It seems there's a known problem with GM transfer boxes which wears a hole in the casing. In the US there's a company calledMerchant Automotive who sell a modified transfer pump to upgrade the stock OEM pump housing. See this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nj5ZS8wOmNk

Does your car have high mileage? Is your car being fixed under warranty with vauxhall?

That looks scary!!!

Unfortunately this is nothing new with 4wd vehicles. The freelander2 has the same issues with the transfer box and haldex unit.
