Having an absolutely nightmare trying to get a new rear light for my VXT. The clear outer plastic lense fell off while driving (hence I don't have it) two weeks ago. As Vauxhall don't sell the lense separately, I have to buy a whole new unit (£301+VAT).
As if that wasn't bad enough, I can't even get the bloody thing ordered!! Have called around a number of Vauxhall garages (most of which had absolutely no interest in helping) and finally settled on Go Vauxhall in Chislehurst (my nearest main Vauxhall garage and VX "specialist"). They don't have any rear lamps in stock and won't place the order for the lamp until I pay upfront in full for the part. But they tell me that there are none in the UK at all and the part is on back order. They have no idea when it will arrive but say it could be months.
Just to make things even worse, I want to use my Vauxhall Service Club 25% discount and £25 voucher to reduce some of the (astronomical) cost but they have absolutely no idea how to process those.
So the bottom line is that I am going to end up having to pay around £350 upfront for a part I may never even receive all because a £10 plastic lense fell off. Joy.
Any tips/thoughts/ideas very welcome!!
