Just had a letter today asking me to arrange to bring my vehicle in for a safety check on the above. Interested if anybody else has received a similar request. Check is FOC of course.

On my car at least, the recall consisted of attaching a bright red sticker to the SBC cables saying something like "Do not remove ties during servicing". The installation was also photographed.

According to the pretty lady looking after me, only two technicians in the dealership are allowed to attach the stickers and both she and they had to go to Milton Keynes for instruction and to more or less sign in blood that they accepted responsibility for carrying out the mod correctly. Sounded good anyway. ;)

That is about it. Earlier recalls on the SBC braking system had not always been done correctly in terms of securing electrical connections thanks to iffy instructions.

So this is to confirm the recall work has actually been done in the first place and if so done correctly.
