    Default How do I find out if my car has had handbrake recall?

    Hi guys
    Do I just go into the dealers to find out if the recall has been done as car has just rolled off down the street two hours after I've parked it. Hand brake had dropped about 3 notches. Luckily no cars were parked behind

    yes if you ring the vauxhall dealer give them your reg number they will tell you if you handbrake has been done

    i rang them and they said bring it down it took less than 30 mins

    all done now but i still leave the car in gear like the handbook says

    Not gona leave it in gear as the wife forgets to depress the clutch on start up and the handbrake is designed to hold the car so should do the intended job well, so I'll just sort the issue and bobs your uncle were done

    mine went in to get done in early may , no sticker on the sun visor they just did the job & washed the car , then gave me it back .
    I always leave mine in 1st & turn the wheels to the kerb , that might have something to do with the fact that my street is very steep .

    The only trouble with calling your local dealer is that if the car is from a different area it won't be on their records. They should offer to find out from Vauxhall for you, I asked my dealer to do just this, but he never got back to me. It's far quicker to call Vauxhall customer care directly 0844 369 0112 and they'll look it up for you straight away. You probably just need the reg. number but might be worth while having a note of the vin number too.

    I did this for mine and found that it had had one recall done and there were none outstanding. It's worth knowing just for peace of mind really.

    I only bought mine in april & found a letter in the glove box addressed to the last owner , was from vauxhall saying that the handbrake recall needed doing & to ring a local dealer to arrange .
    rang our local dealer sherwoods of darlington & they sorted it no problems .
