The only way its "unsafe to drive" is if the wiring to the blower motor wiring has melted

Parts are slowly becoming available, but its still a bit of a lead time

If its not been done already, book it in for September-ish time


I did question the dealership regarding the safety and i was told that due to a fire risk they strongly advise the car not to be driven. I'm sure there are plenty of cars out there that are being used without the recall work having been carried out.

Anyway had a call today saying the service and recall work has been carried out and the car is ready for collection. So that's 1 week they kept the car for and after numerous apologies by the service manager i was asked to hand over 445, thats considerably cheaper than the 550 i was originally quoted for the service.
