Just got a call from FPV re Clutch

Just heard from FPV and they say they will have the fix for Typhoon circlip in about 3 weeks. They say it has affected about 14 Typhoons so far.

Nice of them to call us owners I thought.

Re: Just got a call from FPV re Clutch

So will this be the interim fix or will the cars commence production again?

No, this is the (supposed) real fix. The interim fix doesn't really exist. There is an option of replacing the circlip with a heavier duty version but the way the clutch operates it is likely to fail again.... might as well replace it with the original.

3 weeks? I'll believe that when I see it.

Matt, have you got your letter yet regarding the offer from David Flint???

Re: Just got a call from FPV re Clutch

Hi Matt. Saw your F6 at the big BP service centre off the M1 on Sunday arvo. Looked like she needed a bath mate, but black is like that.

I have my F6 in at the dealer getting new clips fitted to at least get me moving. Apparently one of the 3 original clips had broken. They are having more trouble finding a new gearbox after telling me they wanted to replace the old one. Now up to 11 days in a Fairmont and no reactrion when I push them for an FPV replacement. No sign of a letter from FPV, thought I have spoken to Guy a few times.

Sorry to hear you need a gearbox replacement as well, Craig. As soon as you get your letter I'd be taking it straight to the dealer and showing them. Don't be too disappointed in the Fairmont though... just think mate it could be ......a Berlina

Re: Just got a call from FPV re Clutch

Sounds like a positive sign for now for the f6 owners which is good. You guys will be getting big head turns and once you start doing your slight mods the holden boys would die to get the attention you'd be getting!!!

Yeah got the letter today. I am considering it as my car is a little dodgy on some changes. Might take it to my dealer and see what they think.

Yeah that was me, had been at a sports carnival all weekend and parked under trees. It had been shit all over and dusty as crap. I did wash it the next day and it was clean for about an hour, should have seen her then, wow!
