    Come on then, be my guest and have a look.....:D

    I have heard of this and I do have the LSD on my car but as yet no recall from the dealer. Should I get in touch with them or wait to be contacted?

    get in touch, if they are anything like Renault you may never hear from them about the recall.

    This is a service measure as opposed to a recall.
    The dealer has probably been asked to change the differential oil when they next see the car.

    I think it's more than just a service measure.

    It does however clearly state on a window sticker that the cars diff oil has to be changed at 1800 miles, and that is normal.

    Anyway we'll see......if I hear some grinding noises I'll go and see them.....:eek:

    I checked the VOSA site and there is no recall shown, so it isn't a recall. It wouldn't be for this anyway as it's not a safety issue.

    As you can see from the link, I was just quoting what I had read.
    Thanks for the clarification :)
