    Astra Sri X-Pack Side Sills

    Hi, I have a 07 Astra Sri with the X-Pack and have noticed that cracks have appeared in the paint or the lacquer on the side sills . Has anybody else experienced this and can it be cured. Thanks.

    got the cracks in mine as well a the dealer said it was from being jacked up with a trolley jack when its had the wheels off for a tyre change or something else, so they said they would nt repair under warranty.

    Hmm. I'd be curious to know if Trading Standards agree with the suggestion they wouldn't repair the fault - surely jacking to change a wheel is an expected occasion for most cars and having paint that cracks when you do this is perhaps a design/manufacturing flaw? Had to argue for ages before they'd warranty repair bodywork issues on my Astra but in the end they did it (Trading Standards were superb, ended up having a 3rd party inspector come out to assess things before Vaux agreed).
