Engine wire harness recall

Got a letter through this morning from honda asking me to arrange an appointment at my local dealer(pheonix honda grangemouth). Anyone had this and did it need replacing?

Had mine done sometime during the summer. It doesn't need replacing but has to be moved to the correct position if it was fitted incorrectly in Swindon. Unless of course it has sustained damage already.

Mine had to be moved (my car's a bit of a lemon) but it didn't take very long.

I booked my car in for a diagnostic check(55 quid)
When I went to pick it up he said my car was flagged up for the harness check. All was fine and he dosnt charge for the diagnostic check. I asume he passed the bill onto Honda for the wireing harness. Was well impressed.
My car was fine aswell

I got the letter too today. I'm in two minds wether or not to bother or just check it myself when I change the engine and gearbox oil tomorrow. The last thing I want is for them to wash my car and we all know they very rarely take notice of do not wash instructions! I'd hate to pick it up and find it covered in swirls.

My car does exactly the same. I thought It was the bulb so I changed it. But it still goes out sometimes. I think it's just the low beam tho nothing else that goes out. They said my wireing harness was fine tho.

Will be the thin wires on the bulbs. Need to push them out away from the plastic of the bulb itself and reinsert.
