Think I might take the car somewhere remote and use the igniter for a purpose for which it was not intended before making my insurance claim!

Just a thought? I can get an Extended Warrenty leave it for just after the cooling off period get the Fault cleared & log the problem.
?? worth the risk?

Check out the Tesco policy - there's no "cooling off" period!

BUT BEWARE - there are 3 VERY different levels so you need to read it all carefully to make sure you have got the cover you think you have because it depends on mileage and car age.

There's a thread running on extended warranties - check it out:

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=6159&p=54026&sid=9f94964a57b0e7ae4ef4589330f71d92#p54026

We had people telling us what great deals they'd got on Tesco's only to realise that it doesn't work for everyone as at the lower levels the cover on a complex 4x4 like the Treg is just not enough.

Also make sure your policy does cover 4x4.

Two of us who went with Warranty Direct both ticked the box on line for 4x4 and auto only for the paperwork to turn up wrong - no 4 wheel drive cover! A phone call in each case put it right so check the paperwork immediately you get it!!
