    Is it a proper DVLA involved recall? As I won't be taking my GF's Ibiza back to any of the local dealers unless we get a letter

    are you confusing warranty with recall?

    Recalls are issued thru DVLA

    I think the recalls are issued by the manufacturers themselves, off their own back, or pressure from VOSA/Customers. IIRC VOSA and DVLA just use their database to get as many of the owners as poss.

    If there is a recall, will the dealer do it even if the hose isnt cracked?
    might give my local dealer a ring tomorrow and find out the situation.

    yeah. it possibly could go at any time, it looks like the pipe is actually a bit on the small side to be stretched obver the tpiece

    What about people that have actually had it replaced, say 7k miles ago?

    Me too. Mine's 02 (one of the very last) but I can't see it being any different to a 51 plate. I might ring my local dealer.

    I'm just waiting on a reply back from SEAT UK, so it'll save you calling if you can't be assed to explain it to a befuddled service manager

    I thought maybe they were fitting a more suitable pipe, not much point if they've replaced the original with the same thing.

    I'm a little confused with this, is it work done free by seat if requested as opposed to an actual recall?
