    Default Urgent help on recall -

    I've just been looking on the AA website regarding Vectra recalls and i happened across this

    Recall:
    No. 1 of 10
    Recall Ref:
    R/2005/166
    Exact Model:
    Signum and Vectra
    Description:
    Rear axle hub may not be to specification
    VIN:
    SIGNUM - 00000006*102*5432 to 00000006*103*6596, VECTRA - 00000006*102*5432 to 00000006*103*6596
    Build Date:

    Numbers:
    783
    Defect:
    The hardening process applied to the rear wheel bearing inner ring may be incorrect. There is a possibility that a rumbling noise may become apparent, which if not checked could in extreme circumstances result in the detachment of the hub and severely impaired road holding/handling.
    Action:
    Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected and check the date stamp on the rear wheel hubs. Where necessary, replace the hub bearing assembly.



    Mine is *103*5326 so right in there...

    What do i do now? There is a possability that it's been sorted already as im the only person other than Vauxhall who has ever owned the car. Previous owners being Vauxhall Leasing.

    On a funny note though - "severely impaired road holding/handling." - I should imagine this would be the case having only 3 wheels on the car.

    I might also note that the car is suffering from a rumbling noise but i put this down to being tyres or just road noise.

    Call your local Vaux dealer - ask them what recalls exist and are outstanding on your car - they will look it up whilst your on the phone - all they need is the Reg no..

    Its the simple things you forget when you think the wheels are going to fall off your car

    Cheers guys just rung Penfolds (according to the service book they've always dealt with this car) and it turns out all work has been carried out and there are no outstanding recalls on it. So my wheels will not fall off...This makes me happy lmao
