Hi

Before the update my Petrol model didn't do the sweep but afterwards it did.

Cheers

Have never had any issue with the fuel gauge or My Vauxhall app not indicating full and all of my gauges sweep.

You'd think seeing as some cars are unaffected Vauxhall must have the correct software so I wonder why their not uploading it onto the affected cars

Hi

This would suggest there is more than one version of the update around. Unfortunately I don't know of a way to see which version is now installed as the version numbers given in the NAVI900 unit didn't change on mine after the update.

Before the update none of my needles did the sweep now all four do.

Cheers

I've also had a new set of clocks fitted due to the needle reading below empty which was different when compared to another one in the workshop. When mine is on empty I've still got 60 miles range

Spare wheel

There's no room in my boot under carpet for a spare wheel. Just a flat floor with the car battery.

Surely the cars should all be the same

No room in my boot for a spare wheel. If I lift carpet it's just a flat floor with the car battery.

Hi

Mine was factory fitted so I assume it has a different under carpet arrangement.
