Hi Vlad

I notice in your photo you have what appears to be an "ARK" brand towbar tongue - it isn't one of the recalled ones, is it?

Just checked the recalls site and it is for ISUZU Dmax, Holden Rodeo and Holden Colorado with dates for sale between 01/01/2006 and 14/08/2014. Mine was freshly made in March, 2015.

Ahh, doh, thanks for that. My serial number is A187 so just falls in the recall range. Have rang them and left a message.
