    RECALL

    I found out today that the Z18XE and Z18XEL are soon to be recalled due to the Inlet and Exhaust valve springs in cylinder head which MIGHT break. Models affected are Vectra C, Signum, Zafira, Astra G and H, Meriva and Corsa C. I have a list of chassis no. s but I will only post the ones for the Astra G and H. If anyone wants the chassis no. s for the rest of the cars I have posted then PM me.


    MODEL - PLANT - FROM - TO

    Astra G - Antwerp - 4 5 111593 - 4 5 149977
    Astra G - Bertone - 4 B 002673 - 4 B 005168
    Astra G - Bochum - 4 2 115141 - 4 2 144022
    Astra H - Antwerp - 4 5 118093 - 4 5 138487

    I dont know mate, you'll just have to check your chassis no. I work at a large car storage and repair centre in Livingston. We deal with alot of brand new vauxhalls and this is the information we got handed to us. We have to send every single vauxhall back to get the head cylinder changed. Seemingly the engines catch fire and explode. I dont have dates or anything just chassis no. s to and from. so get checking.

    Yep, its a recall, we've done a couple at work already.

    A16VCY I'd remove your chassis number, anyone that knows what there doing can order and cut a key with that info.

    EWGUK nope yours is not in the recall campaign.

    Bang, is that smoke coming from your bonnet?

    Im pretty sure if you give Vauxhall a call and quote them the chassis number they can check to see if the recall is outstanding, saves messing around with chassis number ranges because it gets confusing.
