You've been robbed lad. Just had my 20k service in Edinburgh, which included the cable replacement and fittings amongst other recalls and upgrades.Mat5150 said:If it's of any interest I took my Captiva in for the above recall today. I only had to have a nut replaced and the cable was fine apparently. The job only took 20min from start to finish.
2013 on a 62 plate auto 4wd.
Obviously you were the lucky one who it alright in the first place in the factory. Mine is the latter and all was replaced, even though was in good condition according to the mechanic. Prudence I suspect, better to have done than wait till it fails.Mat5150 said:Incorrect Scouse-Mafia. The cable only has to be changed if the insulation has not been correctly heat shrunk,however mine has been done correctly at the manufacturing stage,tho a majority haven't.the nut is also part of the recall that has to be replaced due to them being the wrong heat grade,as was done to mine.not all Captivas and Antaras have to have the cable changed....Antara has the same recall.

Garage called today to say that the wiring from battery to starter and alternator is what has caused the problem with burning starter out. Warranty company wont pay and chevrolet have said its not there [their] (there is a place) problem either and are wanting to charge £891 to fit new cables and then charge warranty company for another new starter motor. How can it possibly cost that much for 1 Cable harness?
