    Default Handbrake recall.

    Sorry to bring the well covered handbrake issue up again, but ive looked high and low, been to the dealers and looked on the VOSA website and seen nothing about a recall for the handbrake. I thought the were recalling them to fit an extra spring in the button or something?

    They are, but I believe they're working on sourcing the parts and getting the details of what to do written up and sent to all the dealers before they actually issue a recall. Otherwise they'll have loads of people turning up at dealers enquiring about a recall letter they've received and the dealers not in a position to deal with it.

    I've never had a problem with mine before but a couple of times over the past week, its made a very funny clunk when applying it and the lever feels like it misses a few teeth as I pull it up!

    Must remember to refer to the yellow label from now on...

    Edit: The dealers know the recall is coming, mine said they would notify me as soon as it was available.

    I just wonder how long it will be after the repair, the first handbrake fails again its bound to happen.

    Who will be first ?

    Default handbrake

    Vauxhall as of next week are getting technicians at dealers to participate in virtual classroom training on how to carry out the recall. i imagine the parts will become available shortly afterwards and the recall will begin.
