Having problems finding a Vauxhall dealer in or near Fife to inspect my rusty tailgate, all they are interested in is selling new cars, can anyone recommend one please.
My book has been stamped and all anti corrosion checks done but they are just not interested.
Might dictate where I go for my next car........

I know its a bit further away but i can highly recommend Fiskens up in Forfar. Give them a call and ask for Kenny in the bodyshop. He will take a few pictures and some details and send the claim off for you.

Thats where I got my Antara done. They will sort you out with a courtesy car.

Its ether that or you have Arnold clark in Dundee. I know Peter Vardy use outside bodyshops to do the work but they should still be able to do it.

At least Fiskens and Arnold clark in dundee have their own bodyshop.

I contacted Kerr and smith at Cumnock today and the work on the tailgate has been approved and will be repaired in the new year.

Providing the anti -corrosion has been stamped in the service booklet when the vehicle has been serviced and it is under 6 years old then they are obliged to do the work under warranty. Had mine done but the service book had to be scanned and forwarded to Luton with a photo of the corrosion before the work was authorised. Luckily the previous owner had this check done BUT on my first service had to take the booklet back as they had forgot to check and stamp that part of the booklet.

Aye the first thing I checked before I signed for the car was the anti corrosion checks and service record,it was a mobility car beforehand and not looked after very well by the owner.it has only done just over 17000 miles but the book was stamped which is the main thing.

That's good news, mine was in exactly the same spot on both sides of the number plate . Just check for over spray on your VX badge and number plate and chrome rail as I had to send mine back to be cleaned up.
