    Default Urgent Advise Please

    Some may re-call I suspected a swirl valve problem on the 2.2 direct petrol Veccy just before Christmas. Well after phoning Vauxhall they said to contact the garage for a proper opinion / check and they will deal withnit from there.

    I have just left the car with a local Vauxhall garage and they said that if it is a swirl valve, then Vauxhall would only pay 50% as its 5 weeks out of warranty and I will have to pay for hooking it up to Tech2. I asked what that means in a bill to me. The answer was £465, with Vauxhall paying the 400 towards the swirl valve cost.

    This seems very costly to fix a swirl valve, that has been fixed twice before!

    The last time was approx 8 months ago and I would have thought that it would have been within some warranty on that repair??

    Any feed back would really be appreciated guys before I go mad.

    I would have thought that the part would have had a one year guarantee on it .

    Tell them that ^^ and also that you'll be speaking to Vx Customer services. Be nice, but firm. If their part has failed in less than 12 months it wasn't fit for purpose IMO

    At the most you should pay is 10% of the cost. Not 50% as it is only 5 weeks out of warranty

    Thanks for the replies so far guys, much appreciated. I really don't know what to do now. I think I will start with Vauxhall on the warranty and will advise how I get on. What a pain in the lower regions eh.

    any parts fitted under warranty is only covered till the end of the cars warranty,had you paid something towards the fitting of the part then the warranty on this part will be either 1 or 2 years depending on the item

    That sounds like a get out if ever I heard one. I would really question how long the warranty lasts for. Ask them how long the new one will be warranted for before you then say that it was only done 8months ago, so why the difference???

    Thats bad

    Be a different case if you bought the part yourself

    Then they HAVE to give you the warranty
