    depends on how hard you drive...
    wouldn't hurt to check every 3 months to assess the wear rate.

    it's the fitment of a small spring to the handbrake lever to stop it from self releasing and yes it was a recall

    I had the same health check after handbrake recall, told me front & back brakes worn 80%. Had brakes inspected by a mechanic I know, told me brakes only half worn if that. Plenty of miles left. Get them checked before handing harded earned over to the dealer.

    Nothing showing in Recall section of forum
    Can someone get details of chassis numbers and is there anyway of checking if mine has been done. Anything to look for on car. There is a sticker on drivers side sunvisor about applying handbrake without pressing button.

    The recall was for ALL Vectra 'C's and Signums irrespective of age or chassis number. The sticker was sent out to all registered keepers as an interim measure before the recall was announced.
