    Bad press is the key to this. As you say Vx (and all other manufacturers) hate it. The Dealers will have been told to keep quiet.

    Don't point them towards the thread actually copy the text and email them with it. Be polite but insistent. Threaten to put it on Facebook and in the motoring press. After the VAG emissions scandal they don't need any bad press.
    All the best, keep us informed.

    To all those that had the issue 'sorted' by a software alteration or recalibration are you sure that they haven't just switched off the notification?

    Sorry my twisted mind is working here. If you are nearly at 18k which is the warranty mileage limit for a clutch is this just a way to get you to 21 or 22k so Vx can say they're sorry it is over the mileage limit.

    Devious mind, is mine!

    But true if it was not true the dealer would have said "we have switched it of untill parts arrive" but the way i read it they just kept quite until questioned.

    HI Jace, had your car covered more or less than 18000 miles? I started having this problem just over a month ago on my 17 plate sports tourer, the dealer wanted to replace the clutch but because of 23000 mileage had to raise a case with vauxhall who are denying any knowledge of this fault. Cheers

    No it was on 41,000 so way over the clutch warranty. Done another 10,000 since it was changed with no issues. The garage did raise a case with Vauxhall though before the agreed to replace it.

    Sorry. No paperwork all done over the phone. You need to take a photo of the warning message when it appears on the dash. That worked for me.
