To find out if your ADAM or Corsa is affected, you will have to check the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN Number) and the production code on the intermediate shaft.
To do so, please have the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of your Vehicle available.
You will find the VIN Number on the lower area of your vehicle windscreen or in the registration documents of your vehicle.
