    Hi mate it should be covered by warranty
    Do not take no for answer they will try it on
    I used to be in this trade
    Ask see manager and state not fit for purpose no gearbox should go after that mileage
    Most 12 month warrantys will cover it but they may say wear and tear
    Tell them you will got to Vauxhall UK
    They are fully aware there is issues with the gearboxes in these vehicles

    Is this a new vehicle Tenchy?

    If so and gone wrong in just 10 months it is a warranty issue and if they claim otherwise look up the goods and services act and threaten the with that as they have sold a vehicle 'not fit for purpose'

    I bought a second hand laguna last year 2007 from a used dealer for £1300.
    A month later something big went wrong and the bill was £550. He tried every excuse I threatened him with goods and services and I finally accepted him paying £450 towards the total cost so I does work.

    There are lots of consumer laws we do not use enough even on second hand stuff. I suggest if need be consult the Citizens Advice if the garage won't play ball.
    Good luck mate.

    If the vehicle finance is through Vauxhall mate you've got something
    U need to contact them and tell them what's happened there is a loophole and you can get out the arrangement but little call to them and your van will be fixed
