered and lifted
    I didn't know I had a fault on the car so why replace something that's not broke ??
