    Default Handbrake question?

    Evenin all


    We are all aware of the ongoing problem with Vectra C/Signum hand brakes, now Vauxhall finally agreed there was a problem and initiated a recal to fit new springs,what about new cars coming through the factory?reason i ask is my new car was built between begining March and mid April so will the factory be fitting the new springs as standard to new builds or is up to the suppling stealer to fit new springs?. My new car is in steep compound with handbrake on but not in gear
    Any ideas or suggestions

    i can't beleive that they will not have added the new handbrake modification to production vehicles.. otherwise it's just adding to their problem..

    OK so Vauxhall should fit the replacement parts to new builds but, who would be responsible - factory or stealers bearing in mind factory are gearing up for Insignia.

    Long and short is will my new have the modified/upgraded handbrake

    the only person who can 100% tell you is the dealer who have the car.. they can check if the chassis number is in the range of those affected by the rework.. this they can find out direct from VX..
