We had a recall notice on this >12 months ago, so took it into a dealer and they made an unholy mess, simply spraying excessive, stickly grease into the mechanism (and all over the grille & engine!).

Result was:

1) 2 hours to clean off the excess
2) Stickyness of the grease just held dirt & grit, making the catch worse.

Anyway, had a second recall letter last week - took the car into a different dealer who couldn't have been better; they checked the catch, cleaned around it, fitted a complete new unit...then washed and vacuumed the car too!

Staff were friendly, polite & efficient.

The good dealer was Sutton Park in Burton-on-Trent. Highly recommended!
