159 issues

Got a couple of issues with my beloved 159....

1. Drivers seat squeak. I'm not particularly heavy but after moving the seat on Saturday to remove mat it now squeaks quite a bit when driving along. Tried some WD40 on the reclining mechanism that I can get to, which has improved it but is still annoying.

2. Have also noticed the steering wheel lock doesn't lock too well, I can hear it activating after removing the key but does not lock the wheel in position.

Are these issues worth taking up with my not so local dealer or should I wait until the service is due? This is not for another 6k or so. If dealer I'm thinking of taking it to Northgate in Canterbury. Finally is the interior covered under the 2nd year of warranty. Mine is a 56 plate. Reason I ask this is that the Vauxhall I had only had a year on the interior trim!
