I believe the "book" price for the job is around 130 from Vauxhall dealers, however if you quote "Technical Service Bulletin 2820" it sometimes gets done for free or at least they should negotiate a contribution with the concessionaires.

Judging from the price it might be a fiddly job.

But of course this may not be the fault in this instance.

It may also be worth a chat to Vauxcare by Cammell Lairds (screwfix) who are an independent Vauxhall repairers, they may have come across it before and be able to give a reliable quote.

Good response and advice DD
I have recently had my own problems (seat belt roller fail) with a 2010 Meriva and associated dealings with Network Q. There was a contribution to the replacement cost from Vauxhall but it still cost me near 180
